The Beast, the Tree and the Sovereign: Other in Lacan and Derrida
What is Derrida’s contribution to political philosophy? Derrida’s deconstruction makes questionable discourses that legitimize and justify the state, civil society, and law. At the first step, it is possible to take Derrida as a critic of the social contract theory. Actually acts constituting the social contract, such as transfer of right (Hobbes), renunciation of a right (Locke), and giving of oneself to a whole (Rousseau) are never historically realized events.
