Summary Limited Inc is a major work in the philosophy of language by the celebrated French thinker Jacques Derrida. The book's two essays constitute key statements of the Derridiean theory of deconstruction. They are perhaps the clearest exposition to be found of Derrida's most controversial idea, that linguistic meaning is fundamentally indeterminate because the contexts which fix meaning are never stable
