Is there a line between literature and philosophy? In the 1960s and early 1970s, the French Post-Structuralists did much to dissolve these categorical distinctions. By articulating French Post-Structuralist approaches to text and language as discourse, it becomes possible to identify the literature/philosophy distinction and thereby question it.

In The Textual Dimensions of Post-Structuralist Thought, Anne Reilly examines these boundaries, as well as the distinction between poetic and nonpoetic language, by examining the writings of Ferdinand de Saussure and their influence on the Russian Formalists as well as the writings of Jacques Dirrada and Michael Foucault. Ms. Reilly also examines the metaphysical character of Post-Structuralist thought, showing how it continues the Aristotelian tradition. Ms. Reilly goes on to consider the Post-Structuralist argument that Nietchean aesthetics, a central notion of Post-Structuralism, confronts the modern reliance on the Platonic notion of truth and the Cartesian concept of subject.

The Textual Dimensions of Post-Structuralist Thought examines these concepts and more, providing a stimulating intellectual, literary, and philosophical discourse that will both challenge and enlighten the thoughtful reader.
