Derrida Quote of The Day
Logocentrism is also, fundamentally, an idealism. It is the matrix of idealism. Idealism is its most direct representation, the most constantly dominant force. And the dismantling of logocentrism is simultaneously — a fortiori — a deconstitution of idealism or spiritualism in all their variants.
If one wished to schematize — but truly this is only a schema — what I have attempted can also be inscribed under the rubric of the “critique of idealism.” Therefore it goes without saying that to the extent that dialectical materialism also operates this critique, it in no way incurs my reticence, nor have I ever formulated any on this subject.
