About this book

This book presents developments of discourse analysis in France and applies its tools to key texts from five theorists of structuralism: Lacan, Althusser, Foucault, Derrida and Sollers. It pays special attention to enunciative pragmatics as a poststructuralist approach which analyzes the discursive construction of subjectivity.

Reviews

“Angermuller’s book develops enunciative pragmatics, a formal-qualitative approach that originates in the French tradition of discourse analysis. … Angermuller’s Poststructuralist Discourse Analysis is a unique addition to the Anglophone field of pragmatics and discourse analysis. … I expect Angermuller’s book to become an important input for the pragmatic study of language and discourse after structuralism.” (Jaspal Naveel Singh, Journal of Pragmatics, Vol. 88, 2015)

'A valuable addition to the discourse analysis literature in English, this book is a much-needed introduction to the enunciative pragmatics developed by French poststructuralists and an application of it in analysis of intellectual and academic discourse.' - Norman Fairclough, Lancaster University, UK

'Johannes Angermuller is one of the few authors I know who has evolved a robust model of 'theory into practice' for applying poststructuralist discourse analysis to written texts. He resolves the problem of a text's interpretive authority by analysing the 'markers of enunciation' readers follow in order to grasp the competing voices within any text. This is ground-breaking work in the field of discourse analysis.' - Judith Baxter, Aston University, UK
