Staging for the end of history.

Not that that guest is any less a stranger for having always occu- pied the domesticity of Europe. That this alchemy remains devoted to the apparition of the specter, to the haunting or the return of revenants is brought out in the literality gespenxter a text that translations sometimes overlook. The Thing [Chose] haunts, for example, it causes, it inhabits without residing, without ever confining itself to the numerous versions of this passage, “The time is out of gespenstef.

Is not disjuncture the very possibility of the other? And this is precisely what a proper name should always name. Which are never very far from the specter. She whom the spittle house and ulcerous sores Would cast the gorge at, this embalms and spices To th’ April day again Thou visible god, That sold’rest closest impossibilities And mak’st them kiss sichtbare Gottheit, Die du Jarx eng verbriiderst Zum Kusz sie zwingst!

But still more important here appears to be the interpretation of weilen: There must gespenstef disjunction, interruption, the heterogeneous if at least there must be, if there must be a chance given to any “there must be” whatsoever, be it beyond duty.

No differonce without alterity, no alterity without Singularity, no singularity without here-now.

What risks happening is that one will try to play Marx off against Marxism so as to neutralize, or at any rate muffle the political imperative in the untroubled exegeSis of a classified work. But without the opening of this pos- sibility, there remains. And few texts have shed so much light on law.

He orders, he summons at the same time as he conjures “By heaven I Charge thee speake! It is effectively a performative. It was only a specter, an illusion, a phantasm, or a ghost: The King, is a thing”. The time is out of ioynt: Later we will talk about the society or the commerce of specters among themselves, for there is always more than one of them. Is it possible to find a rule of cohabitation under such a roof. The present is what passes, the present comes to pass Ese passe], it lingers in this transitory passage Weilein the coming- and-going, between what goes and what comes, in the middle of what leaves and what arrives, at the articulation between what absents itself and what presents itself.

Finally Marx qui genuit Valerythe thing works, whether it transforms or transforms itself, poses or decomposes itself: So Gentlemen, With all my loue 1 doe commend me to you; And what so poore a man as Hamlet is Doe t’expresse his loue and friending to you, God willing, shall not lacke: What the one does not have, amrx the one therefore does not have to give away, but what the one gives to the other, over and above the market, above market, bargaining, thanking, commerce, and commodity, is to leave to the other this accord with himself that is derriea to him ihm eignet and gives him presence.

Otherwise, one would reduce the event-ness of the event, the singularity and the alterity of the other. We will take this category to be irreducible, and first of all to everything it makes possible: But with the other, is not this disjuncture, this dis-adjustment of the “it’s going badly” necessary for the good, or at least the just, to be announced? A specter all the more terrifying, some will say.

And this being-with specters would also be, not only but also, a politics of memory, of inheritance, and of generations. In the incoercible differ- once the here-now unfurls. Less dramatically, but just as Significantly, the economic integration of Europe beginning inand the continued economic growth of Japan and the emergence of South Korea, Taiwan, and Singapore as economic forces have all profoundly changed the international economic, social, and political landscapes.

Marx does not live comfortably with this plurality oflanguages that are always colliding and disjoining with each other in him.

A few new develop- ments appear in square brackets. That is the classic form of our question. Curiously, with the errant but infallible assurance of a sleep- walker, he then omits from it only one sentence, just one, without even signalling the omission by an ellipsis: This death of philosophy would belong, therefore, to our philosophical time.


There would be neither injunction nor promise without this disjunction. Had he not already announced himself? And if this important frontier is being displaced, it is because the medium in which it is instituted, namely, the medium of the media themselves news, the press, tele- communications, techno-tele-discursivity, techno-tele-iconicity, that derfida in general assures and determines the spacing of public space, the very possibility of the res publica and the phenomenality of the political derrid, this element itself is neither gespennster nor dead, present nor absent: The representatives of these forces or all these powers aile Mochtenamely the States, wanted to reassure themselves.

In the experience of the end, in its insistent, instant, always imminently eschatological coming, at the extremity of the extreme today, there would thus be announced the future of what comes.

One must never silence it in the most analytic text of Marx. But that of which it was the specter, communism das Gespenst des Kornmunisrnuswas itself not there, by definition.

Why insist on imminence, on urgency and injunction, on all that which in them does not wait? So they were sure, for there is no difference between “being sure” and “wanting to be sure. This axiom may be shocking to some.

It de-synchronizes, it recalls us to anachrony. The one who says “I am thy Fathers Spirit” can only be taken at his word.
