Jacques Derrida is a double book made by Derrida himself and Bennington in which the latter presents an analytic account of the former's work in the upper portion of each page ('Derridabase'), which Derrida then attempts to disrupt or outflank in the lower portion ('Circumfession').
- Fernanda Bernardo: Fernanda Bernardo is an associate professor at the University of Coimbra (Portugal), who has been developing her researches on the relations of deconstruction with ethics and politics.

- Harold Bloom: Bloom is the Sterling Professor of the Humanities at Yale University and Berg Professor of English and American Literature at New York University. In 1979, Bloom contributed to the influential Deconstruction and Criticism, a foundational text for the Yale School of deconstruction. Later, in a 1983 interview with Robert Moynihan, Bloom said, "What I think I have in common with the school of deconstruction is the mode of negative thinking or negative awareness, in the technical, philosophical sense of the negative, but which comes to me through negative theology...There is no escape, there is simply the given, and there is nothing that we can do." In accordance, Slavoj Žižek has identified the mid-to-late 1980s as the period when Derrida's deconstruction shifted from a radical negative theology to a Kantian idealism. In 1989, Bloom eschewed any identification with the Yale School's technical, methodological approach to literary criticism. He stated that "there is no method except yourself" and observed that deconstruction as a mode of thought is best understood as unique to Derrida. In a 2003 interview, Bloom recalled that in his past he found himself "fighting" deconstructionists. In the same interview, he stated that the deconstructionists were his friends and that what interests him in language is the Absolute, a notion he shares with Yale School deconstructionists and the negative theology of kabbalists.
