This chapter examines the lack of mourning, or deuil, in Derrida's early work. It shows that Derrida's early work clearly registers the importance of psychoanalysis, and considers the possibility that the arrival of deuil ushered in a new ‘period’ of deconstruction. The rest of the chapter is devoted to a study of the two occurrences of deuil in Derrida's early work.

Keywords: mourning; deuil; early work; psychoanalysis; period of deconstruction
