about this item

This book offers an important exploration of linguistic reference and representation through a Jungian understanding of symptom and symbol, using techniques including amplification, dream interpretation, and symbolic attitude. Drawing upon Derrida, Foucault and Rorty, it examines the common belief that words and their meaning are grounded purely in language, instead envisioning a symptomatic expression of alienation and collective dissociation. Chapters consider arguments from ecopsychology, phenomenology, depth psychology and myth, and ask us to re-imagine some of the most sacrosanct concepts of semiotics and the linguistic turn, and question the deconstruction of key perennial truths.
