By Jacques Derrida

Its visual appeal will support Derrida's readers professional and con in coming to phrases with a fancy and controversial book. Glas greatly reworks the issues of analyzing and writing in philosophy and literature; questions the potential of linear interpreting and its consequent notions of subject matter, writer, narrative, and discursive demonstration; and ingeniously disrupts the positions of reader and author within the text.Glas is notable in lots of methods, most manifestly in its typography. prepared in columns, with inserted sections inside of those, the publication at the same time discusses Hegel’s philosophy and Jean Genet’s fiction, and exhibits how such likely unique types of feedback can mirror and impact each other. The standard segregation of philosophy, rhetoric, psychoanalysis, linguistics, heritage, and poetics is systematically subverted. In layout and content material, the books calls into query “types” of literature (history, philosophy, literary criticism), the possession of principles and kinds, the glorification of literary heroes, and the bounds of literary illustration.

In the late eighteenth century, German Romantics appropriated and developed this tradition in a counter-Enlightenment move. Norman O. Brown’s Life Against Death: The Psychoanalytical Meaning of History (1959) provides a succinct summary: It is one of the great romantic visions, clearly formulated by Schiller and Herder as early as 1793 and still vital in the systems of Hegel and Marx, that the history of mankind consists in a departure from a condition of undifferentiated primal unity with himself and with nature, an intermediate period in which man’s powers are developed through differentiation and antagonism (alienation) with himself and with nature, and a final return to a unity on a higher level of harmony.

The self is a relation that relates itself to itself or is the relation’s relating itself to itself in the relation; the self is not the relation but is the relation’s relating itself to itself. A human being is a synthesis of the finite and the infinite, of the temporal and the eternal, of freedom and necessity, in short, a synthesis. A synthesis is a relation between two.
