4. “In poststructuralist theory, a concept most closely associated with Derrida, for whom it refers to the mythical status of the supposed hub of any system of ideas (see also deconstruction; différance; transcendent signified). This derives from the point voiced by Socrates in Plato’s Phaedrus (c.370 bc) that the absence of the writer from a (circulated) text leaves it open to misinterpretation, in contrast to presence in face-to-face interaction (see also phonocentrism). This is in fact a feature of all mediated communication, where the participants are spatially and/or temporally separated.” – https://www.oxfordreference.com/
