Samuel Weber has proved to be so influential to so many for so long. He owes partly to the singular position he holds in relation to the domains of literary theory and continental philosophy. Jacques Derrida once confirmed that within such fields, Weber's “remarkable” and “inaugural” texts have been especially important to the deconstructive tradition. Weber played a significant role in the process of translation and publication that saw deconstruction come to prominence in the United States. He is the one who translated Derrida's “Signature Event Context” (1977) and Limited Inc. (1988). But the continuing interest and significance of Weber's work is no doubt also due in large part to his ability to reactivate and transform the legacy of literary and philosophical enquiry and by exposing the deconstructive tradition to contemporary questions in the arenas of media, technology, culture, and politics.

Keywords:   Samuel Weber, deconstructive tradition, media, Jacques Derrida, continental philosophy, literary theory, technology, culture, politics
