Deconstructing France's Philosophers

(They have deserved it for some time…)

In La philosophie cannibale (La théorie du mensonge, de la mutilation, ou l'appropriation totalitaire chez Derrida, Deleuze, Foucault, Lyotard), Lucien Oulahbib breaks more than a few taboos by taking on France's most revered people — les philosophes — reminding us of such savorous things as the fact that Michel Foucault supported the Ayatollah Khomeiny or that Jacques Derrida, in his infinite wisdom, realized that the culprits behind 9-11 were none other than… the Americans.

Being the "masters of suspicion" that they are, the "philosophers" (sic) wanting to deconstruct everything have nothing less than a cannibalistic view of the world.
