This book questions the book itself, archivization, machines for writing, and the mechanicity inherent in language, the media, and intellectuals. Derrida questions what takes place between the paper and the machine inscribing it. He examines what becomes of the archive when the world of paper is subsumed in new machines for virtualization, and whether there can be a virtual event or a virtual archive.
Derrida continues his long-standing investigation of these issues, and ties them into the new themes that governed his teaching and thinking in the past few years: the secret, pardon, perjury, state sovereignty, hospitality, the university, animal rights, capital punishment, the question of what sort of mediatized world is replacing the print epoch, and the question of the “wholly other.” Derrida is remarkable at making seemingly occasional pieces into part of a complexly interconnected trajectory of thought.

Review:

" A brilliant and succinct formulation of Derrida' s position on the topics that have most interested him in recent years. This volume will make a wonderful book because of its timeliness: much in this book helps one to understand 9/11 and its aftermaths, though it was written before the event. "Paper Machine" will serve as an admirable introduction to Derrida' s work." -- J. Hillis Miller, University of California, Irvine
