  • Abstract Western political theories and sociological theories has a main stream which believes in the possibility of community and the possibility the of social order. While assuming the possibility of social order, the imagination was mostly order under an either thick or thin consensus of justice, which meant identity and common rules. While dealing with justice, liberalism, relativism, multiculturalism, pluralism etc. … all deal with differences and try to find a balance between differences and identifying juridical rules. How can we think of a community with paying respect to limitless difference? Would society become chaotic and anomic?
    This thesis tries to cope with justice in communities with differences. Trying to decipher Derrida’s deconstruction philosophy, I tried to draw the outline of how and why differences in community could communicate and share the world justly. A society based on difference needs a radicalizing sharing-out spirit, which should be based on a worldview of différance and deconstructive ethics (eg.: infinite responsibility, welcoming-other-hospitality, transactive friendships and justice). While keeping our differences, if we can sensible share out these differences, then a difference-sharing com-munity can be on the road (to-come). Practicing this can also be a realizing of Derrida’s mondialisation, New International and “deomcracy-to-come”.
    A totally common-sharing community can never be achieved, but it can be pursued toward. If we keep the track of deconstruction, we are on the road of letting it “to-come”.
