Derrida's idea of deconstruction stems from three phenomenological insights: (1) the insight into the experience of others; (2) the insight into the role of documentation for knowledge; and (3) the insight into temporalization. But the chapter argues that there is a fourth phenomenological insight, the insight in the endless expansion of reduction. It is this fourth insight that leads to the idea of power, an immense power. The repeatability of experience implies a potency that goes to infinity. The chapter looks at all of Derrida's major writings on Husserl: The Introduction to The Origin of Geometry; "Violence and Metaphysics"; Voice and Phenomenon; and Touching-Jean-Luc Nancy.
