Princeton University har förvärvat Jacques Derridas personliga bibliotek:

”Derridas library, consisting of about 13,800 published books and other materials, represents a lifetime of reading. But for Derrida, the act of reading was not a passive process: he engaged — even grappled — with what he read, covering pages with notes and cross-references, inserting other handwritten materials, quoting and adapting what he read into what he wrote. As Derrida himself said in an interview later in his life, his books bear ‘traces of the violence of pencil strokes, exclamation points, arrows and underlining.'”
