I am searching for a text I've since lost that I believe is a transcription of a conversation between someone and Derrida. The context may have been Heidegger's particular conception of philosophy and its incompatibility with the existence of / belief in God. I remember it as a lengthy quote.

    Could be Violence and Metaphysics as part of his critique of Levinas. Though I'm thinking that there it will be more about ontotheology and the term God (thus the reference to existence). – virmaior Feb 28 '15 at 0:50
  • Unfortunately I clearly remember that it was an interview where Derrida referenced Heidegger but made a general statement saying that philosophy, or maybe deconstruction, and the belief in a God are irreconcilable and incompatible. – Kyle Dec 10 '15 at 12:29
  • problematic comments dealt with. They have, as far as I can tell, absolutely nothing to do with your question. – virmaior Dec 25 '15 at 2:48

I don't recall Derrida making that statement but the discussion of Augustine, Heidegger, Destruction/Deconstruction, and prayer comes up in Circumfession. Maybe this is what you are looking for: http://www.ubu.com/sound/derrida.html
