In his important 1977 essay “Signature Event Context,” Derrida critiques Austin by exposing the assumption of intentionality built into speech-act theory as impossibly invested in the “presence” of the source of utterance. Derrida makes use of written communication to point to the absence of the addressee for the writer, and of the writer for the later reader. Derrida argues that this schism evident in writing exposes the contingency of the performative, and the impossibility of confirming a unified source of meaning: “[T]he performative’s referent […] does not describe something which exists outside and before language.
