    Abstract:
    Jacques Derrida's deconstructive analyses expose the sense in which hermeneutic strategies fall prey to the “metaphysical exigency”: an unargued and concealed choice significant to the exposition of a philosophical position. The roots of this choice come most fully to light in the context of Derrida's differentiation of his views from those of Martin Heidegger. These differences contain two issues crucial to an understanding of the relationship between language, rhetoric, and communication: intersubjectivity and disclosure of being. The confrontation between deconstruction and hermeneutics on these issues brings into question the possibilities for and the valuation of communication while offering the basis for a thoroughly rhetorical understanding of language‐using.
