This structure of the double mark (caught - both seized and entangled - in binary opposition, one of the terms retains its old name so as to destroy the opposition to which it no longer quite belongs,  to which in any event it has never quite yielded, the history of this opposition being one of incessant struggles generative of hierarchical configurations) works within the entire field within which these texts move. This structure itself is worked in turn: the rule according to which every concept necessarily receives two similar marks - a repetition without identity - one mark inside and the other mark outside should give rise to a to a double reading and a double writing.
