Auditing Derrida

Auditing Derrida

(p.85) 4 Auditing Derrida

Simon Morgan Wortham

Fordham University Press

This chapter suggests that the audit culture of today serves not only to silence academics and intellectuals, but also to expose itself (in the university that remains) to unheard of ways of hearing and to impure yet undismissable testimony, promising to emerge as the “other” of its own deconstructible trait. It attempts an audit deconstruction of Derrida, which requires that we try to hear him. Specifically, it discusses how one would go about auditing or hearing Derrida.

Keywords:   Jacques Derrida, editorial audit, university, deconstruction
