Quote of the day II

Allan Bloom (around the 8:00 mark):
Deconstructionism, in the simplest sense, is a circus act.

FLG couldn't help but picture Jacques Derrida as a clown and laugh at the image.

I always thought Derrida was just amusing himself. (I remember having read some quotes of his that seem to support this). It's the next wave of people like Paul de Man who "legitimized" deconstructionism in the Academy(and, in his case, conveniently used it to paper over his collaboration with the Nazis) who really irk me.
