    About "Jacques Derrida Eric Prenowitz"

      • Jacques Derrida Eric Prenowitz

        Jacques Derrida was the founder of deconstruction, a way of criticizing not only both literary and philosophical texts but also political institutions Although Derrida at times expressed regret concerning the fate of the word deconstruction, its popularity indicates the wide ranging influence of his thought, in philosophy, in literary criticism and theory, in art and, in particular, architectural theory, and in political theory Indeed, Derrida s fame nearly reached the status of a media star, with hundreds of people filling auditoriums to hear him speak, with films and televisions programs devoted to him, with countless books and articles devoted to his thinking Beside critique, Derridean deconstruction consists in an attempt to re conceive the difference that divides self reflection or self consciousness But even than the re conception of difference, and perhaps importantly, deconstruction works towards preventing the worst violence It attempts to render justice Indeed, deconstruction is relentless in this pursuit since justice is impossible to achieve.


    1. My first (and likely last) Derrida, this hodgepodge of contradictory intellectual garbage loosely addresses the theme of the archive in the Freudian tradition. I say loosely, because Derrida's treatment of archival ideas is either incorrect or incomprehensible - aside from some apt discussion of etymology, it's obvious that he has no idea what an archive is, metaphorically or otherwise. I can't speak to the accuracy of his comments on Freud, but having immersed myself in actual archival theory a [...]

    2. A lot of the reading I've been doing lately about archives has included a citation to this.cially some of the essays I really liked in Controlling the Pastwhich meant, of course, I *had* to read it.It is a short book, so it's a quick read. I had some exposure to the technique of deconstruction back in my undergrad days, so I was passingly familiar with Derrida. But even with this background knowledge I must admit I had to let quite a bit of Archive Fever wash over me. The historical context for [...]

    3. Lotsa preliminary outworks here, which is fitting, considering that this text concerns the significance of the arche.Opening section with no subtitleArche—to commence and to order, an ontological principle and a nomological principle. Archive as derived from Greek arkheion, “initially a house, a domicile, an address, the residence of the superior magistrates, the archons, those who commanded” and whereat “the official documents are filed,” giving the archons “hermeneutic right and co [...]

    4. Yup, that's right I finished the big D. Not nearly as much fun as Foucault, but still as rewarding when you realize you understood a whole sentence or two.

    5. Mi primer baile con Jacques Derrida y creo no haberle pisado (excesivamente) los pies.En el proceso de deconstruir el concepto de archivo (de archivo freudiano, del archivo del psicoanálisis, particularmente) entrega varios focos de análisis útiles por fuera del corpus de su propio ejercicio ensayístico: -el ejercicio de poder tras el archivo y la figura del arconte como personalización de ese poder (y, por tanto, como válido intérprete, como agente autorizado).-la idea del cuerpo como do [...]

    6. c'mon dude, level with me here—you wrote all them post-Yale, post-deconstruction books on the can right? Freud's foreskin? Damn man; make me a ladyboy necklace amirite?!!?the old dogs of metaphysics of presence is tight, etymology too [watch for Arkhonz!!!?], always. but all this quasi-Hebraic theology belongs back on that acid planet with Deleuze and Guattari, year ZERO faciality flying from the Pharaoh, Shiiit. not that Yerushalmi got it wrong or nothing with Moses and Monotheism but that fo [...]

    7. Derrida occupies a paradoxical position for me: I like his conclusions but dislike his language-intensive methods. Few things seem as interesting but ultimately useless as etymology, and he (predictably) begins this book with an etymology (or "deconstruction" if you must) of the word "archive." Repeated puns and word tricks abound, it all feels very circular, and Derrida makes a habit of pointing out the things he won't have time to address, will address elsewhere, has addressed elsewhere, such [...]

    8. I grudgingly ended up liking this, despite all the mentions of Freud's circumcision. Ended up getting into the ghosts in the archive and obsession soi guess it was v much my jam.

    9. Deeply interested in archives, I enjoyed Derrida's decomposition of the "archive" into a collection of objects which is at once complete and incomplete- to find things within the the archive, we resort to titles. Titles represent bodies of knowledge, but are not full works in themselves (like citations upon which scholarly texts are built). At any given time one can know a full text, or know the archive (through a condensed representation of titles.) Derrida uses this organizational principle to [...]

    10. "It is to have a compulsive, repetitive, and nostalgic desire for the archive, an irrepressibledesire to return to the origin, a homesickness, a nostalgia for the return to the most archaicplace of absolute commencement. No desire, no passion, no drive, no compulsion, indeedno repetition compulsion, no "mal-de" can arise for a person who is not already, in oneway or another, en mal d'archive. Now the principle of the internal division of theFreudian gesture, and thus of the Freudian concept of t [...]

    11. This is a dense but brilliant book. It's only 111 pages in my edition but you have to concentrate, as Derrida contemplates on archives, time, Judaism and Jewishness, Sigmund Freud, psychoanalysis There's a lot of meat and potatoes in this book!

    12. i get a little tired of how derrida writes, looping around in his thoughts, but then at other times i find it nutritious. but man, what a subject, freud is endlessly fascinating, and scary.

    13. I found this to be an immensely boring read, but it at least it helped me glean some understanding of what archives are and what they can be. I wish Derrida, with all his talk about deconstruction, could just . . . speak to communicate, not confabulate? Might be an issue with the translation from French to English, might be that I somehow cannot grasp the way his mind works, might he is onanistic . . . I wonder if these ideas can dip into ideas of New Historicism: ART AND HISTORY ARE STUCK IN AN [...]

    14. Disclaimer: For this book, you must be well-versed in Freud as well as aware of Yosef Hayim Yerushalmi and Jacques Derrida's previous works. I am not.Initially, I spent my time flipping back and forth between pages, googling Freud, Yerushalmi and Derrida and reading extracts of their works. But I still found many passages of this book completely meaningless. It's a frustrating feeling when you just can't "get" at the meaning of a work which has been cited by so many others. There are moments of [...]

    15. I finished this book sitting in a Barnes & Noble in Delaware while visiting my parents. I had an iced coffee in one hand and my head in the other. I like Derrida, but I always feels a vast, groaning insufficiency when I read him. When I meet people who seem to intuitively "get" him, I'm at once envious and suspicious. I want to call bullshit. At the same time, I kind of want to be their supplement. 'Archive Fever' is a cool one if, like me, you're interested in the traces of differance in Fr [...]

    16. Derrida poses many good ideas about the archive. I had to read this for a class about archiving a "queer" past and it was, of course, seminal to the class discussion. However, as is expected for Derrida, it was such a challenge to get through, willing myself to sit down and process all of the information was incredibly difficult; at some points I was convinced I wasn't reading in English. The content becomes even more impressive when one think about the fact that this was a lecture.Derrida was u [...]

    17. Sometimes a pseudo-Freudian notion: Of all the books by French theory types that I own and have never read, I consider most often picking this one up, not because the topic--as I understand it from the dust jacket and initial pages--particularly interests me, but simply because it is one of the few gifts that my father ever gave me that was characterized by an attempt to take into account my (then) current interests. So I feel a bit guilty that I never got more than a few pages in, but not--for [...]

    18. Reading this book immediately before visiting Farkasréti Temető made a "world" of difference. (Vide Rams in Sovereignties in Question: The Poetics of Paul Celan.) "There is no archive without a place of consignation, without a tech­nique of repetition, and without a certain exteriority. No archive with­ out outside." (p. 11)

    19. Poor kindle copyThis kindle version of Derrida's Archive Fever is basically just a PDF file inserted into the kindle format. It's unreadable because of the file formatting and also because it's upside down. The actual pages aren't even in the right direction.Save your time and pick up the print version.

    20. I would have given this text more stars, if not for the fact that I study historical fiction. The majority of Derrida's main ideas on the archive resemble concepts already discussed by those who have written on the historical genre, and who present and state these concepts more clearly, without references to Freud or using phallocentric ideas and language.

    21. I used to love wordy french philosophy. I think it's because I thought I was cool. Now I like people to tell it to me straight, like a pear cider made from one hundred percent pear. I read the introduction which was what I needed to read at the time. Maybe I'll give it a read further into my MFA year. Maybe I'll just read someone else citing it.

    22. I read this back in 1998 when I first entered my Philosophy program. It as a true hazing experience, but now that e-mail and other e-mediums have shown up, JD's Deconstruction of the Arkhe of e-mail is even more timely.

    23. Oh goodness guys, I probably really understood only one sentence out of every hundred in this book. Not only does Derrida expect to you already be well-versed in Freud, but he also expects you to be intimately familiar with his previous work. I am an expert in neither.

    24. Some interesting ideas, especially on the future orientation of the archive. Vast swathes are verbose and difficult to get through, although I'm sure I could have gotten a lot more out of it if I was familiar with Freud.

    25. Similar to other readings I've done of Derrida this text is more a utility than anything else, a means to an end, a help. My rating is based on how it compliments my research and not so much on the quality of the writing.
