Of Grammatology, Jacques Derrida
American paperback edition of Derrida's landmark work, inscribed by the author to the half-title. In On Grammatology Derrida originated the idea of deconstruction and challenged the traditional notion that speech is superior to writing. Derrida argued that writing is not simply a secondary representation of speech, but a fundamental means of communication that shapes our understanding of language and reality. A groundbreaking work, scarce with a signature.
