About this product
- DescriptionThis book consists of a series of essays that all turn around questions of the address of speech or writing. They argue and demonstrate that meaning is t just a matter of the active intention of a subject (for example, speaker, writer, or other signatory of a meaningful act) but also of its reception at ather's address. The book's main concern is therefore with a theory of meaning and of action that is t centered on the intentional, self-conscious subject. The fifteen chapters explore this problematic within three broad areas: love, jealousy, and sexual difference; fiction or literature; and political or public discourse. The book engages principally with contemporary French thought and includes important new readings of work by Jacques Derrida, Helene Cixous, Maurice Blanchot, and Jean-Luc Nancy.
