Of course, Lacan would have dismissed Derrida as a bad case of Dear Da',
after a detour round Derider.

Pomo crap (that is the official term these days, isn't it? Haven't been in
many cloisters recently) is really just a bad case of 'auntology', or
perhaps in a less sexist and more existential mode 'aren'tology'.

Hey ho the piss and the wind, as Shakespeare sang.

Cheers,

Hugh
