Questions for Jacques Derrida. Nevertheless, by generalizing, one creates analogies. For it is also a way schibboketh saying in the absolute that what de Man did is unforgivable, and this I cannot say of anything or anyone.

Schibboleth : para Paul Celan

Suppose we say that the Shoah has been a major trauma, unmatched, unique in the history of mankind. Last Monday, on the 5th of January, you were giving a seminar in Jerusalem, tackling the idea of forgiveness through a dialogue with the work of Jankelevitch.

No, it’s a joke, I’m kidding, it’s a joke. The element in which all this discourse is inscribed is the element of survival. It is a horrifying risk, a horrifying risk that was implied in the very act of extermination, where an attempt was made to traces and testimonies, to a point that later opened the field for all the revisionists. It is not a philosophy of history. Yale University Press, The statute of limitation [la prescription], in French legal language, means that after a certain date, generally twenty years, crimes are no longer prosecuted.

And he maintained that one should not forgive, that the crimes against humanity committed during what is called the Holocaust or the Shoah could not be forgiven precisely because they exceeded the measure of any kind of human judgement, they were out of proportion to any law, any human judgement, any human punishment, and consequently there was no knowing what to forgive.

So, in the French Parliament adopted a law making any crime against humanity exempt from the statute of limitation [imprescriptible], so that it must always be possible to prosecute perpetrators of crimes against humanity. We shall undoubtedly return to this: To return to the beginning of you question, of course, there are considerable differences between the attitude to the Shoah of Frenchmen and especially French philosophers and that of Germans and German philosophers.


I am talking, naturally, of a typical generality.

And to return briefly to what we were saying in the beginning, this is why a work of deconstruction is work on the history of Europe and on European culture, and it couldn’t have taken the forms it has taken without the reference to that European moment which was that schibbooeth this century or of the inter-war period.

This concept is very obscure, very difficult to outline or ground. How do you reconcile these notions which seem rather contradictory to one another or perhaps to the very project of philosophizing?

Want to Read saving…. But that is another subject. Until now I have been asking questions as if Deconstruction, your philosophy of history and historicity, is indeed a response to Auschwitz. Leavey, Jr, in ed. Why was the response to Heidegger’s sdhibboleth preoccupying French thinkers more intensively than Germans? I believe that this event is unique in a certain sense. In this respect, the official attitude of German philosophers, publicly, in any case, was one of a massive and radical exclusion of works such as those of Nietzsche and Heidegger, and this lasted a long time.

For Levinas, the “Thou shalt not kill” is not just one commandment in a series of commandments; it is the Law itself. It is at the same time nagging, as is the question of knowing if one should turn only towards the Holocaust or any holocaust, with all the problems schibbolsth metonymy and exemplarity we spoke of at the beginning.

I think it is unforgivable simply because zchibboleth crime and for instance the crime we are talking about Scgibboleth one knows that perhaps, in the future, this will be, if not erased or forgotten, at least classed, relativized by being classed. I don’t see how I, for one, can formulate the question in these terms.

Obviously, it would take hours of talking to answer these questions. But it was only, even during the experience of the extermination, a place among others. How would you defend this idea?

Schibboleth Pour Paul Celan

Are there any significant differences between the work of, say, Levinas and that of Jankelevitch? I wouldn’t want to compare my situation to any of jcques you have mentioned, all these great names from Spinoza to Eva Braun to Hanna Arendt. So one may imagine that, while for a generation that witnessed or participated closely in this trauma forgiveness should be impossible, for the following generation, forgiveness remaining still impossible, modes of reconciliation, of re-appropriation, of mourning become somewhat easier.

We can perhaps stop here.

He was judged for derrrida, and as for me, my concern is not to exonerate him of this responsibility. Want to Read Currently Reading Read.

So, at the same time identity and memory, the possibility of calling. From Socrates to Freud and Beyondtrans. So my conscience is not quiet on the subject of this word I wrote. The Israel Museum has been willing, in the last couple of months, to show an scbibboleth, performed by a young artist, R.

But what does the word ‘unique’ mean in this case? Outi Pasanen – – Research in Phenomenology 36 1: Paul de Man was not guilty of crimes against humanity, he was no butcher, no Nazi; still, he published literary articles in a newspaper that was collaborationist.
