Poststructuralism: A Very Short Introduction (repost)

Catherine Belsey, "Poststructuralism: A Very Short Introduction"
English | 2002 | ISBN: 0192801805 | 128 pages | EPUB | 2.3 MB

Poststructuralism changes the way we understand the relations between human beings, their culture, and the world. Following a brief account of the historical relationship between structuralism and poststructuralism, this Very Short Introduction traces the key arguments that have led
poststructuralists to challenge traditional theories of language and culture. While the author discusses such well-known figures as Barthes, Foucault, Derrida, and Lacan, she also draws pertinent examples from literature, art, film, and popular culture, unfolding the poststructuralist account of
what it means to be a human being.
