Abstract (in English): 

In this book, Jacques Derrida questions the transition from paper to the virtual. He looks at the processes that take place between the paper and the machine inscribing it. This inclueds archivization, writing machines, and the mechanicity inherent in language and the media. Derrida theorizes what becomes of the archive when the world of paper is subsumed in new machines for virtualization, and whether there can be a virtual event or a virtual archive.
