    Fonts of Etymology: Abstraction and the Absolute in Derrida’s 'Faith and Knowledge…'.Laurent Milesi - 2018 - Journal for Cultural Research 22 (4):358-367.
    ABSTRACTThe essay explores the dense etymological nexus that structures Jacques Derrida’s critical examination of religion in ‘Faith and Knowledge: The Two Sources of “Religion” at the Limits of Reason Alone’, with specific attention to the themes and motifs of abstraction versus subtraction, absolution, ‘flection’ and reflection, fount, or source, and font. In a final section, it assesses the critical role performed by Derrida’s reliance on etymology not as a form of linguistic ‘fundamentalism’, let alone in an essay that addresses such (...)

    Chinoiseries : Hallucinating Derrida Hallucinating China.Laurent Milesi - 2018 - Oxford Literary Review 40 (1):95-107.
    Derrida's treatment of Chinese script as essentially non-phonetic in Of Grammatology has been a recurrent leitmotif among several sinologists and scholars of Chinese origin, particularly in Rey Chow's famous 2001 essay ‘How Inscrutable Chinese Led to Globalized Theory’. Despite forceful refutations of this misconception, the accusation of a fantasizing ‘ethnocentrism thinking itself as anti-ethnocentrism’ has endured and could still be found in a recent 2015 article suggestively titled ‘A Sort of European Hallucination: On Derrida's “Chinese Prejudice”’. This essay will probe (...)

    Cixanalyses — Towards a Reading of Anankè.Laurent Milesi - 2013 - Paragraph 36 (2):286-302.
    The first in-depth engagement with and close reading of Anankè, this essay focuses on how Cixous's novel plays with and rewrites psychoanalytic concepts and practices. The critical elaboration of her own ‘cixanalysis’ in this fiction-as-becoming and journey, which reinvents psychoanalysis as it gives free creative rein to woman's desire instead of pathologizing it, unfolds in six related studies: on ‘conduct’, ‘habit’, staging, transference and/as translation, the interpretation of interpretation, and the shift from drive to drift in Cixous's fictional liberation of (...)

  6. H. C. For Life, That is to Say..Laurent Milesi & Stefan Herbrechter (eds.) - 2006 - Stanford University Press.
    _H. C. for Life, That Is to Say..._ is Derrida's literary critical recollection of his lifelong friendship with Hélène Cixous. The main figure that informs Derrida's reading here is that of "taking sides." While Hélène Cixous in her life and work takes the side of life, "for life," Derrida admits always feeling drawn to the side of death. Rather than being an obvious choice, taking the side of life is an act of faith, by wagering one's life on life. _H. (...)

  7. Tombe.Laurent Milesi (ed.) - 2014 - Seagull Books.
    “In 1968-69 I wanted to die, that is to say, stop living, being killed, but it was blocked on all sides,” wrote Hélène Cixous, esteemed French feminist, playwright, philosopher, literary critic, and novelist.Instead of suicide, she began to dream of writing a tomb for herself. This tomb became a work that is a testament to Cixous’s life and spirit and a secret book, the first book she ever authored. Originally written in 1970, _Tombe_ is a Homerian recasting of Shakespeare’s _Venus (...)

  8. Zero's Neighbour: Sam Beckett.Laurent Milesi (ed.) - 2010 - Polity.
    _Zero's Neighbour_ is Hélène Cixous's tribute to the minimalist genius of the artist in exile who courted nothingness in his writing like nobody else: Samuel Beckett. In this unabashedly personal odyssey through a sizeable range of his novels, plays and poems, Cixous celebrates Beckett’s linguistic flair and the poignant, powerful thrust of his stylistic terseness, and passionately declares her love for his unrivalled expression of the meaningless ‘precious little’ of life, its unfathomable banality ending in chaos and death. Poised between (...)
