Structural break

September 7, 2017

Emma Rees rightly pleads for a summer holiday away from “Lacan, Kristeva and Foucault too…” (“Crumbs of comfort 
on the beach”, 24 August). Don’t we all need a break as well from Saussure, the father of them all? Although, of course, in Malcolm Bradbury’s view, we might not be saussure.
