Abstract

Roughly a decade has passed since the respective doyens of speech act theory and deconstruction confronted one another in an ill-fated, though by no means meaningless, attempt at communicating with one another in the Glyph papers. As the "exchange" developed its readers soon began to realise that John R. Searle was not going to grant deconstruction its fundamental critical claims, nor that Jacques Derrida was likely to abstain from poking fun at "Sari's" mechanical metaphysics, that the former could not but return to the Frege/Russell/ Austin/Ryle camp, while the latter was bound to settle back in his career in the lineage, to put it crudely, of Nietzsche, Husserl, Saussure and Heidegger. Thus the stand-off, pre-Hegelian, continues to mark philosophy.
