Structure: A Counterhistory of Twentieth-Century French Philosophy
This book length study seeks to examine a nodal point in twentieth-century French philosophy, namely the late 1960s moment generally considered the turning point or break between “structuralism” and “poststructuralism.” It argues that the narrative of the break obscures an important but now occluded ontological thought of structure developed in the 1950s and 1960s semi-independently by Claude Lévi-Strauss, along with so-called poststructuralists Jacques Lacan and Gilles Deleuze.
