Example text

Without which (for want of being stupid, of being able to be) I would not be able to be affected (pained, struck) by the stupidity of others, or to have shame for myself (as if their stupidity necessarily and immediately becomes mine): without that, I could not be made ashamed. ’31 This is the question of individuation and disindividuation. If we are able to be stupid, it is because individuals individuate themselves only on the basis of preindividual funds (or grounds) from which they can never break free: from out of which, alone, they can individuate themselves, but within which they can also get stuck, bogged down, that is, disindividuate themselves.

71 The narcissistic psycho-centrism of this generation (a narcissism that is no doubt not equally distributed between the employees and workers of the ‘lyrical’ generation – and one has the impression that the signatories are mainly the children of teachers, intellectuals, artists, therapists or executives who have come through the protest movement, in brief, the generation of those sometimes referred to as ‘bobos’)72 rendered the education of the downgraded generation both impossible and non-existent: You were wild parents.

These purely factual and ‘stupid’ limits are insurmountable: this impossibility of thinking bêtise in English other than as stupidity is tied to the idiocy of idioms, and to their irreducible idiomaticity, which is always also in some way their facticity as insurmountable bêtise or stupidity – for example, all those mistakes [bêtises] due to errors of translation that mask the impossibility of translation. Derrida meditated on all this on the basis of a fault [défaut]: the shibboleth, that faulty pronunciation that afflicts the Ephraimites, just as, indeed, Moses can speak only by stuttering.
