Writing Before the Letter: Jacques Derrida and Deconstruction
I am always curious of philosophical bloggers who post an essay but then do not except comments.
I suppose my curiosity is piqued more when I have something to say about it. For example this essay.
I am also curious about certain authors, which then goes to inform comments I would make on essays that propose to be talking about or explaining what the author philosophy is.
in particular, there is Jaques Derrida. and then there is all the people who like to make comments or like to use his philosophy in someway.
my curiosity which forms a comment on the essay that I linked to in this blog post goes like this:
has anyone ever considered how Derrida would be able to know what he is knowing to thereby have his ideas?
I mean, has anyone who has read him pondered how it is possible that he could know such a thing?
and in reference to the essay, I am particularly asking how anyone would be able to pose truthfully A philosophy which says that everyone’s appropriation of text is ultimately subjective? that everyone has has or comes to their own idea about what the text is, and that this idea is pretty much excluded from everyone else’s idea.
How could Jaques Derrida possibly know this?
has any large brand thinker in the past 50 years contemplated how he could know such a thing?
or has everyone just kind of taking it on faith that he has some sort of intellectual prophet?
Perhaps anyone who might read this post might instead of only liking it leave me a comment which asked.
but if you don’t want to, that’s fine too you can just give me a like it’ll make me feel good.
