In this series of dialogues, Derrida discusses and elaborates on
some of the central themes of his work, such as the problems of
genesis, justice, authorship and death. Combining autobiographical
reflection with philosophical enquiry, Derrida illuminates the
ideas that have characterized his thought from its beginning to the
present day. If there is one feature that links these
contributions, it is the theme of singularity - the uniqueness of
the individual, the resistance of existence to philosophy, the
temporality of the singular and exceptional moment, and the problem
The second half of this book contains an essay by Maurizio
Ferraris, in which he explores the questions of indication, time
and the inscription of the transcendental in the empirical. A work
of outstanding philosophy and scholarship, the essay is developed
in close proximity to Derrida and in dialogue with figures such as
Plato, Aristotle, Plotinus, Kant, Hegel and Heidegger. It thereby
provides a useful introduction to the philosophy of one of Italy's
most prominent philosophers as well as an excellent complement to
Derrida's own ideas.
