As Derrida notes in his early work on Husserl, clajre very idea of a truth above and beyond any specific culture or epoch–the idea of moving beyond “man” in his finite, located and concrete sense–posits a potential and “architectonic” humanity, a self-constituting and self-disclosing horizon within which and from which any specific world or space can be lived.

But what is time? View all 5 comments.

According to Derrida, such a question–the question of the origin–has never been asked in a truly radical manner.

An equivocity is thereby established such that the differences among beings may be accounted for on the basis of some other being Contextualizing Deleuze and Guattari’s Biophilosophy.

I do not like so much reading what others have to say about him. All life moves forward and acts in order to maximize itself but it must also, in a countermovement and in order to save energy, form habits or regularities that remain the same.
