Summary/Abstract: The author analyses the situation of the “end of philosophy” proclaimed by Martin Heidegger. This situation is investigated from the point of view of both Freudian psychoanalysis and Derridian différance. The point of departure of the investigation is the concept of uncanny analized by Freud in his essay “Das Unheimliche”. According to Freud, an uncanny feeling can be experienced by meeting one’s ghostly double (der Doppelgänger). In such meeting, the uncanny feeling arises from the experience of ambiguity of life and death. The similar ambiguity may be observed in Derridian différance which is neither a word nor a concept but rather the performative act creating the situation in which one can trace the ambiguity of explication and im-plication as the two different strategies of the tracing of meaning in the medium of text which is neither alive nor dead.
