What happens when Derrida says
something that he doesn't mean?
Can you misinterpret him?
Socrates, via Plato, via Derrida, says:
And once a thing is put in writing, the composition, whatever
it may be, drifts all over the place, getting into the hands not only of
those who understand it, but equally of those who have no business
it; it doesn't know how to address the right people, and not address the
wrong. And when it is ill-treated and unfairly abused it always needs its
parent to come to its aid, being unable to defend itself
or attend to its
own needs (143).
