Notes
  • In a now much read critique, Derrida claimed to show the weakness and the supposed contradictions of Lévi-Strauss's interpretation of writing and his characterization of modern industrial society by the pathology of written communication. Lévi-Strauss is tweaked, however, for everything at odds with what is normally understood as Lévi-Straussian analysis. It has been my contention to argue that, by misconstruing Lévi-Strauss's actual theoretical and epistemological contribution to general knowledge, Derrida's attack seems to be what exactly ‘lit-crit' deconstructionism is all about, which in the last analysis turns into an arrogant scholastics that only ignorance or deliberate misinformation could allow. Often serious scholars who are determined to understand the right meaning of a text, for instance, may give their benevolent approval to readers to engage in creative misreading and intellectual bricolage, but they also firmly launch a determined diatribe against the skeptical attitude of Derrida's tricks and gimmicks.
