Summary/Abstract: The basic aim of this paper is to discuss some deconstructive views on the problem of communication. The death of an author is not quite Derrida’s theme, but it has an important role for explaining the field of communication. According to Derrida this kind of absence, together with absence of the receiver of message, structures every possible communication. This very structure is something that unable intention to be clear and present, both in oral and written way of exchanging messages. For the reason of discussing the problem of communication, attention will be focused on Derrida’s lecture “Signature Event Context” in which he addressed that topic in the most direct way. First, it will be examined the notions of writing and absence, and secondly, those of intention and context. It will be argued that Derrida is more interested in the new pragmatics, than in the bare criticism of some classical metaphisical views on language or recent linguistic theories.
