A linguagem, a verdade e o poder – ensaio de semiótica social

Moisés de Lemos Martins

2017 | Húmus


“The discourse constitutes the reason of this essay: the question of its propositional, performative and institutional nature is questioned, and the social functioning of some of its uses, pedagogical, scientific, religious
and political. It is analyzed the way in which discursiveness is conjugated today with rationality, namely, with pragmatic, aesthetic and technological rationality. The main idea argued in this book is that in the order of discourse we enact the truth to exercise power”. [Preface]
