Deconstructive Blogging



From "Tympan", Margins of Philosophy, Jacques Derrida (Marges de la Philosophie, translated by Alan Bass). Chicago Press, 1981.


[QUOTE from Derrida]

in order to teach them
"to hear with their eyes" too

[snip]

the "labyrinthic vertigo"
[of the text]

[snip]

...as long as even the philosophical
concept of mastery will not have
been destroyed, all the liberties
one claims to take with the
philosophical order will remain
activated a tergo by
miscontrued philosophical machines,
according to denegation or precipitation,
ignorance or stupidity....

[snip]

Certainly one will never prove
philosophically that one has to
transform a given situtation
and proceed to an effective
deconstruction
in order to
leave irreversible marks....

[snip]

...these ten writings in fact
ask the question of the margin.

Gnawing away at the border
which would make this question
into a particular case, they are to
blur the line which separates
a text from its controlled margin....

[snip]

...beyond the philosophical text
there is not a blank, virgin, empty
margin, but another text, a weave
of differences of forces without
any present center of reference...
everything...said not to be
written in books...

[snip]

univocal rigidity or regulated polysemia...

[snip]

To write otherwise...

[snip]

To eat the margin...

[snip]
