Pandora and Occam: On the limits of language and literature

Ruthrof, H. (1992) Pandora and Occam: On the limits of language and literature. Indiana University Press, Bloominton, U.S.A.

Abstract

Evoking Pandora and Occam as metaphoric corner posts in an argument about language as discourse, Horst Ruthrof brings analytic philosophy to bear on issues of Continental philosophy, with attention to linguistic, semiological, and semiotic concerns. In Ruthrof's analysis, Pandora and Occam illustrate the opposition between the suppressed rich materiality of culturally saturated discourse and the stark ideality of formal sign systems.
