The question of subjectivity concerns the close and the distant, the self and the other, the other from self, and the other of self. It is thus connected to the question of the sign. It calls for a semiotic approach because the self is itself a sign; its very own relation with itself is a relation among signs. This book commits to developing a critique of subjectivity in terms of the “material” that the self is made of, that is, the material of signs.
