Through a series of readings of Derrida, Marx, de Man, fiction, film and contemporary politics this book problematizes the idea of political articulation within the public realm with a view to interrogating and enriching the dominant notion of communism at work in theoretical writing today. It sees in theory a difficult yet essential gesture that ties the questioning of truth to a necessary undecidability that guarantees that truth and its relation to democratic engagement. The Communism of Theory is a riff on a phrase used by Blanchot to describe the curious social bond, means of affiliation and thought, that characterizes writing as testimony within a displaced community of critical readers. This book responds to key topics in contemporary thought and also turns the text of deconstruction in a direction that provokes a challenge to its own traditions.
