The Post Card: From Socrates to Freud and Beyond

By Jacques Derrida

17 November 1979

You have been examining a a bit unfashionable loveletter, the final in background. yet you haven't but got it. convinced, its lack or far more than tackle prepares it to fall into all fingers: a submit card, an open letter within which the key seems, yet indecipherably.

What does a put up card are looking to say to you? On what stipulations is it attainable? Its vacation spot traverses you, you not understand who you're. on the very quick whilst from its deal with it interpellates, you, uniquely you, rather than attaining you it divides you or units you apart, sometimes overlooks you. and also you love and also you don't love, it makes of you what you would like, it takes you, it leaves you, it provides you.

On the opposite aspect of the cardboard, glance, a proposition is made to you, S and p, Socrates and plato. For as soon as the previous turns out to put in writing, and together with his different hand he's even scratching. yet what's Plato doing along with his outstretched finger in his again? whenever you occupy your self with turning it round in each path, it's the photograph that turns you round like a letter, prematurely it deciphers you, it preoccupies house, it procures your phrases and gestures, the entire our bodies that you simply think you invent in an effort to verify its define. you end up, you, your self, on its path.

The thick aid of the cardboard, a ebook heavy and light-weight, is additionally the threat of this scene, the research among Socrates and Plato, at the application of numerous others. just like the soothsayer, a "fortune-telling booklet" watches over and speculates on that-which-must-happen, on what it certainly may possibly suggest to occur, to reach, to need to happen or arrive, to allow or to make occur or arrive, to destine, to handle, to ship, to legate, to inherit, etc., if all of it nonetheless indicates, among the following and there, the close to and the some distance, da und fort, the single or the other.

You situate the topic of the publication: among the posts and the analytic stream, the excitement precept and the historical past of telecommunications, the submit card and the purloined letter, in a notice the transference from Socrates to Freud, and past. This satire of epistolary literature needed to be farci, filled with addresses, postal codes, crypted missives, nameless letters, it all confided to such a lot of modes, genres, and tones. In it I additionally abuse dates, signatures, titles or references, language itself.

J. D.

"With The submit Card, as with Glas, Derrida seems extra as author than as thinker. Or let's imagine that right here, in what's partially a ridicule epistolary novel (the lengthy part is named "Envois," approximately, "dispatches" ), he phases his writing extra brazenly than within the scholarly works. . . . The publish Card additionally includes a sequence of self-reflective essays, mostly taken with Freud, within which Derrida is fantastically lucid and direct."—Alexander Gelley, Library Journal
