Analogy and Anagram

Show Summary Details


This chapter describes how Derrida comments on the works of Plato, and how he relates analogy as coextensive with the history of Platonic metaphysics, and relating anagram as a philosophy of writing. It also explains why Derrida is so insistent in distinguishing Plato the Good from Khōra (an essay which focuses on “Plato's Pharmacy”).

Keywords: Jacques Derrida; Plato; Khora; Plato's Pharmacy
