Jacques Derrida | Unemployed Philosophers Guild
The word "puppet" derives from the Latin "pupa," which means "girl" or "doll." The assignation of the term "puppet" to this likeness of Derrida is therefore problematic, for it (and he) is neither "girl" or "doll" in the traditional sense. The resulting gender confusion must then be acknowledged as one employs this Jacques Derrida finger puppet in any performative act. Oh, and there's a magnet in its head so you can stick it on your refrigerator too.
