Abstract or Description

A general theory of materialist reason depends upon a reconfiguration of the quasiopposition between Speculative Realism and poststructuralism. This is provided by recourse to structuralism – in particular, structuralism’s premise of the scienticity of its endeavour qua method and object. This reconfiguration of the received theoretical schema provides the means to establish (i) the materialist determination for language in general qua structure and sign, and (ii) a materialist account of the scientificity of reason.
