Another one bites the dust...

So Derrida follows hot(?) on Said's heels. Perhaps that great second generation of postwar philosophers has burnt itself out. I can't see Hobsbawm kicking the bucket just yet though... It seems fitting that no two obituaries carry the same reading of Derrida's "theories". Still, at least the social sciences might at last turn their eye to Ricoeur.
