This is recognisable deconstructive reading makes clear to what extent the talk of an in an exemplary way, on the one hand, in the ventured [se risquer] name unsurpassable impossibility or indecidability imposes itself by itself. In this sense, it is con- a more differentiated status. We notice subsequently in the texts as an expression of its 'discovery' and that a with a closer reading of the texts that Derrida usually speaks of 'the note at the end makes us aware of this addition, while its subsequent impossible' when he refers to this 'positive' impossibility.

While it explicit discussion in La differance 'opens' see note 8 of this chapter is possible, up to a point, to understand the 'impossibility' in the the volume Marges de Ja philosophie pointing forwards, at the same traditional sense as the result of a judgment based on given criteria time, to future unfoldings.

Derrida 's reading of Husserl results, therefore, therefore have to be linked up with the deferment of the differance in the emergence of a pure difference which defers infinitely the with an a which, as Derrida says, ' produces effects' a: There exists always only a supplement of this presence.

Perhaps Derrida outlines anew, formulated in the conditional mode 'If that is the case, then it must in Politiques de l'amitie-again, only subsequently reflected upon This seemingly second - thesis which would support the introductory would be the 'dan-gerous Perhaps' that Friedrich Nietzsche first chesis: Umil then, Derrida already in Foucault.

No place is conceded for a contrary chesis. We can already recognise The thesis does not get its force from its author anymore, but is rather in these texts and lectures the 'not-meaning -to-say anything' that already the expression and venture of an experience described in the later in the interview entitled 'lmplications' see Derrida b texc.

What is said in the mode of the 'Perhaps' imposes itself with an becomes a key to how Derrida sees himself. The Baltimore lecture inner necessity but it will not achieve ehe status of a certainty. Therein seems to depart from this pattern for the first time. From ehe begin- appears a political moment that opens to actioo and at the same time ning, Derrida defends his own thesis.

Only for a Jack of space escapes any ideologisation: In the mode of the Perhaps, a certain and, must we omit a detailed and substantial reading of this lecture. The connotations that governs a writing thus enlarged and radicalized, no longer issues from Derrida seeks to unfold in order to lay the foundation of a politics a logos. The power of assertion with which this of one's mark' [prendre appel] into an active responsibility vis a vis speech is endowed arises first and foremost from its inevitability. In an anterior call. If the former observations avant propos perhaps reveal already a con- iii lt is in Force of Law that the political dimension of the sequently followed train of thought and a 'criteriology' that is not just mode of the 'Perhaps' becomes explicit again.

Taking into account stated but also that must be recognised, then ehe mode of the perhaps what has already been said, the next quotation may already speak could open a horizon for a responsible [verantwortetej political praxis for itself.

By specifying rec urrently: This appears in English in the text. The aim of Derrida's reading of Schmitt is to show that the latter cannot, event, the law of an aporia, an undecidability, a double bind occurs in in the end, maintain the purity of his disrinction, of the 'concrete antagon- interposition, and must in truth impose itself to be endured there.

Cosmopolitanism in Derrida's works sounds like an afterthought in comparison to other more recurring themes of his texts, like 'writing', 'differance', 'supplement', 'metaphysics', or 'violence'. Cosmopolitanism seems to belong to deconstruction, which is often associated with decentring, fragmentation, and critique of totality and universality, only as an intimate other, a foreign element grafted in the body by force, or by miracle.

That is the reason why, perhaps, hardly any cosmopolitanist refers to the issue of cosmopolitanism in Derrida or in deconstruction, so much so that even Derrida has written very sparsely on it as it belongs perhaps to the dormant, if not the repressed, other of deconstruction itself, and it surfaces in his thinking only as a surprise, an event, or a gift. Derrida, I contend, radicalises cosmopolitanism not only by rescuing it from both the Statist model that conceives of it as world government, and a utopian model that confines it to world citizenship, but also by critiquing and revising the traditional theoontological conceptualisation of sovereignty and by supplementing it with a new form of decisionism, which can be called the sovereignty of the other.

His notion of the city of refuge represents the other heading' of that sovereignty, which, in contrast to the indivisible nature of traditional sovereignty, is shared and divided, and in which it is always the other who decides without exonerating me from being responsible for its decision.
