The Marrano Specter

Marrano thinking, for many of the contributors to this volume, comes to signify the very work of deconstruction. Against the reductive and reactionary misreadings of deconstruction’s detractors, against the policing of deconstruction’s borders by the faithful guardians of Derrida’s legacy, marranismo becomes a provocative and promising trope: a model for thinking, in an age where thinking seems to take place “only on the rarest of occasions.”
