Jacques Derrida’s De la Grammatologie (1967), which was translated into English as Of Grammatology (1976), is one of the most sustained reflections on the way ‘Western‘ or ‘European’ concepts of writing have shaped attitudes to language and culture. This is particularly clear if you read it with I. J. Gelb‘s A Study of Writing: The Foundations of Grammatology (1952; revised ed, 1963), to which it was partly a response. Derrida was also the first major European-trained philosopher to think on the edge of Europe and its intellectual traditions.
