Readings and Miller calls us to reflect on deconstruction's relation to teaching, its thinking and practice of teaching, especially in relation to the interplay with “culture.” Via a return to Derrida, this chapter discusses the import of “teaching deconstruction” in view of the problem of “culture.” Close attention to Derrida's work (and his teaching) may well provide us with a way of imagining precisely the kind of “network of obligations” in the classroom or lecture hall to which Readings gestures, whereby teacher and student remain embroiled upon the difficult, aporetical ground of teaching as an event both within and beyond “tradition,” which one can neither simply take nor leave.
