System and Structure: Essays in Communication and Exchange.
Wilden, Anthony
This book ranges widely over the fields of communication theory, Freudian and Lacanian psychology, and Levi-Straussian anthropology. The primary goal of the book is an examination of the structural and analogic patterns within human communication and exchange. This examination involves discourses upon the computer compared to the human nervous system, the implications of the "double bind" theory, Piaget's genetic structuralism, model study of open and closed systems, and the social and political implications of semiotic systems which tend to oppress people (primarily the systems of organized science and psychology). The book is, in large part, a study of the ways existing languages and systems of thinking thwart mankind's free growth toward its full potential. (CH)
