Thus “writing” is not only his favored term for that which enables the sense and the truth-value of statements or propositions to be communicated from one context to the next but also, as he argues in quasi-Kantian vein, the necessary and transcendentally deducible condition of possibility for any such process to occur (Gasché 1986; Norris 1987, 2000a). Exemplary here is his early Introduction to Husserl’s essay “The Origin of Geometry” where Derrida shows how a certain, structurally requisite though largely implicit recourse to the topos of writing is precisely the means by which Husserl accounts for the periodic stages of advance – or, so to speak, of punctuated equilibrium – that have characterized the history of mathematics and the other formal sciences to date (IOG).

The first deconstructions Derrida produced had targeted the founding texts of philosophy. These deconstructions seemed to operate within a temporal horizon that reminded one of Heidegger’s history of Being. In contrast, after about 1989 (the publication of “Force of Law”), Derrida explored the ethical or political experience such as that of the gift, of hospitality, the secret, forgiveness, 13 zeynep direk and leonard lawlor and sovereignty. In the deconstruction Derrida produced during the last 15 years of his life, he showed that these experiences are aporetically structured.

The essay focuses mostly on “Violence and 6 introduction Metaphysics” and Derrida’s critical engagement with Levinas, which is still very central in making sense of Derrida’s own position concerning the relation between self and other; metaphysics and ethics; and ethics and politics. Derrida questioned Levinas’s use of the term “exteriority” in order to characterize the radical alterity of the Other as challenging the conceptuality of Western philosophy that assimilates or subordinates the Other to the Same.
