Examples of Irony in the Humanities
- 106 Downloads
Writers from the Judaic persuasion, such as Derrida, speak of silence, a fundamentally unspoken aspect of irony. Carolyn Sharp wrote of this silence as seen in the Jewish Bible, both in terms of deconstruction and reconstruction (Sharp 2009, 7; 11). While Derrida underscored the term “deconstruction,” he rejected the term “reconstruction” because it implied a structure that had to be demolished. His work stands on a foundation without a beginning, holding no reality beyond the text, namely, “There is nothing outside of the text,” or “there is no outside-text” (Derrida, Of Grammatology 1974, 158).
