Abstract

In his 1972 reply to Derrida’s essay “Cogito and the History of Madness”, Foucault questions, among other things, the aptness of Derrida’s philosophy to “think the singularity of the event.” Viewed in the light of the subsequent developments of Derrida’s thought, Foucault’s line of attack may appear completely off the mark.Yet, the aim of the paper is to show that, all appearances notwithstanding, Foucault’s provocation has more bite than it is suspected and it is worthy of our attention and interest today –not just from a historical perspective
