Example text

In his initial considerations of the "question of inscription," Derrida turned to Husserl's phenomenological research into signification for both the most systematic version of meaning as self-presence and the most rigorous tools with which to deconstruct this system. Thus, the deconstruction of the philosophy of presence (which, being the philosophy of proper sense, is the only philosophy in the proper sense) undertaken by Derrida will not proceed like some frontal attack or siege from outside philosophy's walls.

Representation can be understood in the general sense of Vorstellung, but also in the sense of re-presentation, as repetition or reproduction of presentation, as the Vergegenwiirtigung which modifies a Priisentation or Gegenwiirtigung. And it can be understood as what takes the place of, what occupies the place of, another Vorstellung (Repriisentation, Repriisentant, Stellvertreter). 3 Let us consider the first argument. In monologue, nothing is communicated; one represents oneself (man stellt sich vor) as a speaking and communicating subject.

When and how does an inscription become literature? And these questions would, he suggested, have their roots in another, more obscure question he asks of 4 Difference at the Origin himself: "Why finally does inscription so fascinate me, preoccupy me, precede me? " (p. 38) It was as a philosopher trained in the rigors of phenomenological discipline that Derrida approached the question of inscription. His first major publication was a critical introduction to his translation of Husserl's The Origin of Geometry in 1962.
