The Future Life of Trauma

Jennifer Yusin

Fordham University Press

The conclusion considers the question of how contemporary forms of geopolitical violence demand an articulation of a new form of the psyche, one that is susceptible to transformation and destruction. Paradoxes in Derrida’s concepts of differánce and the universal urgency of memory are unveiled in order to elaborate a new form of responsibility and meaning of response that does not depend on the motif of transference. To restore back to the other their pain without taking their place: such is the ethical and political demand of responsibility of our time.

Keywords:   Derrida, differánce, ethics, geopsychoanalysis, memory
