Book Description

May 18, 1994 0415908183 978-0415908184
"Textualities" is both an account of recent developments in continental philosophy and a demonstration of philosophy as a distinctive theoretical practice of its own. It can be read as a presentation and evaluation of major figures from Heidegger and Merleau-Ponty to Focault and Derrida, with detailed accounts of Nietzsche, Sartre, Levi-Strauss, Barthes, Blanchot and Kristeva as well. Linked with the formulation of a hermeneutic semiology, "Textualities" assesses the texture of theory, in particular a theory of textuality, and offers juxtapositional deconstructive readings of alternative textualities, such as "autobiographical textualities", "photobiographical textualities", "visible textualities" and "institutional textualities".

Textualities is a book to be read both as an historical journey into the recent philosophy of he text and as an effort to conciliate theoretical directions that have sometimes seemed to be at war, or which have simply become dated..
