Derrida insisted that a distinct political undertone had pervaded his texts from the very beginning of his career. Nevertheless, the attempt to understand the political implications of notions of responsibility, reason of state , the other, decision, sovereignty , Europe, friendship, difference, faith, and so on, became much more marked from the early s on.
By , theorizing "democracy to come," and thinking the limitations of existing democracies, had become important concerns. Jean-Luc Nancy and Philippe Lacoue-Labarthe were among Derrida's first students in France and went on to become well-known and important philosophers in their own right. Despite their considerable differences of subject, and often also of a method, they continued their close interaction with each other and with Derrida, from the early s.
Derrida's most prominent friendship in intellectual life was with Paul de Man, which began with their meeting at Johns Hopkins University and continued until de Man's death in De Man provided a somewhat different approach to deconstruction, and his readings of literary and philosophical texts were crucial in the training of a generation of readers.
The memoir became cause for controversy, because shortly before Derrida published his piece, it had been discovered by the Belgian literary critic Ortwin de Graef that long before his academic career in the US, de Man had written almost two hundred essays in a pro-Nazi newspaper during the German occupation of Belgium , including several that were explicitly antisemitic. Derrida complicated the notion that it is possible to simply read de Man's later scholarship through the prism of these earlier political essays. Rather, any claims about de Man's work should be understood in relation to the entire body of his scholarship.
Critics of Derrida have argued that he minimizes the antisemitic character of de Man's writing. Some critics have found Derrida's treatment of this issue surprising, given that, for example, Derrida also spoke out against antisemitism and, in the s, broke with the Heidegger disciple Jean Beaufret over Beaufret's instances of antisemitism, about which Derrida and, after him, Maurice Blanchot expressed shock.
In an appendix added to the edition of his History of Madness , Foucault disputed Derrida's interpretation of his work, and accused Derrida of practicing "a historically well-determined little pedagogy [ A pedagogy which inversely gives to the voice of the masters that infinite sovereignty that allows it indefinitely to re-say the text. Many of Derrida's translators are esteemed thinkers in their own right. Derrida often worked in a collaborative arrangement, allowing his prolific output to be translated into English in a timely fashion.
Having started as a student of de Man, Gayatri Spivak took on the translation of Of Grammatology early in her career and has since revised it into a second edition. Alan Bass was responsible for several early translations; Bennington and Peggy Kamuf have continued to produce translations of his work for nearly twenty years. In recent years, a number of translations have appeared by Michael Naas also a Derrida scholar and Pascale-Anne Brault.
Bennington, Brault, Kamuf, Naas, Elizabeth Rottenberg, and David Wills are currently engaged in translating Derrida's previously unpublished seminars, which span from to With Bennington, Derrida undertook the challenge published as Jacques Derrida , an arrangement in which Bennington attempted to provide a systematic explication of Derrida's work called the "Derridabase" using the top two-thirds of every page, while Derrida was given the finished copy of every Bennington chapter and the bottom third of every page in which to show how deconstruction exceeded Bennington's account this was called the "Circumfession".
Derrida seems to have viewed Bennington in particular as a kind of rabbinical explicator, noting at the end of the "Applied Derrida" conference, held at the University of Luton in that: "everything has been said and, as usual, Geoff Bennington has said everything before I have even opened my mouth. I have the challenge of trying to be unpredictable after him, which is impossible Once again.
Derrida was familiar with the work of Marshall McLuhan , and since his early writings Of Grammatology , Speech and Phenomena , he speaks of language as a "medium,"  of phonetic writing as "the medium of the great metaphysical, scientific, technical, and economic adventure of the West.

He expressed his disagreement with McLuhan in regard to what Derrida called McLuhan's ideology about the end of writing. I think that there is an ideology in McLuhan's discourse that I don't agree with because he's an optimist as to the possibility of restoring an oral community which would get rid of the writing machines and so on. I think that's a very traditional myth which goes back to And instead of thinking that we are living at the end of writing, I think that in another sense we are living in the extension — the overwhelming extension — of writing.
At least in the new sense I don't mean the alphabetic writing down, but in the new sense of those writing machines that we're using now e. And this is writing too. As writing, communication, if one insists upon maintaining the word, is not the means of transport of sense, the exchange of intentions and meanings, the discourse and "communication of consciousnesses.
It is this questioned effect that I have elsewhere called logocentrism. Derrida had a direct impact on the theories and practices of influential architects Peter Eisenman and Bernard Tschumi towards the end of the twentieth century. For example, an image needs to be held by something, just as a mirror will hold a reflection.
Though Derrida addressed the American Philosophical Association on at least one occasion in ,  and was highly regarded by some contemporary philosophers like Richard Rorty , Alexander Nehamas ,  and Stanley Cavell , his work has been regarded by other analytic philosophers, such as John Searle and Willard Van Orman Quine ,  as pseudophilosophy or sophistry. Some analytic philosophers have in fact claimed, since at least the s, that Derrida's work is "not philosophy. In his Contingency, Irony, and Solidarity , Richard Rorty argues that Derrida especially in his book, The Post Card: From Socrates to Freud and Beyond , one section of which is an experiment in fiction purposefully uses words that cannot be defined e.
