Summary/Abstract: The purpose of this contribution is to reflect upon institutional and political sense of a local philosophy student group asking after Jacques Derrida when he died. The iniciative came in a philosophical context lacking, since 1970s, any serious reception of Derrida’s theoretical work by eather philosophical currents (marxist, analytical or hermeneutical), and in the very asking after Derrida the iniciative both fails to recognize its real philosophical target and succedes in reveiling the void of local philosophy as event of thought. It is, such is at least the message of this “postcard”, just this function of Derrida’s being mere name that might serve to re-organize a self-understanding of young philosophers.
