Sample text

But since differences are ‘neither fallen from the sky nor inscribed once and for all in a closed system’ (P, 27), we need to see that ultimately (as it were) everything owes its identity to differance. Differance marks the opening of a system of differences in which everything acquires meaning and value according to what ‘we believe we know as the most familiar thing in the world’ (OG, 70–1) – that the outside is not the inside. But ‘without differance as temporalization, without the nonpresence of the other inscribed within the sense of the present’ (OG, 71), nothing could be said to have meaning or value in ‘itself ’.

When am I? (What is my being? ). But for Derrida these cannot be confined to effects upon the characters and events in that text ‘itself ’, as if Hamlet were a self-contained or selfsufficient entity in a periodic table of fully constituted textual differences. They extend rather to questions of being and time in general. And as such they are not simply literary or aesthetic questions that we might choose to puzzle over at our leisure or according to some privilege. On Derrida’s argument they are urgently political questions that call for a response in the absence of any programme, preconceived agenda or ‘periodic table’ of appropriate actions.

And this im-possible temporality, aligned with the im-possibility of the ghost’s being there, obliges us to ‘think otherwise the “time” or the date of an event. ). The exemplary instance of an historical date today is ‘9/11’. However, to suppose that what happened on that day did not happen for the first time (in the sense of being utterly original, the very thing in itself ) would not mean having to deny that thousands of people did actually die in Manhattan on 11 September 2001 and that millions of others around the world were stricken with fear and loathing as they watched it happening over and over again on television.
