The Différance that Makes All the Difference: A Comparison of Derrida and Śaṅkara

The Différance that Makes All the Difference: A Comparison of Derrida and Śaṅkara This essay compares Åšaá¹…kara and Jacques Derrida on the issue of difference. This hermeneutical dialogue compares the two thinkers with respect to the following items: <i>différance</i> and nonduality; presence and trace; being and alterity; and truth, meaning, and reality. This essay intends to compare Åšaá¹…kara and Derrida on what the latter calls <i>différance</i> because it is a central notion in his postmodern philosophy, whereas nondualism is stressed by the former philosopher. Therefore, this comparison engages two philosophies that move in completely different directions. http://www.deepdyve.com/assets/images/DeepDyve-Logo-lg.png Philosophy East and West University of Hawai'I Press

Abstract

This essay compares Śaṅkara and Jacques Derrida on the issue of difference. This hermeneutical dialogue compares the two thinkers with respect to the following items: <i>différance</i> and nonduality; presence and trace; being and alterity; and truth, meaning, and reality. This essay intends to compare Śaṅkara and Derrida on what the latter calls <i>différance</i> because it is a central notion in his postmodern philosophy, whereas nondualism is stressed by the former philosopher. Therefore, this comparison engages two philosophies that move in completely different directions.
