This chapter introduces the general logic of false starts. It first discusses the concept of ‘deferred reciprocity’ of reading and writing. It looks at a quasi-mechanical configuration of writing and reading and stresses that the very movement of deconstruction occurs when writing becomes generalised. The chapter also examines the law of ‘autronomy’.

Keywords: false starts; deferred reciprocity; quasi-mechanical configuration; writing and reading; movement of deconstruction; generalised writing; law of autronomy
