Example text

We can easily see that the essays we have collected into the second part of our Companion open up, primarily through Derrida’s more ethical and political writings, certain areas of investigation: feminism, religious thinking, and education, for instance. The essays we have grouped in Part III pursue these areas explicitly. So, in “A Philosophy of Touching Between the Human and the Animal: The Animal Ethics of Jacques Derrida,” Patrick Llored considers what he views as the most important question of Derrida’s late philosophy, the question of animality.

However, what both parties – the “analytical” foes of deconstruction together with its “literary” admirers – ignore is the irreducibility of writing to any such narrowly (albeit customarily) restricted scope. I must refer readers back to his own intricate and nuanced treatment of the topic for a full-scale exposition of arche-écriture (“primordial” or “generalized” writing) as Derrida conceives and deploys that term throughout his early texts on Rousseau, Hegel, Husserl, Saussure, Lévi-Strauss, Austin, and others (Voice and Phenomenon, Of Grammatology, and Writing and Difference).

Then the presence it signifies would be performatively evoked in order to justify or challenge the existing social and political world order. This trace, however, also solicits us to pray for the impossible. Caputo makes clear that, although Derrida’s religion is a religion without dogmas, creeds, ritual, religion books, it also affirms faith. Derrida’s religion without religion values non-knowledge, the promise, and messianic openness. Caputo argues that Derrida’s faith, as inscribed in the khōra, is more profound than atheism and theism, khōra being the groundless ground of faith.
