  An exercise in deconstructive
The deconstructive process. Jacques
Derrida‟s four times around (4 go-rounds)
a subject. (ref. The Truth in Painting
translation, Bennington and McLeod
Jacques Derrida 1930-2004
           The „go‟ around.
The first time (around), Derrida proposes that
the researcher become occupied with folding
the great philosophical question of the
tradition. Intervention in the philosophy that
still dominates the discourse on aesthet(h)ics
(Plato, Socrates, Kant, Spinoza, Heidegger,
        second time around
The second time around the researcher
proceeds to negotiate, interpret (read) or
otherwise engage the question/the work
(ergon) in formal terms. Inside the frame…
In popular terms this is thinking inside the
  3rd g[o]-round (ground/grund)
The third time around the work (or the
subject in question) is in order to analyse
what Derrida terms the ductus (idiom of
the trait/trace as the draftsman=s
signature), and the system of duction
(production, reproduction, reduction, etc.).
      For reading a film….?
This he argues, concerns “the letter and
proper name in painting” (film,
architecture, ethics); “with narration,
technical reproduction, ideology, the
phoneme, the biographeme, and politics
among other things.”
This engages the authorship question,
properly situated in its socio-historical,
political and economic contexts. The
parergon --- thinking outside the box!!
            4th go around
The fourth time around Derrida “weaves
all these threads through a polylogue of N
+ 1 voices which happens to be that of a
woman.” That is, reinforcing hybridity and
intellectual „cross-dressing.‟
             sous rature
And finally submitting the research to the
imprimatur of sous rature (under erasure),
to suspend or prevent premature closure
of the investigation.
Is Derrida asking us to become….:
Philosophers? Mathematicians?
Historians/ art historians?
Social historians?
Sociologists?       Social anthropologists?
Political economists ?
