Jacques Derrida

Derrida’s Ethics

French intellectual Jacques Derrida (1930–2004) was one of the most important contributors to the post-modern philosophical movement. He was also one of the most notoriously difficult philosophers to understand. In this second episode of a three-part series, Dr. Christopher Watkin helps us understand Derrida’s moral philosophy. Dr. Watkin is senior lecturer in French Studies at Monash University, Australia. Dr. Watkin received his MPhil and PhD from Cambridge. He has written multiple books on philosophy, including the Derrida installment of the Great Thinkers series, forthcoming with P&R Publishing.

  1. Great Stuff. Dr. Christopher Watkin is awesome. I’m really looking forward to his book. I quickly read a few others (Very Short Introduction, and Routledge Critical Thinkers), but would love to dig deeper with a book coming from a Reformed perspective.
