Show Summary Details


This chapter simply defines the term project by clarifying its meaning. The project is understood as essentially productive — it elaborates the models of production. Producing is included in the project whose meaning and purpose is being illuminated. Basically the project is a question of strategy whose basis is something that must be produced. The importance of the project consists in the anticipating word and this word constructs its own objective and makes available its pursuit. This chapter also describes the grammatology of the project as being a contemporary philosophy, as it is constituted by the will of taking the possibility for granted of controlling-dominating the random itself. The project also becomes the key term in the period of rationalization and secularization as it follows a long “meanwhile” of hard struggle, at whose center lies the deconstruction of the Christian Republic.

Keywords: models of production; strategy; grammatology; philosophy; rationalization; secularization; Christian Republic
