This chapter discusses the concept of ‘scare-quotes’. It studies the function of ‘scare-quotes’ for suspending a potentially problematic term or concept. It then looks at Derrida's use of words that are already in quotation marks, and how these quotation marks can affect Derrida's Eighteenth Century.

Keywords:   scare-quotes, Eighteenth Century, quotation marks, problematic term
