Derrida's essay “Where a Teaching Body Begins and How It Ends” assumes and performs a certain virtualization (or actuvirtualization) of the teaching body. Long before its time, it keeps open the question of the future, tying its possibility to a series of relations and resistances shaping up around the “virtual.” For all these reasons, this chapter argues that “Where a Teaching Body Begins and How It Ends” is one sign of the “fidelity of a guardian” engaged in a certain “double keeping”.
