"I am woman, and beautiful; my daughter, the law, is mad about me. I
speculate on my daughter. My daughter is mad about me; this is law. /
The law is mad, she is mad about 'me.' And across the madness of this
day, I keep this in sight. There, this will have been my self-portrait
of the genre. / The law is mad. The law is mad, is madness; but madness
is not the predicate of law. There is no madness without the law;
madness cannot be conceived before its relation to law. This is the law, the law is a madness."
Jacques Derrida, "The Law of Genre" Avital Ronell trans.
