The Force of Language (Language, Discourse, Society)


This text illustrates how the philosophy of Language, if differently conceived, can directly incorporate questions of political thought and of emotionality, and offers the practical case of defensive strategies against abusive speech. This follows a broad consideration of the inner voice or inner speech as a test case for a new approach to language, in particular as a way of radically rethinking the usual contrast between inner and outer through furnishing an account of how we internalize speech. The book's core offers a substantial critique of orthodox approaches to thephilosophy of language from Chomsky and others; drawing on European political thought from Marx to Deleuze, it will move beyond thisinheritance to explain and demonstrate its fresh conception of language at work.
