This chapter discusses the nature of Jacques Derrida's reputation. One thing that all readers are most likely to agree upon is that Derrida is a very difficult writer. He is an admired figure in both the French and the American academic worlds. The discussions in this chapter show that Derrida is a man whose dominance in critical theory is inescapable.
