  2. Geoffrey Bennington (2012). Rigor; or, Stupid Uselessness. Southern Journal of Philosophy 50 (s1):20-38.
    In his seminars on the death penalty, Derrida consistently describes Kant's arguments in favor of capital punishment as “rigorous” and explicitly relates that rigor to the mechanisms of execution and the subsequent rigor mortis of the corpse. ‘Rigor’ has also often been a contested term in descriptions of deconstruction: different commentators have either deplored or celebrated the presence or the absence of rigor in Derrida's work. Derrida himself uses the term a good deal throughout his career, usually in a positive (...)

  8. Geoffrey Bennington (2008). Handshake. Derrida Today 1 (2):167-184.
    How might Derrida be said to greet Jean-Luc Nancy in Le Toucher? What kind of handshake does he offer? Derrida explicitly mentions the handshake at the very centre of his book, in the tangent devoted to Merleau-Ponty. A reading of this moment reveals an exemplary case of what happens when Derrida reads apparently ‘fraternal’ texts, and opens up further levels of difference. What then if we consider Nancy's response to Derrida, when the recipient of the handshake shakes back? By examining (...)

    Reflecting on the fall or failure of sovereignty, this essay considers Derrida’s recent work under the heading of auto-immunity, and develops some consequences of that work, first of all in the political sphere (especially around democracy), but also some more general consequences around conceptuality itself.

  16. Geoffrey Bennington (2000). Interrupting Derrida. Routledge.
    Interrupting Derrida is a major new work by Geoffrey Bennington, internationally renowned Derrida scholar and translator of Derrida's work. This bold and provocative collection of essays surveys key themes in work by and about Derrida. Presenting a compelling challenge to influential readings of Derrida that have emerged from both the philosophical and literary traditions, Bennington shows how Derrida's work "interrupts" metaphysics, not by redefining philosophy but by rendering it indefinite. Arguing that we can fruitfully interrupt Derrida himself, Bennington offers us (...)

    Recent developments in literary theory, such as structuralism and deconstruction, have come under attack for neglecting history, while historically-based approaches have been criticized for failing to take account of the problems inherent in their methodological foundations. This collection of essays is unique in that it focuses on the relation between post-structuralism and historical (especially Marxist) literary theory and criticism. The volume includes a deconstructive reading of Marx, essays that relate history to the philosophical and institutional context, and a number of (...)
