Long a topic of shrewd but unverified speculation, the prospect that Moby-
Dick underwent a radical transformation in manuscript has received new

collectivity: “Who are we?” and “How many are we?” These questions are
borrowed from Derrida’s Politics of Friendship and Spivak’s Death of a
Discipline but different iterations can be found in the work of others:
Bataille, Blanchot, Deleuze, Nancy. If a consideration of community and
collectivity has to start necessarily by asking about the identity of its
members and by calculating their number, the answers to these questions
