44 — 2 The Future of Critical Philosophy and World Politics1 Richard Beardsworth Introduction The legacy of Jacques Derrida’s thought is large, diverse and open. This chapter explores that legacy through the relation between critical philosophy and world politics. Its focus, which is on Derrida’s work where it prolongs the tradition of ‘critical philosophy’, produces an ambivalence: respect for the manner in which he prolongs Enlightenment thinking, but distance towards the way in which he ultimately relates philosophy to current objects of society.

25 He can do so for just the same reason that Kuhn can give a lively sense of how it must have felt, scientifically or conceptually speaking, for an astronomer to undergo the experience of paradigm-conversion from a Ptolemaic to a Copernican–Galilean worldview, or for a biologist to make the transition from a pre- to a post-Darwinian understanding of the origin and history of species. 26 For if that claim were valid – in whatever sense of ‘valid’ survived this wholesale revisionist move – then it would undermine Davidson’s entire case against conceptual-scheme talk (along with its cultural-relativist upshot) since there — 30 — Analytic Philosophy in Another Key could be no appeal to those logical constants which he takes to provide the strongest grounds for rejecting such talk.
