Summary/Abstract: "The trace I leave to me means at once my death, to come or already come, and the hope that it will survive me. It is not an ambition of immortality; it is fundamental. I leave here a bit of paper, I leave, I die; it is impossible to exit this structure; it is the unchanging form of my life. Every time I let something go, I live my death in writing. An extreme process; we exert ourselves without knowing whom exactly the thing we leave behind is confi ded to. Who is going to inherit, and how? It is a question that one can pose oneself today more than ever." Jacques Derrida, The Last Interview
