Summary/Abstract: In the article, I focus primarily on the issue of reading Kant`s aesthetic thought by Derri-da. Kant turns out to be Derrida`s ally. It is due to the hostility of both thinkers towards hermeneu-tic ideas. Furthermore, some threads of Kant`s thought lead us to more fundamental similarities between Kant and Derrida. The aesthetic judgments of taste may be compared to the judgments of a deconstructivist interpretation. What is more, Kant`s views are related to the ethical and exis-tential reflection characteristic of the late Derrida. Hence, Derrida`s controversial claim about the relation between Kant andFreud and Nietzsche can emerge.
