The author supplied a list of the provisional titles of the pieces in this book that have been imagined. At the end, after ‘Forgetting Well’, he defined the addition of something called ‘Last’. In line with this, this chapter seeks to investigate various kinds of duplicity and uncertainty in the English word and the conviction that there would be no ‘last word’ or ‘last words’. It tries to acknowledge the force of Hélène Cixous' suggestion that ‘no dead person has ever said their last word’. It is imagined that Jacques Derrida was alive again.
