ABSTRACT
Chapter 1 of the book "Radical Atheism: Derrida and the Time of Life," by Martin Hägglund is presented. It explores philosopher Jacques Derrida's analysis on the autoimmunity of democracy and develops a deconstructive logic of identity. It describes how Derrida thinks that the democratic ideal is not free from autoimmunity, as the idea of democracy is autoimmune. It discusses Derrida's deconstruction of the logic of identity and philosopher Immanuel Kant's principle of noncontradiction.
