Sample text

To establish a rigorous articulation between these two theorizations one must first consider to what extent these two diachronies can be treated as homologous; this is what I shall try to do in chapter I of the second part of this book. To leave Lacan aside for the moment, we should note that in Saussure the symbol is "the combination of three or four features which can part company at any moment" (D'Arco, p. 33) and is nothing more than"the ghost produced" (ibid) by this combination. 8). The legend drifts out of control.

It would seem that there is an articulation between the two theoretical systems: the "rudiment of a natural bond" which in Saussure constitutes the motivation of the symbol is explained by the "isomorphism" of the two planes. However, on one rather astonishing point the apparent similarity of the two theories is belied and revealed as only a partial overlapping. Algebra and chess, which are cited by Hjelmslev as examples of systems of symbols, could never be so considered in Saussure. This is shown quite unambiguously in the many celebrated comparisons of language with a game of chess (see CGL, 43; 23 / 125; 89 / 153; 110).

33) which is here ascribed to Dietrich is surely precisely the same as the status said by Saussure (see the texts quoted, p. 32 and p. 33) to be characteristic of the symbol. Thus Dietrich has the curious position of both being and not being a symbol. This is not, in fact, peculiar to him. For the concept symbol is set up to work as a vanishing point, destroying itself as soon as it is in place. Statements such as the following bear incontrovertible witness to this: "A symbol which can be explained as not having been originally a symbol is acceptable" (p.
