"Seeing / Hearing / Speaking'" DVD, which I have enjoyed very much indeed. It is, I think, a true masterpiece. .. because through your DVD one becomes able to grasp not only the theoretical or intellectual aspect of your relationship with Derrida's thought, but the ' vertigo' (as Allison says) of the 'deconstruction' (to use Derrida's jargon) of your own identity, i. e. a feeling, not an abstraction: a pre- or proto-theoretical full way of understanding and of living, i. e. an intuition of the 'difference' or 'differance' in Derrida's sense." -- Daniel Charles, author of "John Cage" This is a Region 2 DVD
