Subject: RE: L'enonce /German influenced French guys..


Well, lets see ...who didnt read the book:-)))
In a place, which a cannot point right now, he sais
that this book is not theory, i.e. it does not have
deductive form, and in that moment the book is not
grown enough to become theory. So, a friend of mine
told me :"wait,this is archeaology, its not theory-
because the archeologist have his hands dirty, and the
theorist dont"
But there is a certain theory in that book:exactly,
the theory of l'enonces, and another part, which is
not exactly theory.
Derrida is here, as i mentioned - and is all the time
logo(locu)centrism springing from everyone in the
conference.
So thats why i think that the west is logocentric, and
the rest of the world is not so logocentric. For
example we , Bulgarians, we are more musical.
regards!
