Finlay, Marike
ISBN: 0253322790Category:


Sold Out

The postmodern response to the crisis of classical discourse (which called into question the possibility of a fixed, objective, absolute knowledge) was to declare the death of the subject and the end of meaning. Finlay seeks to recover for contemp discourse an alternative possibility by returning to the modernist project of linking ethics, politics and the discourse of knowledge. In the discourses of Robert Musil, the semiotics of C S Peirce and the pphysics of Werner Heisenberg, Finlay finds the basis for a new discourse of knowledge. Advances in Semiotics series.
