Through a close engagement with some key thinkers, Norris argues that deconstruction is part of the "unfinished project of modernity." a project whose interest and values it upholds by continuing to question them in a spirit of enlightened self-critical inquiry.
"A tour de force that reclaims Derrida from the legions of unselfconscious parodists of Derridean style. The range of Norris's reference is truly impressive, from philosophy, to politics, to science, and his repositioning of deconstruction as part of the unfinished project of modernity is as persuasive as it is innovative." -- John Drakakis
