87 Reading Derrida Reading Heidegger Reading Nietzsche ALAN D. SCHRIFT Purdue University The significance of Nietzsche for Derrida's philosophical project is readily apparent to any reader familiar with the texts of these two thinkers. While he has thus far refrained from a comprehensive examination of Nietzsche's thought, Derrida often avails himself of Nietzschean motifs, and Nietzsche is either named or implicated in virtually every work to which Derrida has appended his signature. The pervasiveness of Nietzsche's inscription in the Derridean text is attested to by a footnote subsequently added to his interview with J.-L. Houdebine and G. Scarpetta entitled "Positions." In the context of this footnote on historicism and truth, Derrida notes that "Nietzsche's name was not pronounced" during the interview and he adds that"on what we are speaking about at this very moment, as on everything else, Nietzsche is for me, as you know, a very important reference." 1 Elsewhere, he is more specific as to the ways in which the Nietzschean text functions as an "important reference." In OfGrammatology, for example, he credits Nietzsche with contributing " a great deal to the liberation of the signifier from its dependence or derivation with respect to the logos
