I'm a newcomer to philosophy, I've been recently introduced by the vector of an English course.
In studying various works, I'm having particular difficulty with the following statement from Derrida's Aporias: Dying—Awaiting (One Another at) the "Limits of Truth", pages 65 and 66, which appears, in quoted form, in some of our study material:
In order to wait for the other at this meeting place, one must, on the contrary, arrive there late, not early.
I've tried to uncover the meaning here, but I'm struggling to make sense of what this is saying. I'd be very grateful if someone could explain (in the simplest terms possible) what this is about.
