Simberg Eulogizes Derrida

Lynne Kiesling

Rand Simberg’s funny eulogy for Jacques Derrida is another one of those things that I wish I had written:

But if, as he once suggested, we use postcultural structuralist theory to deconstruct hierarchy, then it could be said that the characteristic theme of this pseudo event is in reality the rubicon of neodialectic bioidentity. In fact, consider this in the context of the fact that he actively promoted the use of predialectic narrative to challenge society, thus contextualising the subject into a neodialectic deconstruction that includes reality as a totality. By this reasoning (bearing in mind that reason is not a road to truth), it could be said that death itself is dead.

Yikes! Can’t makes heads or tails of it … fitting.
