Derrida and Searle

the abyss stares back?

Andreas Vrahimis

pp. 160-181

A long and turbulent affair between Jacques Derrida and Anglophone philosophy began when in 1967, Derrida presented "La Différance' in Oxford.1 Besides Derrida's various brief mentions of the particular event, little else has been written about it. Derrida recounts it first in The Post Card, a series of quasi-fictional and quasi-autobiographical post-cards addressed to a lover, written, according to Derrida, on the back of a medieval picture of Plato and Socrates.
