Summary/Abstract: The paper examines the relation (or the lack thereof) between Derrida and Habermas in the later stages of their thought. Habermas’ buzzword-accusation of postmodern philosophy as being “conservative” is taken as a symptom of misunderstanding, but also, in a sort of recomposition, as a possibility for a different, fruitful understanding of Derrida. Derrida’s anti-sovereignist and, in a sense, anti-political conception of deconstruction, as the resistance-faith and the supreme philosophical loyalty, is presented primarily in its application to the field of reflecting on the institution of the university and its future, as well as – to a lesser extent, and by analogy – to the question of the “new” Europe and its establishment. The affinity here does not appear so close, probable, or even desirable, as it has lately been presented and as it presumably was mutually desired.
