9788170463061: Seagull Books The Neutral

The neutral (le neuter), as barthes describes it, escapes or undoes the paradigmatic binary oppositions that structure and produce meaning in western thought and discourse these binaries are found in all aspects of human society, ranging from language to sexuality to politics for barthes, the attempt to deconstruct or escape from these binaries has profound ethical, philosophical and linguistic implications the neutral is comprised of the written texts from which barthes lectured and centres around 23 figures, also referred to as traits or twinklings, that are possible embodiments of the neutral (sleep, silence, tact, etc) or of the anti-neutral (anger, arrogance, conflict, etc) his lectures draw on a diverse set of authors and intellectual traditions, including lao-tzu, tolstoy, german mysticism, classical philosophy, rousseau, baudelaire, walter benjamin, and john cage barthes s idiosyncratic approach to his subjects gives the lectures a playful, personal and even joyous quality that enhances his rich insights in addition to his reflections on a variety of literary and scholarly works, barthes s personal convictions and the events of his life informed the course and content of the lectures, most prominently, as barthes admits, the recent death of his mother and the idea of mourning shape several of his lectures
