The Force of Language (Language, Discourse, Society)

The Force of Language (Language, Discourse, Society)

Jean-Jacques Lecercle, Denise Riley


this article illustrates how the philosophy of Language, if another way conceived, can without delay contain questions of political notion and of emotionality, and gives the sensible case of protecting suggestions opposed to abusive speech. This follows a large attention of the interior voice or internal speech as a attempt case for a brand new method of language, specifically as a manner of greatly rethinking the standard distinction among internal and outer via furnishing an account of ways we internalize speech. The book's center bargains a considerable critique of orthodox techniques to the philosophy of language from Chomsky and others; drawing on eu political proposal from Marx to Deleuze, it is going to flow past this inheritance to provide an explanation for and reveal its clean belief of language at work.
