The law of the oikos: Jacques Derrida and the deconstruction of the dwelling
University of Salerno, Italy
Keywords: dwelling; deconstruction; khōra; onto-topo-politics; space
This paper sketches out the essential lines of a work in progress that aims at following the path opened up by Derrida on the deconstruction of dwelling. I intend to show how Derrida's concern for architecture is strictly bound to the urgency of deconstruction of dwelling that inhabits his work from at least Plato's Pharmacy (1966) on. According to Derrida, both philosophy and architecture are subordinated to an archaic conception of dwelling, which still haunts our way of thinking and building the dwelling (territory, city, house) and, thus, affects the political dimension of our life.
