Poststructuralism and Deconstruction: A Mathematical History
Keywords:Poststructuralism, Derrida, Philosophy of Mathematics
AbstractExplaining his love of philosophy, Slavoj Å½iÅ¾ek notes that he ‘secretly thinks reality exists so that we can speculate about it’. This article takes the view that links between mathematics and continental philosophy are part of reality, the reality of philosophy and its history, and hence require speculation. Examples from the work of Jacques Derrida and Henri Poincaré are discussed.
