'Postmodernists' 'concern' for the 'texts'


I realise that the source is secondary, but following our recent
discussion, I was interested to read that Derrida once said:

>"I never cease to be surprised by critics who see my work as a declaration that there is nothing beyond language,
> that we are imprisoned in language; it is, in fact, saying the exact opposite. The critique of logocentrism is above
> all else the search for the "other" and the "other of language"".

Does this say something different than I read in your piece?
