We seem to be more concerned right now about whether we’re living in a virtual reality than whether we’re living in a text.
Also, note that it ignores phenomenology, existentialism, and critical theory, which were concerned much more with life and society than with language. On the other hand, I guess maybe that by 1967, post-... — Jamal
