This book explores how deconstruction addresses the issue of futurity in the act of writing and translation. It focuses on three French expressions - venue, survenue, and voir-venir - taken from the work of Jacques Derrida, Jean-Luc Nancy, and Catherine Malabou, and offers fresh insights, proposing the possibility of a multiplicity of structures.
