Â Â attempts to privilege and generally impose the authorâ s perspective as an expression of a universal. It thereby closes off the further or wider interpretation that is actually an inevitable consequence of the location of language in time and spaceâ what Derrida calls writingâ s difference (see the discussion in Wood, 1985:18â 41; Surette, 1994:1â 19).
