derrida plato’s pharmacy notes

432  a logos indebted to the father

Pater (in Greek) the chief, the capital, the good(s)-means all 3 at once

435  In all the cycles of Egyptian mythology, Thoth presides over the organization of death

Thoth extends or opposes by repeating or replacing- this messenger-god is truly a god of the absolute passage between opposites

“This god of resurrection is less interested in life or death than in death as a repetition of life and life as a rehearsal of death, in the awakening of life and in the recommencement of death.”
