Abstract: Although primarily a philosopher Derrida, but his critics in contemporary
literary theory but the impact is greater than philosophers. Although in many ways,
Marxism and Derrida's deconstruction theory more than the difference
between the same, but at least the following aspects of Derrida and Western Marxists
hold the same or similar views: the relativity of truth and practice sex, this is
especially close to Marxist dialectical materialism; Marxism can have different forms,
in particular, especially in the modern era; Marxism in contemporary humanities and
social sciences is still a huge influence. In particular, it should be noted that in Eastern
Europe collapsed and the resulting disintegration of the socialist camp, the original
group of left-wing intellectuals to Marxism disappointed temporary setback, and
Derrida, and Jameson is the same, still firmly believe that Marxism does not end,
because it has cracked into pieces, infiltrated, including literary theory, including the
areas of Humanities and Social Sciences. From a literary theory and cultural criticism
to examine the perspective of Derrida's academic thought, should be
recognized that Derrida's thinking more the United States of literary theory
accepted by critics. As Derrida's death, contemporary literary theory and
cultural     criticism      into    a    "Houdelida          era"       or
"post-theoretical age." Although deconstruction has long
recession tide, but some of the key principles of deconstruction has infiltrated the
human sciences related fields to become a classic criticism of the principles and
methods. Deconstruction and Marxism are both in the same time there are a lot of
discord in common, which is especially reflected in Derrida's monograph,
"Specters of Marx", in this book, Derrida attempts in traditional
and contemporary, and East and West between Marxism and deconstruction found
some things in common. In Derrida's own recognition and direct
participation of deconstruction in the United States criticized the industry for the last
century, a time evolution of the most influential 70,80 a large number of school
assessment, a number of critics, deconstruction, new historicism and post-critic
colonial critics had succeeded in Marxism and Deconstruction rubbing as a whole, in
criticizing the practice, have made outstanding achievements.

Key words: Marxism Specters of Marx Derrida Deconstruction Deconstruction
Indeed, a comprehensive in-depth study of Marxism and deconstruction of the
relationship may need to specifically discuss the author, because this is the philosophy
of both extensive and profound, it needs more in-depth study and exploration can in
some respects from two kinds of Ji has in common the same time do more
diametrically opposed to some abstract system of thought with the general regularities.
This article intends to criticism from the perspective of literary theory to compare the
two theories of ideology. Maybe people will think that Jacques Derrida (Jacques
Derrida, 1930-2004) as the founder of deconstruction, which was identified as
"nihilism" in Deconstruction and Marxism natural to have a
noble ideals and lofty goals of the theory of revolution out of tune. Indeed,
deconstruction once appeared, it was stressed from the history of Marxist concepts
such as the fierce criticism of contemporary theorists, including the most intense
criticism of Terry Eagleton. Later, the U.S. neo-Marxist theorist Fredric Jameson has
also continued with a variety of structuralism and post-structuralist theory which
makes the controversy in his own theoretical system was gradually improved. It
should be said, more and Jameson, including deconstruction, including a variety of
postmodern theory debate, the more able to confront these theories with each other to
find some common things. Derrida is also the case, especially into the later years, he
thought in a number of issues have been closer to the basic position of Marxism, and
can make their own unique views on the contemporary situation. Indeed, Derrida has
been active until his death in both in Europe and the United States mainland thinkers
and college classroom, continue to promote his mind as to deconstruct the fixed of
Cultural Criticism. Obviously, he's close reading of literary texts and
critical practice has become a unique insight into the legacy of contemporary literary
theory criticism, and even in today's "Houdelida era"
or "post-theoretical age", his theory will remain and Marxism,
as Western literature on the contemporary cultural criticism and critical theory itself
had important effects. This article intends to explore from the following three aspects
of Marxist theory and the deconstruction phase discord not only in common the same
time there are complex relationships.

Marxist approach and explore

As we all know, in a variety of poststructuralist / postmodern theory,
Derrida's deconstruction created a central position, and because of his
theory and Foucault's History of deconstruction theory into the
international discussion of postmodernism, which makes This was originally limited
to North American literary and cultural critics contend the theory of speculation into
the metaphysical level, and in contemporary human thought had a revolutionary
impact. After deconstruction as a philosophical trend, the traditional philosophy is
certainly a shock, it accelerated in the objective end of the traditional philosophy and
literature of liberation. Derrida's writing style as much closer to the style of
literary criticism, literary theory and therefore it is the impact of critics even more
than in the philosophical circles of influence. Once deconstruction of literary theory,
Western Marxism to be a strong reaction and criticism. In the "Introduction
to Literary Theory," in Terry Eagleton will include Derrida's
deconstruction theory of all structures, including the theory of Marxist thought after
all into the "post-structuralism," the banner down and examine
them with May 1968 crisis mortality associated. He believes that
"post-structuralism is the excitement and disillusionment, liberation and
overspending, carnival and catastrophe, ie, 1968, the Hun He one of the product.
Poststructuralist Jiran structure of state power can not be broken, so we found it
possible to subvert the language structure. "one can not help but
reminiscent of some of the former British Romantic poet of the same in the attitude of
the French bourgeois revolution: the revolution represented by Byron romantic always
supported the French Revolution, even after the failure of the Revolution They
establish a bourgeois republic is not totally devoid of confidence; and ideological
conservative Wordsworth is not, when the French Revolution in the rising period of
time, the romantic passion of the young poet with great enthusiasm far far behind
involved in the English Channel to the center of the revolution, to the French
Revolution to wholeheartedly support. But before long, when the killings occurred
during the revolution innocent, bloody scenes and the scenes of the revolution when
frustrated, can not help but feel disappointed Wordsworth. In extreme pain, he came
to the mountains of childhood, trying to identify and communicate with nature to
achieve spiritual liberation. No doubt, William Wordsworth and so was called
"negative romanticism" poet's action was the leftist
literary historians and researchers of intense criticism. Clearly, here, Eagleton, and
others will be Derrida digestion of language structure than to a political escape, to
some extent is indeed pertinent.

We look back on this history is not difficult to find, on the occasion of frustration in
the May storm, some former Marxist, and respect for Mao Zedong Thought of the
French left-wing intellectuals have pulled out of communism and left-wing camp,
some of them even converted into an with the opportunistic tendencies of the
post-structuralist. It should be recognized that Derrida, in essence, is a left-wing

he is a "liberal tendencies and t
