Building on the previous chapter, this chapter traces the problems surrounding autobiography after structuralism in texts that revolve around malfunctioning eyes. Since antiquity, the sense of sight is at the center of occidental epistemology, so there is little surprise in the eye being a site where philosophical problems are negotiated. Nietzsche’s near-blindness drove him out of the university. In Derrida, the blinking eye is one of the first figures in which the metaphysics of presence is deconstructed. Hélène Cixous’s eye operation marks a conversion so extreme that the narrator’s position is grammatically dispersed.
