Russell Daylight, What If Derrida Was Wrong about Saussure? (EUP, 2012)
Over the past 100 years there has been no more important reading of Saussurean linguistics than that of Jacques Derrida. This book is the first comprehensive analysis on the importance of that reading and what it means for cultural studies, philosophy, linguistics and literary theory today.
The main themes of the text include the originality of Saussure within the history of Western metaphysics, the relationship between speech and writing, and the intervention of time in structuralism.
