Editorial Reviews

Choice

Although its original applications were in linguistics and anthropology, structuralism has also cut across sociology, history, philosophy, psychiatry, criticism, the comparative study of arts and letters, classical studies, and other disciplines in the humanities and social sciences. The present volume is a full record of the proceedings of an international symposium... Participating were many of the leading figures of the structuralist dialogue—Barthes, Derrida, Lacan, Goldman, and the late Jean Hyppolite—and this is a useful demonstration of the movement, its aims and methods.

I have no doubt that, structuralist or not, anyone interested in literary critical theory or, more broadly, in the forms of human expressiveness will find the material presented here worth his attention.
