Information

Ziele, Inhalte und Methode der Lehrveranstaltung

The course will explore the thought of Jacques Derrida through careful reading of select writings. Although some philosophical background is helpful, it is not necessary.
Derrida, who founded the approach of "deconstruction" and was a generative father of "postmodernism" still is of great interest for both theoretical and practical philosophy. Through neologisms and concepts such as différance (which sought to replace Husserlian “directedness” with an intuitive indifference), aporia (which extends beyond the provenance of the dialectic), logocentricism, (which attempts to conceive of reliable signs to point to "the logos"), and the political (which is based upon the question of hospitality), Derrida is known for synthesizing insights from both phenomenology and semiotics in order to create something new.
Phrases such as "there is nothing outside the text" tend to be misinterpreted, and therefore overshadow Derrida's vast influence, which can be located squarely within a Heideggerian and Nietzschean legacy of condemning the Platonic eidos and any "metaphysics of presence" that seeks the genesis and origination of thinking itself. In the wake of Heidegger’s fundamental ontology, Derrida wished to get beyond how originary lived experience had become the sole point of legitimation for philosophy. This course will introduce the work of Derrida as well as the essential concepts he developed over the years.
