L'écriture et la différence

Publisher: Paris, Éditions du Seuil [1967]. Coll. 'Tel Quel'.
439 p.; 20.5 cm. "La signification de *l'écriture* est prise dans une histoire, portée par une culture. Sous toutes ses formes, par sa philosophie, son savoir, sa religion, sa technique, ses arts, sa littérature surtout, l'aventure occidentale est engagée dans le système d'interprétation qui la rapporte à sa propre écriture, aux limites et aux fonctions qui lui sont assignées. N'excluant ni l'efficience ni la méconnaissance, cette représentation du signe écrit n'est pas seulement marquée d'histoire et de culture: tous les concepts de l'Occident, en particulier ceux d'histoire et de culture, sont inscrits dans sa clôture."
