Derrida is dead...long live deconstruction

While the great man is no more, there have been furious debates about the legacy that he's left behind. Terry Eagleton argues that the critics who've emerged after his death are 'English bone heads' who cringe at the term 'French philosopher' and who were bone-headed enough to deny him an honorary degree at Cambridge. You can find other obituaries here, here and here. And the politically minded have already begun to use his deconstruction techniques to prove what a philistine George Bush is. Umm...come on guys, you misunderestimate the poor chap...how many of YOU knew that the fish and the human being could co-exist peacefully?
