Resume: Jacques Derrida and Aurelius Augustinus have been traditionally thought to be representing the opposing tendencies: the former attracted attetion at what he called the phonetic writing or logocentrism and the latter followed the onto-theological approach which was based on the idea of the World being created by Word. However, the analysis of relations between an item and a sign, designator and designatum, writing and sound, as described in Augustinus’ diaologue ‘About the Teacher’, shows that both philosophers had much in common.
Keywords: philosophy, item, sign, writing, sound, designatum, meaning, nothing, logo-centrism, grammatology.
