Literature and The Touch of the Real offers a critique of neo-Saussurean theories of the constitution of the world through language, or the essential divorce of language from the real. It offers a critical account of the contradictions and omissions of Saussure's Course in General Linguistics; a revisionist reading of Jacques Derrida; and an account of Ludwig Wittgenstein's concepts of 'grammar,' 'criteria,' 'aspect perception,' and 'language-games.'
David Schalkwyk is Associate Professor and Head of the Department of English at the University of Cape Town, South Africa.
