Not One of My Moments

Wood, Sarah (2017) Not One of My Moments. Derrida Today, 10 (2). pp. 160-179. ISSN 1754-8500. E-ISSN 1754-8519. (doi:10.3366/drt.2017.0154) (KAR id:63358)


This essay imagines Derrida by starting from the first page of Glas—read in terms of extinction and global warming. On that page we come across the imperative ‘stay and think’ and the rest of the piece addresses the condensations and displacements by which that staying and thinking are imagined and enacted. An unimaginable ecological crisis faces us today. Hearing, dreaming, and reading emerge from Glas as distinctively strange and necessary forms of agency that can sustain our efforts to think (and act) non-destructively in response.
