En août 2007, le projet d’écrire l. a. biographie de Jacques Derrida s’est imposé à moi comme une évidence. J’avais ecu los angeles likelihood de le connaître un peu ; je n’avais jamais cessé de le lire.
Pendant trois ans, j’ai consacré l’essentiel de mon temps à cette recherche, avec une constante ardour. Je suis le optimal à avoir pu explorer l’immense archive accumulée par Derrida tout au lengthy de sa vie. J’ai retrouvé des milliers de lettres dispersées à travers le monde, rencontré plus de cent témoins, souvent bienveillants, quelquefois réticents. Derrida occupait ma vie, s’insinuant jusque dans mes rêves.
Parallèlement, dans de minuscules carnets, j’ai consigné les étapes de cette quête de plus en plus obsessionnelle : les rendez-vous et les lectures, les découvertes et les fausses pistes, les réflexions et les doutes. Trois ans avec Derrida est le magazine de cette aventure, en même temps qu’un éloge de ce style souvent mal targeté qu’est l. a. biographie.
