Subject: Kristeva's Les samourais

This is a multi-part message in MIME format.

Many months ago I promised someone a full list of the various famous
French theorists who appear in Kristeva's Les samourais (under different
names).  Please see the attachment (text.only) below.  This is not a
full listing, but I've done as best I could.  I would appreciate anyone
else adding to the list!  It makes The Samurai a much more interesting
read!  (as gossip, anyway).

1 This list was ascertained from my own research, though the clues are evident to anyone with a background in Contemporary French theory.  Parentheses indicate uncertain connections between the literary character and actual persons.
