This chapter addresses how Derrida’s question of Europe can be brought into sharper relief with late Edward Said’s (2003) lecture on Freud and the non-European. I draw a lesson from the fact that ‘late’ Said had become exercised by the question of Europe or ‘what is called Europe?’ from a different angle than his earlier work Orientalism (1979).
