Positions


Positions

"Position" is a work by French philosopher Jacques Derrida, published in 1972. It consist of a collection of interviews. Derrida talks about his earlier works and their relationships. He said that his 1962 essay, "", already contained many elements of his thought, that would be further elaborated later. He added: "that essay can be read as the other side (recto or verso, as you wish) of "Speech and Phenomena"." ["Positions" Eng. 1981, p. 5.]

On the relationship between is three foundational works of 1967, Derrida explained: " ["Speech and Phenomena"] is perhaps the essay which I like most. Doubtless I could have bound it as a long note to one or the other of the other two works. "Of Grammatology" refers to it and economizes its development. But in a classical philosophical architecture, "Speech..." would come first: in it is posed, at a point which appears juridically decisive for reasons that I cannot explain here, the question of the privilege of the voice and of phonetic writing in their relationship to the entire history of the West, such as this history can be represented by the history of metaphysics and metaphysics in its most modern, critical and vigilant form: Husserl's transcendental phenomenology." ["Positions" Eng. 1981, pp. 4-5]
