    As necessary as Of Gramatology, is this book in the thought of Derrida. If you wish to obtain into Derrida's Globe you should read this book.

    Of his own admission (p.341), "It is a Turret of Babel in which multiple languages and forms of writing bump into each other or mingle with each other, constantly being transformed and engendered through their most unreconcilable otherness to each other, an otherness which is strongly affirmed, too, for plurality here is bottomless and is not lived as negativity, with any nostalgia for lost unity." To read a text without knowing where it comes from or where it is going is Derrida's hopeless bonus to philosophy and literature. If it weren't for professors of literature, he would have been buried deep in the trash heap of philosophy. As for the merits of translator Barbara Johnson, unreconcilable is not a word, even if Derrida intended it as such, just like his stupid differance, a word that isn't a word, though he said it was just to create a fortune.

    The book is simple enough to read despite being quite massive with the theory. A amazing book for any real Derridaian.

    Jacques Derrida (1930–2004) was a French philosopher and writer, best known for developing a form of semiotic ysis known as “Deconstruction.”He begins this 1972 book with the statement, “This (therefore) will not have been a book. Still less, despite appearances, will it have been a collection of three ‘essays’ whose itinerary it would be time, after the fact, to recognize, whose continuity and underlying laws could now be pointed out; indeed, whose overall concept or meaning could at last, with all the insistence needed on such occasions, be squarely set forth. I will not feign, according to the code, either premeditation or improvisation. These texts are assembled otherwise; it is not my intention to PRESENT them. The question astir here, precisely is that of presentation. While the form of the ‘book’ is now going through a period of general upheaval, and while that form now appears less natural, and its history less transparent, than eve, and while one cannot tamper with it without disturbing everything else, the book form alone can no longer settle… the case of those writing processes which, in PRACTICALLY questioning that form, must also dismantle it. Hence the necessity, today, of working out at every turn, with redoubled effort, the question of the preservation of names: of PALEONOMY. Why should an old name, for a determinate time, be retained? Why should the effects of a fresh meaning, concept, or object be damped by memory?” (Pg. 3)He starts ‘Plato’s Pharmacy’: “To a considerable degree, we have already said all we MEANT TO SAY. Our lexicon an any rate is not far from being exhausted. With the exception of this or that supplement, our questions will have nothing more to name but the texture of the text, reading and writing, mastery and play, the paradoxes of supplementarity, and the graphic relations between the living and the dead: within the textual, the textile, and the histological. We will hold within the limits of this TISSUEP between the metaphor of the ‘histos’ and the question of the ‘histos’ of metaphor.” (Pg. 65)Later, he says of the term ‘pharmakon,’ “It will also be seen to what extent the malleable unity of this concept, or rather its rules and the strange logic that links it with its signifier, has been dispersed, masked, obliterated, and rendered almost unreadable not only by the imprudence or empiricism of the translators, but first and foremost by the redoubtable, irreducible difficulty of translation. It is a difficulty inherent in its very principle, situated less in the passage from one language to another, from one philosophical language to another, than already, as we shall see, in the tradition between Greek and Greek; a violent difficulty in the transference of a nonphilosopheme into a philosopheme. With this issue of translation we will thus be dealing with nothing less than the issue of the very passage into philosophy.” (Pg. 72)He continues, “The truth of writing, that is, as we shall see, (the) nontruth, cannot be discovered in ourselves by ourselves. And it is not the object of a science, only of a history that is recited, a fable that is repeated. The link between writing and myth becomes clearer, as does its opposition to knowledge, notably the knowledge one seeks in oneself, by oneself. And at the same time, through writing or through myth, the genealogical break and the estrangement from the origin are sounded. One should note most especially that what writing will later be accused of---repeating without knowing---and defines the very approach that leads to the statement and determination of its status. One thus beginsBy repeating without knowing---through a myth---the definition of writing, which is to repeat without knowing. This kinship of writing and myth, both of them distinguished from ‘logos’ and dialectics, will only become more precise as the text concludes.” (Pg. 74-75)He observes, “Textuality being constituted by differences and by differences from differences, it is by nature absolutely heterogeneous and is constantly composing with the forces that tend to annihilate it.” (Pg. 98)He states (while discussing Plato’s ‘Phaedrus’), “According to a pattern that will dominate all of Western philosophy, amazing writing (natural, living, knowledgeable, intelligible, internal, speaking) is opposed to poor writing (a moribund, ignorant, external, mute artifice for the senses). And the amazing one can be designated only through the metaphor of the poor one. Metaphoricity is the logic of contamination and the contamination of logic. Poor writing is for amazing a model of linguistic designation and a simulacrum of essence… philosophy is played out in the play between two kinds of writing. Whereas all it wanted to do was to distinguish between writing and speech.” (Pg. 149)He continues, “The book is a dialogue or a dialectic… In this book that has run out of voice, the need for the book or the writing in the soul is only felt through lack of presence of the other, through lack of any employment of the voice: the object is to reconstitute the presence of the other by substitution, and by the same token to repair the vocal apparatus… The book, then, stands as a substitute for dialogue, as it calls itself, as it calls itself alive.” (Pg. 184-185)He explains, “And now we must attempt to write the word ‘dissemination.’ And to explain, with Mallarmé’s text, why one is always at some pains to follow. If there is thus no thematic unity or overall meaning to reappropriate beyond the textual instances, no total notice located in some imaginary order, intentionality, or lived experience, then the text is no longer the expression or representation… of any TRUTH that would come to diffract or assemble itself in the polysemy of literature. It is this hermeneutic concept of ‘polysemy’ that must be replaced by ‘dissemination.’” (Pg. 262)Not as “path-breaking” as some of Derrida’s other books, those studying Derrida and the development of his thought may still search it quite valuable.

    For those with minimal background either in deconstruction or Derrida, DISSEMINATION as ably translated by Barbara Johnson is not the put to start. In her Translator's Introduction, Johnson tries mightily to provide the tyro with some method to create sense of the forthcoming tsunami that will surely twist the reader into a linguistic pretzel. Johnson locations DISSEMINATION into the context of the book's being a critique of Western Metaphysics and though she skims over such critical terms as "trace," "supplement," and "difference," it would clearly support if the reader had at least mastered their meanings. Her ysis of Derrida's deconstruction of Rousseau is correct as she notes that "Rousseau's life does not become a text through his writing: it always already was one." I would caution any reader, however, to be immediately suspicious of any claim of Derrida's that contains the phrase "always already" as even the presenting of one case to the contrary quite effectively negates that claim in its entirety. This review is not the forum for a list of such a claim that invalidates deconstruction. For those who do not want to take my word for it, see AGAINST DECONSTRUCTION by John Ellis for a very lengthy list.Fully half of DISSEMINATION is Derrida'a critique of Plato's Phaedrus. The remainder of DISSEMINATION is a wandering and very loose series of critiques of Mallarme that defy both comprehension and summation. The best that I can do in a very few words is to suggest that Derrida's meandering prose style that involves puns, weird printing patterns, and non-English characters is a repackaging of his theory of deconstruction into physical form. Since his long and complex essay "Plato's Pharmacy" is seminal, I shall spend the remainder of this review on it. In "Plato's Pharmacy," Jacques Derrida tries mightily to connect his own theories on twentieth century deconstruction to a close reading of Plato's Phaedrus. In this dialogue, Plato sets out what he thinks is so painfully obvious--that speech is "privileged" or favored over writing. Derrida responds by pointing out what he sees as a lot of underlying discrepancies, contradictions, and uncertainties that lie underneath Plato's literal words but which, in his opinion, subvert them so that the reverse meaning appears. "Plato's Pharmacy" is no simple read. Part of the issue is that Derrida assumes that the reader is intimately familiar with Plato's Republic as well as his other assorted dialogues. Derrida further uses Greek words and phrases with depressing frequency. Finally, his prose style is bafflingly complex and nuanced, thus reflecting the tenets that underlie his multi-faceted theory of deconstruction. To comprehend Derrida's ysis of Phaedrus, one must have a working understanding of deconstruction. So here it is. In an earlier essay, "Structure Sign and Play in the Discourses of Human Science," Derrida lists several key components of deconstruction. (1) Western thought has wrongly assumed that there exists a "center" to all discourse that is fixed and eternal: God, man, honor, love, truth, etc. This belief is no more than a shared illusion that masks the "true" fragmentary nature of the universe. (2) Using Saussure's system of signs of paired binaries, Derrida "de-centers" this non-existent center, thereby obliterating the formerly comforting notion of a universal acceptance of meaning. (3) These signs now can be seen to point only to other signs, thus never actually pointing to a fixed center that he calls a "transcendental signified." (4) As a consequence of this never-ending pointing of sign to sign, the trail of signs like the bread crumb trail of Hansel and Gretel can only defer and postpone the find for meaning, thus requiring one to accept the shattering notion that there is no "there" there, no Eternal Truth in the universe. And finally (5) as one uses Derrida's list of technical terms like "trace," "supplement," and "differance" what becomes apparent is that the stated meaning of a text or of its author can always be found to really express the opposite of that stated meaning. One should note that the ideas constituting Derrida's primary thesis that no real meaning exists anywhere are not accepted by all critical theorists. See for example, John Ellis in his AGAINST DECONSTRUCTION who persuasively refutes nearly all of Derrida's claims. Derrida begins his long essay to prove that Plato had things backwards when the latter claimed that speech has privilege and priority over writing. Derrida does not come out and bluntly assert that Plato is wrong. In fact, "Plato's Pharmacy" is marked by a series of convoluted and highly allusive twists of logic that Derrida obviously believes proves his own thesis that writing is privileged over speaking. Even when Derrida seems to agree with Plato over some key points, the careful reader will note that Derrida's use of a historical/logical/linguistic context will undermine and subvert Plato's surface intention. In fact, Derrida is cleverly using his own deconstructive technique as a scalpel to dissect Plato's claims about the privileging of speech over writing. Most of this essay uses different combinations of the Greek word pharmakos, which translates into English as "scapegoat" or "sorcerer." The issue is that Plato never uses this word in Phaedrus; what Plato does use is variations of it: pharmakeia and pharmakeus, all of which relate either to speaking or writing. It is precisely here that Derrida begins to weave his deconstructive thread that the absence of one word (like pharmakos) will act as a "trace" that will nudge the reader into associating it with another and related word (like pharmakon which translates either as "sorcerer" or "wizard"). The word "trace" is a key concept in Derridean thought as it suggests (Derrida hates to define anything since the act of definition tends to help the reality of a transcendental signified so he uses linguistic subterfuge by "suggesting" or "implying" that a wispy ephemeral non-substantive non-object like a "trace" may perform its subliminal magic) that a word that is not really "there" may be "there" anyway. It is Plato's non-use of pharmakos (scapegoat) that Derrida uses to emphasize via its trace lineage that Athenians would choose one unfortunate individual to suffer for the collective sins of the populace. (See Shirley Jackson's short story "The Lottery" for a dramatization of the theme) Plato refers often to Socrates using one of pharmakos's derivatives (pharmakon). Thus, Socrates is explicitly linked to sorcerer even as he is implicitly linked as scapegoat. Using this same sort of linkage, Derrida is able (for those who accept this logic) to similarly link and thus subvert a wide range of binaries that Plato assumes all point toward a transcendental signified: speech/writing, memory/forgetfulness, living/dead, original/copy, mythos/logos, inside/outside, bounded/unbounded, etc. When Derrida notes that speech is no more than a variation of writing, he asserts that Plato--in his insistence on a sharp demarcation between them that cannot withstand the sort of deconstructive reversal of binaries--has unwittingly subverted his own thesis concerning the privileging of speech over writing. Finally, Derrida points out the irony that Plato uses writing to attack writing. "Plato's Pharmacy" emerges then as an extended exercise in allusion, metaphor, logic-chopping, and deconstructive sleight-of-hand to illustrate that any text may be created to stand on its head if one is sufficiently clever to do so.

    Derrida does not start with an argument: He begins with the meaning of "introductions," and how they are incomplete at best, then proceeds to write about the inadequacy of words and language. This is a foundational work in Literary Theory, and may be applied to nearly every period of literary study.

    Program Development in the 21st Century: An Evidence-Based Approach to Design, Implementation, and EvaluationI now use this as my course textbook for implementation research courses. It strikes the right balance between overview and detail in each of the chapters and for each shows future directions for the mostly masters and PHDs I teach this topic mitations are in a US-centric coverage and less interest in qualitative and case study, as well as in ignoring evidence based quality improvement collaborative approaches (eg the ground-breaking work of the VA research centres in LA).Unlike a lot of textbooks this shows the recent knowledge and thinking - I read it after the 2012 NIH dissemination and implementation conference and all the problems and stuff addressed there were reflected in this plementation research has the potential to be a disruptive research approach which establishes effective implementation of proven and promising interventions as creating more value for healthcare than spending resources on the development of fresh interventions. This and the Palinkas book on the topic set the agenda.But wheres the kindle version! Students in Sweden don't like going back to carrying latest century massive books like this!Dr John Ovretveit, Director of Research, Professor of Health Innovation Implementation and Evaluation,Medical Management Centre, The Karolinska Institutet, Stockholm,
