Chapter Summary

In the years 1968-71 Jacques Derrida's philosophical work is best understood not only as an autonomous practice, but as triangulating between two other poles within the Parisian theoretical scene: a very close relationship with Philippe Sollers and the journal Tel Quel, and a more discreet, more clandestine tie with the work of Louis Althusser. This chapter pays particular attention to Derrida's earliest work on Husserl as well as his very complex relationship to Louis Althusser in the late 1960s. On 23 June 1966, Louis Althusser gave a lecture at the École Normale Supérieure on what he called the ‘theoretical conjuncture of current French philosophy’.
