And perhaps what he admires about them is that in their work the force of dissemination is let loose; there is no attempt to resist or suppress it. The point rather is to allow language to disseminate ‘itself ’, to let meanings proliferate, to keep open as many possibilities as it is possible to keep open at once. Such a writing calls into question what ‘writing’ means, what ‘literature’ means, and while that questioning has a romantic history (see Lacoue-Labarthe and Nancy, Literary Absolute, and Lucy, Postmodern), the more vital source for Derrida is the writing of the modernist avant garde of the first half of the twentieth century or thereabouts.

The lesson of Dissemination, then, is that dissemination is not just what happens in literature (or as literature). Dissemination is not (simply) a dissemination 31 way of writing, and of course it is nothing but a way of writing. While this may indeed be the ‘lesson’ of Dissemination, nonetheless it is important to remember that dissemination is not a theme; it’s a practice. Dissemination is what happens. And it happens just as inexorably in philosophical discourse (unsettling and enabling the signification of truth) as it does in literary discourse.

For Derrida’s radical concept of democracy-to-come would always be ‘out of joint’ with that explanation; certainly it would be out of joint with time or history, for example, understood in terms of presence – as the past-present behind the present day that opens onto the present of tomorrow. Indeed the very teletechnological constitution of experience in the present day ‘obliges us more than ever to think the virtualization of space and time, the possibility of virtual events whose movement and speed prohibit us more than ever (more and otherwise than ever, for this is not absolutely and thoroughly new) from opposing presence to its representation, “real time” to “deferred time”, effectivity to its simulacrum’ (SoM, 169).
