Sample text

My book celebrated the cooperation of the reader insofar as every text tries to provide every “empirical” reader with instructions for becoming the Model Reader of that text. If these were my premises, it was inevitable that I had to discuss deconstruction, at least insofar as my premises related to an old polemical 40 Weakening Metaphysical Power assertion of Valéry according to which there is no true sense of a text. I have often repeated that my antideconstructive critique did not aim directly at Derrida – for whom deconstruction was a method of interrogation of philosophical texts.

In other words, the World as the totality of being is something that secretes in its periphery (or in its centre, or here and there in its interstices) a part of itself as a means to interpret itself. Thus the Mind could be represented not as if put before the World but as if contained by the World, and it could have a structure that enabled it not only to talk of the world (which is opposed to it) but also of itself as a part of the world and of the same process whereby it, a part of the interpreted, may serve as interpreter.

In order to escape such a predicament, in my The Role of the Reader I outlined a dialectic between intentio operis and intentio lectoris that represented a semiotic way of reproposing the dialectic between Work and Opening. Such had been my position about the interpretation of texts. But these convictions could only bring me to widen this vision of the interpretation of texts to the world in general. And, moreover, I could not do otherwise because I was becoming closer (at least from the beginning of the seventies) to Peirce’s theory of interpretation.
