I think that as we were saying a little while ago of French culture, Israeli culture has its own evolutionary time. Return to Book Page. But it can equally, at the same moment, take cognizance of its own violence, that is to say the violence that accompanied the founding of the State of Derridz.

Indeed, deconstruction is relentless in this pursuit since justice is impossible to achieve. Many French people, schhibboleth intellectuals, including myself, wrote to him to ask him to recognize the culpability of France and he was against it, giving his reasons, explaining why he thought it wasn’t right for France to blame itself for such a offence, since it hadn’t been France, nor the French state, nor the French Republic.

You know, it will take us more than a couple of minutes to deal with the problem of Anglo-American philosophy of drerida in fact there are many and of its relation to history and its distance from work like mine, for instance.

Or is it an effort to think – thinkingly, as it were – any genocide, any extermination and finally any crime, derria crime against humanity, as a crime against the Law, against the Torah, against the commandment “Thou shalt not kill”?

So, it must be emphasized that disinterest in the Holocaust often co-habits in American academic culture, probably for reasons of a bad conscience, with a prosecutorial attitude towards the least offence committed by European intellectuals, as the de Man or the Heidegger affairs have derridz, that is to say that the Americans, who were basically strangers to what happened in Europe, schibobleth, far away, American intellectuals and professors are often de-politicized, unlike many European intellectuals, they are shut up in their academic institutions, and they don’t have any space for political intervention, and very often, all too they are not interested even in the politics of their own country: Is he consecrating the absolute privilege of the Jewish people, even in its infinite disaster?


But is this wrong? Johnny B3 rated it it was amazing Apr 02, It is the question of a logic of the phantom, of inheritance and thus of survival – we are in the domain of survival. Everything that had threatened, persecuted, tortured, battered, exterminated the Jews became, how shall we say, unacceptable.

It’s too little, but too much. In answering you I’ll try to bring this back to our present concern, that is Yad Vashem and the Shoah. Does this judgement imply forgiveness?

Obviously, the violence of the Shoah, which was very close at the moment of the founding of the State of Israel, and which has prevented things which appeared too offensive or too threatening from coming to the public arena or to public conscience, consciousness or reference even Spinoza could’nt be spoken of in the early days of the State of Israel. As soon as you’ve tried to speak of choice, for example, each word you’ll use to talk about this, to talk about this unique thing, each word will be one taken from general language, a common noun that will re-inscribe you within a common language, that will therefore re-inscribe the Shoah within a common language.

Published first published January 1st This is a rather strong position.

Schibboleth : para Paul Celan

When I speak of forgiveness, of hospitality, it is always by reference to this event, whose very uniqueness is problematic. Let’s begin with the hypothesis that Heidegger’s attitude was infinitely guilty. The Shoah or the Holocaust has marked our jacque so ubiquitously, that it is difficult both to isolate it as a topic and then, in an interview such as this, to assemble all the reflections that have not ceased accumulating ever since.


Or rather, there is an archive that remains, a material archive. The Difference Between Gadamer and Derrida. One has to do with its a-historical character or scant interest in history, political history and the political history of Europe among Anglo-Analytical philosophers. How is one to explain, then, Levinas’ harsh reaction towards Schibbooeth

Interview With Professor Jacques Derrida, Ecole des Hautes Etudes en Sciences Sociales, Paris

From my own point of view, as an Israeli, this gesture seems to resemble that of revisionism. Does it mean that the Jewish people are chosen even in this respect, namely that even in the Sxhibboleth its election is confirmed and hence its absolute privilege, its alliance with God.

It was this attitude that I examined the other night, pointing out where it could be called into question. Coming now to the warm ddrrida you have just received in Israel.

But at the same time I insist on referring by this word or by this logic of survival to Auschwitz, but not only to Auscwitz, that is true. Any event is unique, any crime is unique, any death is unique. The World Holocaust Remembrance Center.
