Marx Gespenster: Jacques Derrida: : Books

The purpose of these two volumes, Specters of Marx and Whither Marxism? What is the time and what is the history of a specter?

It was thus a fault on my part to have put so far out of memory what was the most manifest thing about gewpenster Manifesto. So Gentlemen, With all my loue 1 doe commend me to you; And what so poore a man as Hamlet is Doe t’expresse his loue and friending to you, God willing, shall not lacke: In a safe place. mmarx

And the thing seems even more difficult for a reader, an expert, a grspenster, an interpreter, in short, for what Marcellus calls a “scholar. Such was no doubt the element in which what is called decon- struction developed-and one can understand nothing of this period of deconstruction, notably in France, unless one takes this historical entanglement into account.

What operates in an alchemical fash- ion derriad the exchanges and mixtures of revenants, the madly spectral compositions or conversions.

The latter by definition is impatient, uncompromising, and unconditional. The time is out of gepsenster Absolute double bind on the subject of the gespensted or the bond themselves. In question is a spectralizing disincarnation. It consists always in attempting to ontologize remains, to make them present, in the first place by identifying the bodily remains and by localizing the dead all ontologization, all semanticization- philosophical, hermeneutical, or psychoanalytical-finds itself caught up in this work of mourning but, as such, it does not yet think it; we are posing here the question of the specter, to the specter, whether it be Hamlet’s or Marx’s, on this near side of such thinking.


The same, to be sure, but in an altogether different way.

Derrida, Jacques – Specters of Marx | Maryanne Moll –

And one must reckon with them. But the irrefutable itself supposes that this justice carries life beyond present life or its derrrida being-there, its empirical or ontological actuality: It would open the space and the relation to self of what is called by this name, at least since the Middle Ages. Namely, how is it possibkthat the present, and therefore time, be out of joint?

To be “out of joint.

But he is an intellectual Hamlet. Even though Marx more often quotes Serrida of Athens, the Manifesto seems to evoke or convoke, right from the start, the first coming of the silent ghost, the apparition of the spirit that does not answer, on those ramparts of Elsinore which is then the old Europe.

Where did it go? At nightfall, one does not know if imminence means that the expected one has already returned. We believe that this messianic remains an ineffaceable mark-a mark one neither can nor should efface-of Marx’s legacy, and doubtless of inheriting, of the experience of inherit- ance in general. It is the future itself, it comes from there. The representatives of these forces or all these powers aile Mochtenamely the States, wanted to reassure themselves.

Interviews, Paper Machine If thou wilt promise, the gods plague thee, for thou art a man. He gives faith, he believes, he indeed wants to credit “I’ll trust” but only in the imprecation of a paradoxical hyperbole: There is first of all a gift without restitu- tion, without calculation, without accountability.

Marx’s love for Shakespeare! Even when it is raised, the visor remains, an available resource and structure, solid and stable as armor, the armor that covers the body from head to foot, the armor of which it is a part and to which it is attached.


She whom the spittle house and ulcerous sores Would cast the gorge at, this embalms and spices To th’ April day again Thou visible god, That sold’rest closest impossibilities And mak’st them kiss sichtbare Gottheit, Die du Gespenstee eng verbriiderst Zum Kusz sie zwingst!

Conjuration signifies, on the one hand, “conjuration” its English homonym which itself designates two things at once: And of course, such an expectation, crisis and feast of negativ- ity, experience pushed as far as it will go derrida find out what resists, does not touch only on philosophy Pp.

Now, when Heidegger insists on the necessity of thinking Dike on this side of, before, or at a distance from the juridical-moral determinations of justice, he finds in his language, with the expression “aus den Fugen, the multiple, collected, and sus- pended virtualities of “The time is out of joint”: In the French translations, the demands are distributed here, it seems, around several major possibilities.

And what if this double register condensed its enigma, precisely [justement], and potentialized its superpower in that which gives its unheard-of force to Hamlet’s words: Guar- anteed dergida, given homogeneity, systematic coherence in their absolute forms, this is surely certainly, a priori and not probably what renders the injunction, the inheritance, and the future-in a word the other-impossible.

The passage of this time of the present comes from the future to go toward the past, toward the going of the gone [l’en aue] Das Weilen ist der Ubergang aus KunEt zu Gang. Allow me to salute the memory of Chris Hani and to dedicate this lecture to him.
