Things and signs

Peter, on putting Derrida on trial (again).

“Of Grammatology is not about how language, as one commentary on Of Grammatology puts it [I can’t find the book to cite it at the moment], shapes the world, but rather that the world is, as Jean-Luc Nancy puts it, nothing other than the passage of sense, an infinity of referrals but always in a finite context.”

Which reminds me that I really should look at publishing more on this book.
