Philosophy News Network: Derrida Arrested


"And how do you plead to the charge of obscurantism?"

"The theory of a 'plea' is organized, understood, and experienced prior to any conscious intention as a theory of language.

These two modes must come together in an infinite manifold in order for any 'plea' to be made."

"God damnit Derrida, come on."

About half the time spent on this comic was spent on figuring out how exactly Simone de Beauvoir's hair works, and it still ended up looking terrible. I make no apologies for Derrida's hair, however, for no artist alive can capture that glorious mane.
