The Structural Allegory: Reconstructive Encounters with the New French Thought


The Structural Allegory is an important contribution to the evaluation of both structuralist and post-structuralist French social theory. What is particularly exciting about this volume is that the ten contributors represent a disciplinary breadth that is as far reaching as the impact of the new French thought itself. In addition, several authors (D'Amico, O'Neill, Levin, and Fekete) challenge directly the structuralist and post-structuralist failure to address the historicity of social formations, the constitutive dimension of human agency, and domination. However, all the contributors argue convincingly that post-structuralism has something to offer through its antiempiricist and anti-rationalist framework that brings into question the presuppositions of western epistemology
