Sample text

What is demanded of Providence Lost: ‘September 11’ and the History of Evil • 33 philosophers is a different kind of response that can try to articulate the singularity of September 11. For it is here that the conceptual challenge of the event resides. At the core of this ‘philosophical response’ to the unthinkability of September 11 is the Heideggerian theme of the singularity of ‘the event’ as such, which is a familiar theme in Derrida’s later writings, especially in The Politics of Friendship and Spectres of Marx.

Derrida spells the point out with echoes of his reflections on ‘possible’ and ‘impossible’ mourning in the Memoires for Paul de Man. The ‘special ordeal’ of September 11 as event, he now says in the dialogue, has as its tragic correlate not what has happened in the past but rather the precursory signs of a future, which will perhaps be worse than anything that has already taken place. Imagine, he says, that the Americans, and through them the entire world, had been told: what has happened is an awful thing; but it won’t happen again.

But distinctions have become blurred between what happened and the responses supposedly justified by what happened. It is at the times when clarity is most needed that it can be hardest to find. And there is of course for many of us the added confusion of a shocked intelligentsia that finds itself sequestered, contained, corralled as an allegedly outof-touch special interest group—the ‘chattering elites’, whose bewilderment is perhaps exacerbated by an uncomfortable suspicion that there may be some truth in the charge.
