Roland Barthes: The Paradigm, the Neutral, Tao

Article

Keywords: the Neutral, paradigm, structuralism, daoism, figures of the Neutral

Abstract

[in Russian]

In one of his last courses in College de France, Roland Barthes returns to the structuralist notion of paradigm. But this time his goal is to outplay the paradigm, introducing the third term, that of the Neutral. In the article we shall try to capture Barthes’ movement towards the Neutral, the way that is probably never going to end, because for Barthes the way, Tao, is the goal in itself: in fact, not even the Neutral, but Desire for the Neutral (unattainable, like any desire) is what motivates his course.
