Jacques Derrida in the News

For fun and laughs, I like to search "Jacques Derrida" in the Google News search engine to see if the posthumous philosopher has made any recent headlines.

I found something today!

He is referenced in a New York Observer article by Jonathan Liu on architecture and performativity (07/12/2011):

The talk about architecture as performance must conjure up the 1980s and deconstruction:
Meanwhile, Peter Eisenman spent the 1980s conceptualizing deconstructivist architecture with Jacques Derrida and the naughties building a stadium for the Arizona Cardinals.
Does this stadium look "deconstructed" to you?

Lemme know what you think in the comments below.

    You know, unless they were deconstructing deconstruction while they were constructing the stadium, and the financial backers standing over their shoulder, making mandatory suggestions. I wonder if there are multiple blueprints for this thing, and if some of it's earlier pre-carnations were a bit more radical.

    It's also interesting how many places intellectual celebrity can put it's hands.
