An essay is presented which analyzes the appropriate factor to be used in order for postmodernist philosopher Jacques Derrida to be remembered in the study of philosophy. It explains the philosophical concept of memory which is a matter of displacement and of substitution since the object to be remembered is transplanted from one setting to another. It also emphasizes that memorization and the recollection of images are considered analogous to writing and reading.
