Did you catch the All in the Mind program called "Deconstructing Derrida"? I made a recording of the show if you can't be bothered reading the transcript. One of the guests is the same Dr Jack Reynolds.

That would be excellent... I prefer to get my input through my ears where possible, so it would be appreciated. I know almost nothing about Derrida, except that everyone seems to hold him in high regard.

Cheers,
