Le phonocentrisme en procès

Christian Kamgain Djoko

published online: 13. 01. 2015


In his work De la grammatologie, Derrida embarks upon a critical analysis of Rousseau’s texts. Far from being a retrospective look at an episodic and glorious philosophical past, this vigorous analysis refers rather to a well-rooted practice in Derrida, which consists precisely of a rewriting effectuated within texts in which it is necessary to re-launch – often against these texts themselves – the logic that initially founds and articulates them. In light of this, the hypothesis that we wish to advance within the narrow parameters of this article is that the discussion and questioning of Rousseau constitutes, for Derrida, a stepping stone towards its critique of phonocentrism and a determination of the paradoxical relationship between philosophy and writing.
