The ‘Jacques Derrida / Law and Culture’ International Chair of Philosophy was instituted in Turin with the support of Compagnia di San Paolo and of the University of Turin with the aim of honouring the memory of one of the greatest philosophers of the twentieth century.

The choice of this particular city was suggested by the fact that Derrida cultivated long-lasting relations of friendship and professional collaboration with professors teaching at the University of Turin, which also conferred him a degree honoris causa in Philosophy in 1998.

The subtitle ‘Law and Culture’ is tied to the fact that Derrida’s late work much revolved around the link between philosophy and the general topics of law, culture and justice, in accordance with the principle that ‘justice is not deconstructible’.

Every year, the directing committee selects an internationally acclaimed philosopher, jurist or sociologist to hold three lectures in Turin throughout the academic year. For the second edition the proposed thinker is Alessandra Donati (Università Milano-Bicocca).
