Derrida, teaching at the time of this seminar as an agrégé-répetiteur at the ENS in Paris, suggests that François Jacob’s interpretation of the DNA reproductive program transfers easily to the philosophical institution where teaching, under the direction of state authorities, takes place as auto-reproduction. Derrida questions the fate of the body and of academic freedom in this context of teaching as mechanical reproduction of sameness.
