''In this densely imbricated quantity Derrida pursues his committed, relentless dismantling of the philosophical culture, the culture of Plato, Kant, Hegel, Nietzsche, Husserl, Heidegger—each handled in a single or extra of the essays. There are essays too on linguistics (Saussure, Benveniste, Austin) and at the nature of metaphor (''White Mythology''), the latter with vital implications for literary conception. Derrida is absolutely in command of a blinding stylistic sign up during this book—a resource of real illumination for these ready to stick to his hard direction. Bass is a wonderful translator and annotator. His notes at the multilingual allusions and puns are a superb service.''—Alexander Gelley, Library magazine

Example text

3)which becomes explicit only if the judgement is challenged or queried. Moral emotions, too, assume the character of habitual reactions. But emotions and judgements alike are grounded upon intuitions. Emotion may be the gatekeeper to the moral world; but intuition is the gate. —Not so fast. I understand you to say that at least one fundamental moral characteristic—rightness or goodness—is unanalysable. Perhaps both are. The experts are divided. In any case, the fundamental characteristic (or characteristics) can be known only by intuitive awareness of its (their) presence in some particular contemplated action or state of affairs.

It is the fact, then, that all the terms belonging to the circle are either technical terms or ordinary terms used in specially adjusted senses, that might be held to justify us in being particularly suspicious of the claims of members of the circle to have any sense at all, and hence to justify us in requiring them to pass a test for significance which would admittedly be too stringent if generally applied. This point has some force, though we doubt if the special adjustments spoken of are in every case as considerable as it suggests.

Two of them have not been previously published. The first is an intellectual memoir of Paul Grice given to a graduate seminar on ‘Oxford Philosophers of the Twentieth Century’ held by Peter Hacker and David Wiggins in Trinity Term 1997. The second is a short talk that Strawson gave to the University College Undergraduate PPE group in 2003. I would like to thank Javier Kalhat and Thomas Strawson for their help with proof reading; Thomas Strawson again, for preparing the index; my co‐editor Michelle Montague for working through the whole book with me in preparing it for publication; and Elmandi du Toit and Sarah Parker of Oxford University Press for their expert guidance through the production process.
