`This book is a gift precisely in the Derridean sense described within it. Its gift is that it is a tour de force. The book leads its reader on a profound and clear, even if complex, exploratory voyage into and out of the maze of Jacques Derrida's web of deconstructive thought. While making this trip, the book weaves a radical argument against the notion that philosophical logic transcends mythic qualities of understanding. It shows compellingly that philosophy's knowledge of truth is inescapably embedded in myth.'
