The Passion of an Endless Quotation
Lisa Block de Behar - Author
William Egginton - Translator
Christopher RayAlexander - With

Expanded edition with new chapters and updates to the translation and bibliography.

Borges cites innumerable authors in the pages making up his life’s work, and innumerable authors have cited and continue to cite him. More than a figure, then, the quotation is an integral part of the fabric of his writing, a fabric made anew by each reading and each re-citation it undergoes, in the never-ending throes of a w...(Read More)

The Passion of an Endless Quotation
Lisa Block de Behar - Author
William Egginton - Translation and introduction by

Lisa Block de Behar explores the trope of quotation in the works of Jorge Luis Borges.

“Barthes once wrote that the only way to read a work of passion is with another work of passion. What was true for Barthes is equally true for Lisa Block de Behar, whose three or more decades of scholarly activity have produced an imposing body of scholarship on the work of Jorge Luis Borges, but more importantly and more urgen...(Read More)

Institutional and Symbolic Transformations in the Post-Sartrian Era
Niilo Kauppi - Author

The first study to examine the conditions that led to the production of theories like "structuralism" and "poststructuralism."

"There is not, to my knowledge, any work in English or in French that does such a good job of integrating the historical and the structural. Kauppi's sociological perspective allows him to see better than most what ties together Foucault, Bourdieu, and Derrida; to see the commonalities of the dis...(Read More)
Philosophy of the Sign
Philosophy of the Sign (July 1995)
Josef Simon - Author
George Heffernan - Translator

This book presents a coherent philosophy of signs without postulating objects to which they refer or meanings which they express.
In this book, Simon wields Ockham's razor like a scythe to argue historically and systematically for a coherent philosophy of the sign as sign with an unprecedented minimum of ontological and semantical commitments. Deconstructing Plato, Frege, and Husserl, he accounts for signs without positing the existence ...(Read More)
Language and Style of the Vedic Rsis
Language and Style of the Vedic Rsis (November 1994)
Tatyana J. Elizarenkova - Author
Wendy Doniger - Editor

"This is an extraordinary book, which could have been written by no one but Tatyana Elizarenkova. It is extraordinary because it combines two disciplines that no one else would dream of combining, or be able to combine: the modern, trendy, obscure discipline of semiotics, and the ancient, dusty, arcane discipline of Vedic philology. It is even more extraordinary because it combines them in such a way that they become mutually illuminating, that t...(Read More)
