Jacques Derrida says that philosophy has always assumed logo centrism. What is this? Derrida insists that all language and thought is imbued with ‘difference.’ What is this?

3. Richard Rory says that we should be ironists about all sorts of things, such as reality. In other words, we should never assert that we know things, or that we are correct.
