Between Translatability and Singularity

(p.74) 3 Thematizations of Language
Exemplarity and Chosenness
Stanford University Press

This chapter traces how Jacques Derrida developed his thinking about universality and particularity in his work on questions of language, and explores how he launched a new “thematization” of language based on his “Introduction” to Edmund Husserl's “The Origin of Geometry.” It suggests that this thematization led to insights about the interplay of singularity and universality in language, especially with respect to proper names and the question of translation. The chapter also considers the influence of Derrida's work on linguistic phenomena on his philosophical nationality project.

Keywords:   Jacques Derrida, university, particularity, language, proper names, translation, linguistic phenomena, philosophical nationality
