Around the Book

Henry Sussman

Fordham University Press

It is commonly thought that Derrida's reason in creating his most architectural and most explicit sexual work Glas points the way to some exit or escape from the prison of Western values so entrenched as to have become transparent. Glas is a book that goes beyond the farthest reaches of book culture, yet it established a textual modality of reverberation, supplementarity, chiasmatic reversal, and constriction. This is all by way of saying that there is an implicit architecture of history in Glas that its ideology's appeal sounds its silent echo. On the other hand, the Hegel column in Glas has been questioned to be extrapolated in comprehensive fashion during an epoch of Western culture but then soon terminated. Moreover, the split of Modernity resounds at a major juncture in Derrida's recounting of Hegelian Christianity.

Keywords:   Derrida, Glas, reverberation, supplementarity, constriction, Hegel, Modernity, Christianity
