Discourse Analysis in France. A Conversation
Keywords:(French) Discourse analysis, Michel FOUCAULT, Michel PÊCHEUX, linguistics, social sciences, pragmatics, Critical Discourse Analysis
AbstractIn this interview, the linguist Dominique MAINGUENEAU sketches the history of discourse analysis in France. After discussing the intellectual background in which it emerged, he turns to certain key figures of French discourse analysis like Michel FOUCAULT and Michel PÊCHEUX. Special attention is given to the role of Michel FOUCAULT, who has crucially influenced his research on discursive scenography and self-constituting discourses. Concerning FOUCAULT's methodological impact MAINGUENEAU emphasises the problem of "enunciation". A French version of discourse pragmatics, enunciative linguistics focuses on the way texts mobilise their contexts. URN: urn:nbn:de:0114-fqs0702218
