Under such circumstances, the symbolic seemed to promise a more adequate mode of representation, one that better addressed this desire to overcome dualism. Where Halmi dispassionately searches for the genealogical sources of this emphatic ideal of the identity of sign and thing, critics of Romanticism have focused on its fantasmatic or mystifying dimensions. ” Paul de Man considered all writing an attempt to come to grips with the insurmountably temporal nature of our condition, and he judged allegory especially suited to revealing this situation.
If we follow hints from Pierre Bourdieu and François Dosse, the answer would seem to be yes. Thus, in his major work on the history of structuralism, Dosse follows Roland Barthes in suggesting that Saussurean linguistics heralds a democratic model insofar as the conventional nature of the sign establishes a homology between the linguistic contract and the social contract. “An entire lineage here refers to structuralism’s enduring rootedness,” writes Dosse. ” The attempt to link structuralism to Romanticism hits a snag the moment we recall a distinction made by Kant, whose role in the Romantic theory of the symbol was instrumental.
In the early 1950s, when Maurice Merleau-Ponty set out to chart the course of Marxism in the twentieth century, he titled his important book Adventures of the Dialectic. In echoing Merleau-Ponty, I want to suggest the analogous need to mark out the course of post-Marxism. But I also want to highlight yet another ambiguity in the history being explored here. What is, in fact, the relationship between the dialectic and the symbolic? Then again, the notion of semiotic value is strictly relational, and that might suggest dialectics; but semiotic value seems to lack the dynamic transformative relationships characteristic of dialectical thought.
