Drucilla Cornell, Derrida: the gift of the future: the

future is:

an other already with us...the mark we leave on the

world we share will be inseparable from those infinite

appeals made to us and how we responded when we

were called.

Jacques Derrida, Taste for the Secret:

A simple phrase takes its meaning from a given context,

and already makes its appeal to another one in which it

will be understood; but, of course, to be understood it has

to transform the context in which it is inscribed. As a

result, this appeal, this promise of the future, will

necessarily open up the production of a new context,

wherever it may happen. The future is not present, but there

is an opening onto it; and because there is a future, a context

is always open. What we call opening of the context is

another name for what is still to come

Judith Butler, Giving an account of oneself:

Only in the face of (such) a query or attribution from an other -

‘Was it you?’’(who did this) –do any of us start to narrate

ourselves, or find that, for urgent reasons, we must become self-

narrating beings...narrative capacity constitutes a precondition

for giving an account of oneself and assuming responsibility for

one’s actions through that means. (11-12)

The irrecoverability and foreclosure of the referent is the very

condition of possibility for an account of myself, if the account

is to take narrative form. The irrecoverability of the original

referent does not destroy narrative; it produces it ‘in a fictional

direction’, as Lacan would say (37)

slide5
Jacques Derrida,Tastefor the secret:

If a right to the secret is not maintained, we are in a

totalitarian state... the autobiographical is the locus of the

secret... the autobiographical genre is always overreached

by the autobiographical itself
