The first impulse a reader is likely to have upon starting to read chapter 10 is to close the book in dismay and disgust. The sentences appear to become increasingly entangled, to lead nowhere, and ultimately to add up to nothing.
It became widespread also in legal studies, especially through the Critical Legal Studies movement in the United States and their equivalents in the UK — movements that were also indebted to actualized versions of Marxism and concerned with the demands of subaltern groups such as women, ethnical minorities and LGBT. It has, therefore, some degree of institutional reception in those fields. Against that hypothesis, we would argue, first, that, as some in our opinion, more rigorous readers of Derrida have argued cf. This relation between foundation, conservation, and finally destruction is, as we shall see, where the complex relations between law and violence are brought forward to show their paradoxical nature.
Derrida, Structure, Sign and Play
Yesterday I started trying to record a "Close Reading" on the Derrida essay we read for the podcast , and I just couldn't get more than a few sentences into it before losing patience, so I thought I'd either as a substitution for that effort or possibly a warm-up do a few posts dissecting the essay here. I want this to be group effort, so you folks should comment here to help out my interpretations. Perhaps something has occurred in the history of the concept of structure that could be called an "event," if this loaded word did not entail a meaning which it is precisely the function of structural-or structuralist-thought to reduce or to suspect. But let me use the term "event" anyway, employing it with caution and as if in quotation marks. In this sense, this event will have the exterior form of a rupture and a redoubling. It would be easy enough to show that the concept of structure and even the word "structure" itself are as old as the episteme -that is to say, as old as western science and western philosophy-and that their roots thrust deep into the soil of ordinary language, into whose deepest recesses the episteme plunges to gather them together once more, making them part of itself in a metaphorical displacement. Nevertheless, up until the event which I wish to mark out and define, structure-or rather the structurality of structure-although it has always been involved, has always been neutralized or reduced, and this by a process of giving it a center or referring it to a point of presence, a fixed origin.
But even more than the re-conception of difference, and perhaps more importantly, deconstruction attempts to render justice. Indeed, deconstruction is relentless in this pursuit since justice is impossible to achieve. Derrida failed his first attempt at this exam, but passed it in his second try in The s is a decade of great achievement for this generation of French thinkers. In the early 60s, Derrida reads Heidegger and Levinas carefully. The recently published lecture course from —, Heidegger: The Question of Being and History , allows us to see how Derrida developed his questions to Heidegger. From then on up to the present, the word is bandied about, especially in the Anglophone world.

Structure, Sign, and Play in the Discourse of the Human Sciences French : La structure, le signe et le jeu dans le discours des sciences humaines was a lecture presented at Johns Hopkins University on 21 October by philosopher Jacques Derrida. Although presented at a conference intended to popularize structuralism, the lecture is widely cited as the starting point for post-structuralism in the United States. Along with Derrida's longer text Of Grammatology , it is also programmatic for the process of deconstruction. Many attendees came from France, and spoke French during the event; French lectures were translated into English and distributed in print. Lacan was one of the few French attendees to lecture in English; Lacan makes a point of this gesture at the beginning of the lecture, titled "Of Structure as the Inmixing of an Otherness Prerequisite to Any Subject Whatever". Derrida is dealing with structural ism , a type of analysis which understands individual elements of language and culture as embedded in larger structures. The archetypal examples of structuralism come from Ferdinand de Saussure , who argued that phonemes gain 'linguistic value' through their relations with each other.
Deconstructing Derrida: Review of "Structure, Sign and Discourse in the Human Sciences"
Play is the disruption of presence. The presence of an element is always a signifying and substitutive reference inscribed in a system of differences and the movement of a chain. Play is always play of absence and presence, but if it is to be thought radically, play must be conceived of before the alternative of presence and absence SSP
