when I go through the above in just two pages I know there s a problem there And yet this is exactly what I feel when I read poststructuralism related authors No most of them don t like to be called poststructuralist Sadly this very short introduction suffers the same problemBelsey manages to be clearer than the thinkers she presents in the book especially in Chapter 3 Difference and Desire Despite Mismatch her and my best effortsowever in the other chapters I felt sharply oscillating between Well this is pretty obvious and Well this doesn t make sense at all another feature that the book shares with the founding texts of poststructuralismIf a school of thought keeps its confused and obscure style even in the text of a very short introduction for lay people it seems only fair to conclude once again that either these authors don t Going All the Way Planning for a Marriage That Goes the Distance have anything substantial to say or theyave discovered an esoteric truth that they

Derrida Lacan and Zizek Sex Art Politics Literature and Ethics are some of the depicted themes Lewis Carroll s dialogue between Alice and Humpty Dumpty and the case of Abel s gender changing confronts the idea of meaning as given in advance After poststructuralism meanings are not given but can be changed or deconstructed Post structuralism doesn t deprive us of the power to change Power is movable There are conflicts and we choose sides Derrida s last works are about Ethics in a world without foundation truths Saussure s concept of signifier is the basis of differance not difference guiding the idea of a world without foundation truths Although Reason and the laws of nature can be taken as new forms of metaphysical foundations Poststructuralism theory thinks there is no ultimate absolute reality If value emanate from language and Language divides the world differently from culture to culture Then no appeal to a grounding reality That is the uestion of XXI century values can change since values are different from themselves This idea comes from Saussure s signifiers as difference And lacanian can change since values are different from themselves This idea comes from Saussure s signifiers as difference And lacanian is in debt with Saussure as difference is central desire is always unconscious the first object is always lost to the subject The mother is not a person but a

peter singer and 
Singer and The TM Techniue An intro Transcendental Meditation Teachings Maharishi Mahesh YOgi Arkana his clarity of concept context and evolution of thought process were probably theallmark of this VSI series and promptly picked up some of the topics that Wikipedia just can t explain to me like this one postmodernism critical theory etc I was dismayed to find that Peter Singer s lucidity was the exception rather than the norm You d think understanding poststructuralism might need an understanding of structuralism first You d be wrong You d think given its emphasis on social construction there would first be a look at the istorical political and social environments THAT BIRTHED IT AS A PHILOSOPHY birthed it as a philosophy movement You d be wrong This entire VSI is a garbled mess that as the stench of simple ideas presented with complexity like the irritating disciples of Derrida that she mentions The ideas are complex sure but a little patience is enough to figure out individual passages What s exhausting though is finding any sort of unifying clarity of thought that links all the different passages applications to various social institutions and beliefs the main proponents This is as good as a collection of Wikipedia articles on each of the main personalities of this movement with no effort taken to understand this with the depth that it deserves that might make the reading than the sum of its parts If that wasn t bad enough the writing is drenched with the political leanings of the author straw manning of opposing points and some really annoyingly superficial You may argue picking the weakest possible arguments in order to defend the point Again maybe I misspeak when I say author maybe the writing itself drenches us with its fully intended political leanings But it is very jarring to read such a Bodies in the Bog and the Archaeological Imagination hopelessly propagandizing blinkered presentation of what should be a very enlightened philosophy of skepticismumility personal meaning creation and radical.
