Derrida, ''Structure, Sign and Play in the Discourse of the Human Sciences'' -- Jerz EL312 (Literary Criticism)
"Thus there are two interpretations of interpretation, of structure, of sign, of freeplay. The one seeks to decipher, dreams of deciphering, a truth or an orgin which is free from freeplay and from the order of the sign, and lives like an exile with the necessity of interpretation. The other, which is no longer turned toward the orgin, affirms freeplay and tries to pass beyond man and humanism, the name man being the name of that being who, throughout the history of metaphysics or of ontotheology- in other words, through the history of all the history - has dreamed of full presence, the reassuring foundation, the orgin and the end of game" (362).

I'm a Philosophy student at University of Salamanca (Spain). I'm working now on a presentation on Derrida, and as I've seen that
you work on one as well last term, I was wondering whether we could maybe get in touch and talk about Derrida.
So if you find the proposal attractive, my email id is: shiard[at]hotmail[dot]com
Also, I have checked out on the net Setonhill and, in a certain way, it looks to me
quite similar to my high school: the Mahindra United World College of India (www.uwc.org)
Along these lines, I'm also really into Literature, so I feel we might easily get on well.
Looking forward to your answer, and being pleased to meet you,
