Derrida Response-The Concept of Order
One of Derrida's concepts that I find interesting is the idea of order. As a future teacher, I will encounter the effects of order in my own career because social control will determine which books I can and cannot teach in my classroom. Many great works of literature will be banned from the school I teach at due to potentially offensive content. In accordance to Derrida's ideas, such order will allow these great works of literature to be ignored, never giving my students an opportunity to study them and see the truths within.
