Abstract
There is an apparently paradoxical nature to resistance. Resistance is resistance against something, towards which it appears inimical. This resisted thing, however, requires such resistance in order to define itself and keep itself safe. Should it fail to do so, that which succeeds it will require resistance in turn. This paradox � a prevailing order requires that which is opposed to it, and that which overcomes is resisted in turn � occurs within time thought as a successive order of past, present and future moments. Two temporal displacements are evoked, not in order to resolve the paradox but to displace it and hint at an other strategy of resistance.
