This paper deals with a brief context of the development of Derrida's thoughts on politics and on the concept of nationalism or institutionalisation over the years, considered both as a contribution to political theory and as a political practice in its own right. In the more limited space of this paper I will briefly set out what I see as the key features behind Derrida's work on deconstruction of language reflecting the shades of deconstruction of nationalism, and what reasons could have affected his thought and post-modernism as well. The paper suggests, what I believe are the consequences of thinking about politics and about nationalism in the specific context of devolution of power.
