Studenteropgave: Semesterprojekt


This paper aims to discover to what extent the philosopher Jacques Derrida is present in the novel The Broom of the System by David Foster Wallace. It will explore key themes from the writing and philosophy of Jacques Derrida as they are relevant to the novel. Having gained an understanding of the thought being applied in interpreting the novel, we will move on to explore aspects of the work from the perspective of deconstruction, of which Derrida was a key figure.
