Child and the Curriculum: The School and Society by John Dewey

The English version of Dissemination [is] an able translation by Barbara Johnson . . . . Derridas central contention is that language is haunted by dispersal, absence, loss, the risk of unmeaning, a risk which is starkly embodied in all writing. The distinction between philosophy and literature therefore becomes of secondary importance. Philosophy vainly attempts to control the irrecoverable dissemination of its own meaning, it strives against the grain of language to offer a sober revelation of truth. Literature on the other hand flaunts its own meretriciousness, abandons itself to the Dionysiac play of language. In Dissemination more than any previous work Derrida joins in the revelry, weaving a complex pattern of puns, verbal echoes and allusions, intended to deconstruct both the pretension of criticism to tell the truth about literature, and the pretension of philosophy to the literature of truth. Peter Dews, New Statesman
