The text by Derrida entitled, in English, Touching On- Jean-Luc Nancy is a text about neither 'touching' nor Jean-Luc Nancy, in any easy sense. Derrida never really gets started with touch and goes out of his way to correct Nancy's use of the term 'deconstruction'. Following some exemplary cases of this in the book, this article demonstrates the technical differences between Derrida and Nancy that the former is keen to impress upon his readers.
