The continual play or coming into being of signs or signifiers relates to Derrida’s central concept (or “nonconcept,” as he sometimes says) of différance. [T]he signified concept is never present in and of itself, in a sufficient presence that would refer only to itself. Essentially and lawfully, every concept is inscribed in a chain or in a system within which it refers to the other, to other concepts, by means of the systematic play of differences.
Descartes himself was strikingly utopian as he initiated the modernist philosophical project, seeking a firm epistemological foundation in a secular world effectively bereft of spiritual purpose.
