"I shall speak of ghost, of flame, and of ashes." These are the first words of Jacques Derrida's lecture on Heidegger. It is again a question of Nazism—of what remains to be thought through of Nazism in general and of Heidegger's Nazism in particular. It is also "politics of spirit" which at the time people thought—they still want to today—to oppose to the inhuman.

(That's what I like about Heidegger. When I think about him, when I read him, I'm aware of both of these vibrations at the same time. It's always horribly dangerous and wildly funny, certainly grave and a bit comical.)

That wonky Derrida, pulling an aside about the knee-slapping effects of Heidegger, especially in a text devoted to Martin H's involvement with Third Reich. That is brazen. The book deals with Heidegger's evasions and the changing forms with which the word spirit (geist) takes in He...more
The question of Heidegger and politics has plagued (and will continue to plague) continental philosophy since Heidegger's induction into the Recktorship under the Nazi regime in the thirties.

Why did he? But, and perhaps more importantly, why does something like Nazism come up? What is it about the West that breeds this kind of pathological racism? And how could Heidegger, for all his time concerned with, and working on authenticity and inauthenticity get swept up in the most inauthentic politic...more
I was about to write that Derrida's interpretation of Heidegger is interesting because Derrida is, in a sense, a Heideggerian. Then, the Derrida in me responded: "Is not the term 'Heideggerian' highly problematic? For to call a person or a text 'Heideggerian' presupposes that we can identify a particular quality that we might, in a gesture that I will not be so hasty as to call 'Heideggerian,' call 'Heideggerian-ness.' That is, in order to call something 'Heideggerian,' we would have to know som...more

نعم، مثير للتواضع.
Essential for anyone wanting to understand how to treat the relationship between Heidegger's philosophy and his national socialism seriously. Also crucial for understanding the ontological themes in deconstruction. One of Derrida's most sustained considerations of Heidegger, whose work shows up in subtle and ambiguous ways in all of Derrida's texts.Also crucial for understanding the complexities of post-modernisms ambivalence towards humanism.

An interesting read, eliciting much thought. Far from Derrida's strongest, most powerful works though.
William Durden
This is another Derrida work, like Politics of Friendship, that I need to re-read. There is a very important moment in a footnote to the ninth chapter that I base my impressions of this work on, which just emphasizes how little of this I actually retained in reading it.

Jacques Derrida (1930-2004) was the founder of “deconstruction,” a way of criticizing not only both literary and philosophical texts but also political institutions. Although Derrida at times expressed regret concerning the fate of the word “deconstruction,” its popularity indicates the wide-ranging influence of his thought, in philosophy, in literary criticism and theory, in art and, in particula...more
