Notes
1
Over the past years I have explored the line of argument of this chapter in several different settings. I would like to express my gratitude to all who have been willing to discuss my explorations with me.
2
'Unser Zeitalter ist das eigentliche Zeitalter der Kritik, der sich alles unterwerfen muss. ' (Kant quoted in Röttgers 1990:892).
3
In a sense, we could say that Apel uses the middle option of the trilemma, the logical circle, to find his way out (cf. Sas 1995:506-511).
4
In Apel's own words: '(dieses) Kriterium…ist in der Lage, unbestreitbare Präsuppositionen der Argumentation als reflexiv-letztbegründete Sätze aufzuzeichnen: d.h., Sätze, die keiner Begründung aus etwas anderem bedürrfen, weil man sie nicht verstehen kann, ohne zu wissen dass sie wahr sind' (Apel 1987b: 185).
5
Apel's point, to put it briefly, is that one cannot deny the characteristics of the ideal community of communication without falling into a performative contradiction. For this very reason all argumentation - which, as Apel argues, can only have force within a specific community of communication - is bound to the characteristics of the ideal community of communication.
6
Precisely for this reason, deconstruction is not antifoundational or postmetaphysical - at least not in the straightforward sense of these words.
7
Although I present these ideas in the context of a discussion about language, they have a larger significance than the field of language alone. For a brilliant application of these ideas on issues concerning politics and political theory, see Honig 1993.
8
Strictly speaking, there is only one way to avoid this mistake, which is by acknowledging that the differences that constitute the play of difference 'are themselves effects' (Derrida 1982:11). This means, then, that in the 'most classical fashion', that is, in the language of metaphysics, we would have to speak of them as effects 'without a cause' (Derrida 1982:12).
9
Over the past years a whole body of literature on Derrida's rather idiosyncratic use of the idea of justice has been published. Besides Derrida 1992, see also Derrida 1999; Critchley 1999; Biesta 1998b.
