Jacques Derrida

Fordham University Press

This chapter is a transcription of the opening session, on 4 November 2003, of three days of celebration marking the twenty year anniversary of the International College of Philosophy, of which Derrida was one of the founders. We hear Derrida discussing with Jean-Luc Nancy and others, including Hélène Cixous and Michel Deguy, the political and cultural circumstances surrounding the founding of the International College of Philosophy, the place of philosophy in the French university and in other academic institutions, the sometimes conflicted relationship between the members of the College and the university, and the importance of the College as a place of refuge for university professors and, especially, high school teachers of philosophers. The conversation sheds a great deal of light on this counter-institution called the International College of Philosophy, though also on university politics and the importance of philosophy more generally in France from the late 1960s into the new millennium.
