Derrida à l’oeuvre. Autour de Circonfession et au-delà
Derrida at Work. On Circumfession and Beyond
Languages of publication
The aim of this article is to discuss the autobiographical inscription that dwells in Jacques Derrida’s writing. Derrida’s « overmemory », that blocks autobiography as a récit, seems to be the trigger for the singular and somehow emotional style of his writing through which he saves himself inside his own philosophy based, among others, on the principle of dissemination. Circumfession, that I read through what I call « penile thread » [f i l p é n i e n], shows different strategies to preserve some traces of Derrida’s p r o p e r name.
