“John David Ebert and French Post Modern Thought.” Today we again visit with Ebert to discuss Jacques Lacan (the unconscious is structured like a language and the ego is a fiction), Michel Foucault (the cross sectional analysis of Western society with its four ages), Gilles Deleuze (the rhizome vs. the arborescent; the virtuality of the Idea that incarnates in matter; assemblages, flows), and Jacques Derrida (the end of the logocentric age). Find out what “deconstruction” is and about new notions of the “self.” Find Ebert’s 20 books on Amazon, his essays on CulturalDiscourse.com, and his lectures on YouTube and Google+.
