Hauntology, as a trend in recent critical and psychoanalytical work, has two distinct, related, and to some extent incompatible sources. The word itself, in its French form hantologiewas coined by Jacques Derrida in his Spectres de Marxwhich has rapidly become one of the most controversial and influential works of his later period.
Hauntology supplants its near-homonym ontology, replacing the priority of being and presence with the figure of the ghost as that which is neither present nor absent, neither dead nor alive. Attending to the ghost is an ethical injunction insofar as it occupies the place of the Levinasian Other: a wholly irrecuperable intrusion in our world, which is not comprehensible within our available intellectual frameworks, but whose otherness we are responsible for preserving.
Hauntology is thus related to, and represents a new aspect of, the ethical turn of deconstruction which has been palpable for at least two decades. It has nothing to do with whether or not one believes in ghosts, as Fredric Jameson explains: Spectrality does not involve the conviction that ghosts exist or that the past and maybe even the future they offer to prophesy is still very much alive and at work, within the living present: all it says, if it can be thought to speak, is that the living present is scarcely as self-sufficient as it claims to be; that we would do well not to count on its density and solidity, which might under exceptional circumstances betray us.
Abraham and Torok had become interested in transgenerational communication, particularly the way in which the undisclosed traumas of previous generations might disturb the lives of their descendants even and especially if they know nothing about their distant causes. What they call a phantom is the presence of a dead ancestor in the living Ego, still intent on preventing its traumatic and usually shameful secrets from coming to light.
One crucial consequence of this is that the phantom does not, as it does in some versions of the ghost story, return from the dead in order to reveal something hidden or forgotten, to right a wrong or to deliver a message that might otherwise have gone unheeded. On the contrary, the phantom is a liar; its effects are designed to mislead the haunted subject and to ensure that its secret remains shrouded in mystery.
The ideas of Abraham and Torok have renewed psychoanalytic theory and therapeutic practice dealing with transgenerational trauma and family secrets.
Literary critical work drawing on the thought of Abraham and Torok most frequently revolves around the problem of secrets, even if it generally neither achieves nor seeks the biographical confirmation found by Tisseron. Rand was instrumental in demonstrating the relevance of Abraham and Torok for literary criticism, and he also helped extend their work through his later direct collaborations with Maria Torok. This book offers what is still the best short account of Abraham and Torok's concept of the phantom and an attempt to develop a critical approach on the basis of it through readings of Conrad, Villiers de l'Isle Adam, Balzac, James and Poe.
Rashkin is keen not to set up a prescriptive model for interpretation, but to attend to the specificity of each individual text. Her readings track down secrets and bring them to light. She finds a possible solution in what she suggests is the secret drama of his Jewish origins, and this in turn is reflected in the narrator's unconscious desire to know the story of his own origins.
Despite the intellectual vigour of works by Rand, Rashkin and others, the direct impact of Abraham and Torok on literary studies has in fact been limited, perhaps because the endeavour to find undisclosed secrets is likely to succeed in only a small number of cases.
By contrast, Derrida's Spectres de Marx has spawned a minor academic industry. In fact, Derrida's spectres should be carefully distinguished from Abraham's and Torok's phantoms which is why the title of the present article maintains the distinction between them, even if the authors themselves are not always consistent. Du moins plus de ce qu'on croit savoir sous le nom de savoir.

Baltimore: Johns Hopkins UP, David Lodge. London: Longman, London: Macmillan, In Debating Texts.Derrida divides the book into four parts, which deal respectively with the development of the notion of responsibility in the Platonic and Christian traditions; the relation between sacrifice and mortality; the contemporary meaning of the story of Abraham and Isaac; and the relation between religious ideology and economic rationality, explicitly linking this book with "Given Time.
Derrida's main concern is with the meaning of moral and ethical responsibility in Western religion and philosophy. He questions the limits of the rational and the responsible that one reaches in granting or accepting death, whether by sacrifice, murder, execution, or suicide. Beginning with a discussion of Patocka's "Heretical Essays on the History of Philosophy," Derrida develops Patocka's ideas concerning the sacred and responsibility through comparisons with the works of Heidegger, Levinas, and, finally, Kierkegaard.
Derrida's treatment of Kierkegaard makes clear that the two philosophers share some of the same concerns. He then undertakes a careful reading of Kierkegaard's "Fear and Trembling," comparing and contrasting his own conception ofresponsibility with that of Kierkegaard, and extending and deepening his recent accounts of the gift and sacrifice.
For Derrida, the very possibility of sacrifice, especially the ultimate sacrifice of one's own life for the sake of another, comes into question. This work resonates with much of Derrida's earlier writing and will be of interest to scholars in anthropology, philosophy, and, of course, literary criticism.
In addition, given the emphasis on the work of Kierkegaard and on the role of religion in our thinking, it will be of particular interest to a new readership among scholars of ethics and religion. His works of philosophy and linguistics form the basis of the school of criticism known as deconstruction. This theory states that language is an inadequate method to give an unambiguous definition of a work, as the meaning of text can differ depending on reader, time, and context.

While continuing to explore questions introduced in "Given Time" such as the possibility, or impossibility, of giving and the economic and anthropological nature of gifts, Derrida turns to the notion of "responsibility" and the ultimate gifts of life and death.

A la memoria de Esther En esta frontera, en donde el deseo de permanencia se rebela contra la conciencia del fin absoluto, nos encontramos con un documento donde el vivo habla desde su tumba. Me pide que les agradezca. Parece un regalo para aquellos que lo sobreviven, una manera de darles su muerte. Es un espectro que habla desde un papel, es la voluntad de una conciencia ausente, la voz de un recuerdo que regala su olvido.
Ante estas solicitudes que llegan de ultratumba, los amigos tampoco quedan bien parados. No es otra forma de hacerle un culto al muerto. Las dudas como elementos fundantes del propio razonamiento. Como una parada a mitad de camino, para colocar todas las piezas que han resultado de estas reflexiones, nos detendremos para hacer un inventario. Continuaremos el itinerario, pero avanzando en el sentido inverso, buscaremos recolocar las piezas en busca de ese sentido trascendente al que debe apuntar el desmantelamiento.
Desde esta perspectiva pensar que el fallecido no se ha extinguido del todo le quita a la muerte su ser muerte. La memoria del difunto la destruye porque le quita su sentido definitivo. Que el fin no lo es del todo. No hay responsabilidad sin la muerte y no hay fin sin ser para los otros.
Nadie parece poder escapar, porque si el moribundo no cumple, la deuda les queda a sus seres queridos. Como espacio sin lugar que acoge a todos los exiliados de la historia, de todas las culturas, que viven y mueren ocultando sus secretos. Notas  J. Roberto Castro por haberme facilitado este material.

The precise chronology of Derrida's work is difficult to establish, as many of his books are not monographs but collections of essays that had been printed previously. Virtually all of his works were delivered in slightly different form as lectures and revised for publication.
Some of his work was first collected in English, and additional content has been added to some collection with the appearance of English translations or later French editions. The latter essays were collected first in English, partially because the last of the two was written in response to a questions put in a letter from Gerald Graff.
