Someone in our group had asked if Derrida had actually said anything like
"There is nothing besides the text." The phrase in French is "Il n'y a
pas de hors-texte" and can be found on p. 227 of _De La grammatologie_. I
can't seem to find it right now in the English.


In Of Grammatology, it is found on page 158. Is it "besides", or
"outside" the text? Anyway
