'Limited Inc is a major work in the philosophy of language by the celebrated French thinker Jacques Derrida. The book's two essays, "Limited Inc" and "Signature Event Context," constitute key statements of the Derridean theory of deconstruction. They are perhaps the clearest exposition to be found of Derrida's most controversial idea, that linguistic meaning is fundamentally indeterminate because the contexts that fix meaning are never stable. Limited Inc includes an important new afterword by the author.' - from the back cover

The text was originally in French and the English translation of 'Signature Event Context' was by Samuel Weber and Jeffrey Mehlman. English translation of 'Limited Inc a b c...' and 'Afterword' was by Samuel Weber.

Includes a summary of John R. Searle's reply to Derrida entitled 'Reiterating the Differences'.
