Jacques Derrida (1930-2004) is one of the best known 20th century philosophers and is regarded as the founder of the Deconstruction movement. His work continues to be hugely influential across the humanities and social sciences and his impact on philosophy and literary criticism is unparalleled.

First published in 1972, Dissemination contains three of Derrida's most central and seminal works- 'Plato's Pharmacy', 'The Double Session' and 'Dissemination'. The essays present a re-evaluation of the logic of meaning and the function of writing in Western discourse and explore the relationship and interplay between language, literature and philosophy. The text includes a substantial introduction and additional notes on the text by Barbara Johnson.
