This history', Derrida goes on to write, 'was also a history of literature [une histoire de la litterature] if one accepts the idea that literature was born of it and died of it, the certificate of its birth as such, the declaration of its name, having coincided with its disappearance, according to a logic that the hymen will help us define'. 21 At the same time, Derrida argues, it has also marked another history, the history of the spatio-temporal differing and deferring of the between (the hymen), of what remains 'between literature and truth' (entre litterature et verite)22 What is perhaps most striking here is that for Derrida le trait accounts for this history of the difference between a literature of truth and a literature between truth.

Given that the so-called dialogue in the Parmenides is essentially a monologue, it is perhaps impossible to choose between a serious veneration and an ironic deflation when Socrates goes on to say, 'I remember a very noble discussion in which Parmenides employed the latter of the two methods' (217b). It is precisely the indeterminacy of the relationship between Plato and Parmenides as a question of style and language that Derrida alludes to in the opening pages of 'Violence and Metaphysics'. 72 As Derrida will suggest, it is a testament to the difficulty of determining the exact relationship between Plato and Parmenides that in the Sophist the hunt for the nature of the sophist turns into a going beyond Parmenides.

74 The complexity of this passage is critical to understanding Derrida's reading of Levinas and his starting again with Plato. To go beyond Parmenides is to argue that not-being is and that it is not 'unutterable, unspeakable, indescribable', but 'distributed over all things in their relations to one another'. In other words, going beyond Parmenides is to say at once that the other is - and that the other is not an absolute other, but a relative other in relation to being. By saying that the other is, the Stranger is reaffirming the inescapability of being.
