Jacques Derrida: The Philosophical Maradona


“The seminal French philosopher and writer Jacques Derrida loved football. He played the game throughout his teenage years, after all. He admitted, during an interview in 1991, that his abiding dream was ‘becoming a professional footballer’ and, more crucially, that his philosophy and thought was inspired by football. The idea that Derrida’s philosophical theory of deconstruction was influenced by football has been supported and analysed by academics.” In Bed With Maradona
