Review: Derrida: A Very Short Introduction

derrida

Derrida: A Very Short Introduction by Simon Glendinning My rating: 3 of 5 stars The philosophy of Jacques Derrida keeps cropping up on my reading in Translation Studies. I’m getting a vague idea of deconstruction but really need to tackle the works of the man himself to truly understand his philosophy. I thought I’d try this short introduction as a taster to better familiarise myself with his ideas. I think that Derrida is slightly more complex and difficult to understand than more traditional philosophers. He gathers poles of thought within the philosophical movement. It seems that either you love or hate Derrida. I think the fundamental precept of Deconstruction is to reevaluate one’s ideals, to tear apart more traditional modes of thinking and to analyse a subject from a completely different, new perspective. This introduction left me, at times, feeling as though I was beginning to understand Derrida, yet at other times things went flying over my head and removed what knowledge I thought I had gained. I think the Derrida work on language is more accessible and I look forward to tackling ‘On Grammatology’. His work with words and language seems more logical and accurate and easier to digest than some of the less direct musings on philosophy or the nature of animals. From reading this book I can see why some people could easily dismiss Derrida. His ideas do provoke strong reactions and nowhere more so can this be seen than the reaction to his honorary degree at Cambridge University. think that what is certain about Derrida was that he was a true intellectual, a clever man with original ideas, who wasn’t afraid of ruffling the feathers of the established ways. The twentieth century was an era of vast change and there is no reason why new ways of dissecting the world should not arise. I anticipate building a deeper relationship with Derridean philosophy once I enter into his actual works. This introduction was enlightening in a sense but can be deconstructed into equally maintaining an illusion of confusion about this complicated man. View all my reviews

Bringing Down The House

A journey through house, from disco and deep through to upfront prog and breakbeat. This is a mix I was excited to do as I managed to fit in three of my own productions (a bootleg, a remix and an original), also a song by Tricia Lee Kelshall, the vocalist I manage. The mixing is back to normal two decks as I feel that sometimes you lose the flavour of a set by overcomplicating things. Turn up your speakers and Bring Down The House! :::TRACKLISTING::: 1. Beth Ditto – Open Heart Surgery (Original Mix) [Deconstruction] 2. Ned Rise – Machination (Original Mix) [FLASH] 3. Bassfort – Last Night (Original Mix) [Freerange Records] 4.

DJ Set 07 Park It In The Club With No Name

Listen to Wez G – Park It In The Club With No Name byWez G on hearthis.at    Well, Dion, Here is your nineties house. Classics are hard to define. bearing in mind my age means that I missed the really early stuff, I tried to include on this mix lots of stuff from when the Haçienda was still open and also in the fairly vocal style of Graeme Park. I’ll let rip with any other special requests, so listeners please give feedback. Please excuse the record jumps on the mix as some of the tunes are quite old. i didn’t think the skips harmed the set that much so I uploaded it anyway… Enough banter.

Snake In My Head

DJ Set 05 Snake In My Head

Listen to Wez G – Snake In My Head byWez G on hearthis.at    About 18 months ago I was walking along the street in my local village in South Wales when I felt a large snake’s skull on the back of my head. I have occasional Shamanic experiences. I couldn’t get the thing off me and went on a bit of a mad journey where I went off several huge cliffs into some serpent nests and in a shamanic state, to help me out, I linked up with some other medecine men across the globe. I ended upin an African tribal village where they chopped the head off the snake but the guy who did it warned me that the thing would stay with me for a while. So I thought I’d revert to the beat of the drum and try and drive the damn thing out with a nice session on the wheels of steel. Have a listen and do battle with the reptile with me. Whack it with a stick or something… (By the way – WEZ G IS NUTS!) But I speak the truth, honestly!!! In my world it never gets dark… :::TRACKLISTING::: 1. Harmonix – Landslide (Way Out West Mix) [Deconstruction] 2. Distant Fragment – Chasing Memories (Original Mix) [Hunya Munya Records] 3. Sasha – Mongoose (Original Mix) [White] 4.
