Truth Separate from Signification
perpetuates both the notion of linguistic skepticism and the concept of truth distinct and separate from the process of signification.
The "standard line" that I've been talking about isn't quite this. That "truth isn't separate from signification" is a standard post-modern line. It may not be entirely fair to say that Benjamin is truly pushing for this interpretation, but it's certainly fair to say that Benjamin at least points in this direction.
The question may be that I have to decide how much of this project will ride on what I consider a "proper" reading of Benjamin and how much of my own interpretation of Kafka and the Arcades Project I will allow through. I also need to watch my dependence on / interaction with Ziarek - I think she's more influential on my reading that I initially thought.
