Jacques Derrida was a French philosopher, born in French Algeria. He developed the critical theory known as deconstruction and his work has been labeled as post-structuralism and associated with postmodern philosophy. His prolific output of more than 40 published books, together with essays and public speaking, has had a significant impact upon the humanities, particularly on literary theory and continental philosophy. Perhaps Derrida's most quoted and famous assertion, which appears in an essay on Rousseau in his highly influential Of Grammatology (1967), is the statement that "there is nothing outside the text" (il n'y a pas de hors-texte), meaning that there is nothing outside context. Critics of Derrida have countless times quoted it as a slogan to characterize and stigmatize deconstruction.
