And most of his remarks on Islam are made in response to questions raised in a context determined by the panic, horror, and fear created by 9/11, that is, when Islam really started to look like a threat to Western culture. Indeed, very little work has been done to explore the possible, even virtual relations between Derrida and the Islamic philosophical tradition. Therefore, our Companion contains an essay by a Muslim theologian Recep Alpyağıl. In his essay, Alpyağıl attempts to compare undecidability in Derrida with the undecidable elements in the philosophical discourse of Ibn ‘Arabi.

It emancipates the living beings from natural determinism, that is, from the reign of bare life, toward an intersubjectivity that does not exclude the non-human animals. Nicholas Royle also speaks of animality by way of Derrida’s approach to poetry. In Derrida’s “The Double Session,” the guiding thread for this reflection on poetry comes from one line of Mallarmé: Un coup de dés jamais n’abolira le hazard (“a roll of the dice will never abolish chance”).

Derrida is interpreted as responding to Luce Irigaray and the second wave feminism by affirming sexual difference beyond the division into two, male and female. Since Of Grammatology, Derrida emphasized that the hierarchical opposition between man and woman is constitutive of metaphysics and could be found as intricately bound with other oppositions. He also pointed to the fact that the metaphysical apparatus is phallocentric. In late Derrida, the emphasis is again on the hierarchical relation between oppositions.
