Summary/Abstract: Somewhere around 1992 I stopped following Derrida’s work. This event didn’t occur abruptly, it still persists, and is delayed, repressed. I think that there was no special reason, while actually there were several. That was the time when the grand debate around Modernism/ Postmodernisam was coming to an end and when with the break-up of Yugoslavia the conditions in Macedonian society started to change. Expectations that democratic processes would enter all parts of society were interfered with through fear of war that was already going on in Croatia and in Bosnia. Communist oligarchies, transformed into political parties, illegal privatization, university structures building bastions around their chairs became the features of the new reality. All in all, those were the beginnings of the turbulent period that we fell into.
