About this video

Runtime: 7 mins

Steven Shakespeare discusses Jacques Derrida's 'Religious Motifs' and how he avoids making doctrinal commitment whilst recognising the 'otherness' of God.

Jacques Derrida was an Algerian-born French philosopher who founded 'deconstruction' as a way of critiquing traditional interpretations; for example of texts or institutions. He argued that linguistic explanation is created not given, and replaced the norms of language, ethics and aesthetics with a notion of meaning as expressed in context and relationship.
