Counter Jacques Derrida's theory of deconstruction has commonly been pictured as a direct attack against philosophy and as a celebration of God's death. Yet almost as frequently, it has been criticised as a displaced negative theology, a quest for deep truth beyond all the categories of being and non-being. In this book, Kevin Hart argues that neither view is correct. Deconstruction, in Dr Hart's analysis, seeks a vantage point from which metaphysics is seen to be structured by alterity rather than identity.
