Jack Reynolds is a lecturer in philosophy at the University of Tasmania. He is the continental area editor of the Internet Encyclopedia of Philosophy and editor of Acumen Presss Major Movements in Modern Thought Series. He is the coeditor of Understanding Derrida and author of the forth-coming Understanding Existentialism.
While there have been many essays devoted to comparing the work of Maurice Merleau-Ponty with that of Jacques Derrida, there has been no sustained book-length treatment of these two French philosophers. Additionally, many of the essays presuppose an oppositional relationship between them, and between phenomenology and deconstruction more generally.Jack
