La Septième fonction du langage

From the prizewinning author of HHhH, “the most insolent novel of the year” (L’Express )

Paris, 1980. The literary critic Roland Barthes dies—struck by a laundry van—after lunch with the presidential candidate François Mitterand. The world of letters mourns a tragic accident. But what if it wasn’t an accident at all? What if Barthes was . . . murdered?

From the prizewinning author of HHhH, “the most insolent novel of the year” (L’Express
)

Paris, 1980. The literary critic Roland Barthes dies—struck by a laundry van—after lunch with the presidential candidate François Mitterand. The world of letters mourns a tragic accident. But what if it wasn’t an accident at all? What if Barthes was . . . murdered?

In The Seventh Function of Language, Laurent Binet spins a madcap secret history of the French intelligentsia, starring such luminaries as Jacques Derrida, Umberto Eco, Gilles Deleuze, Michel Foucault, Judith Butler, and Julia Kristeva—as well as the hapless police detective Jacques Bayard, whose new case will plunge him into the depths of literary theory (starting with the French version of Roland Barthes for Dummies). Soon Bayard finds himself in search of a lost manuscript by the linguist Roman Jakobson on the mysterious “seventh function of language.”

A brilliantly erudite comedy that recalls Flaubert’s Parrot and The Name of the Rose—with more than a dash of TheDa Vinci CodeThe Seventh Function of Language takes us from the cafés of Saint-Germain to the corridors of Cornell University, and into the duels and orgies of the Logos Club, a secret philosophical society that dates to the Roman Empire. Binet has written both a send-up and a wildly exuberant celebration of the French intellectual tradition.

    French intelligentsia hate this book. It is a good sign.
    Roland Barthes is dead. Murder? Perhaps. Who killed barthes who had discovered the 7th language function, able to give the power. It is an improbable thriller, Tintin at the structuralists. We meet Foucault in the gay backrooms, Sollers, Kristeva Chomsky, Searle, Eco, Jacobson…from Bologna to Cornell.
    But especially, it is funny, hilarious, incredibly funny for a french book. Generally, during “rentrée littéraire”, books are sinister, au

    This is a League of Extraordinary Gentleman for the French Theory set. Each page tumbles with allusions and citations, a whodunit which explores the esoteric and the political. I was smitten from the opening page and matters progressed from there. Despite some meta crabwalking I was fervently on-board, routinely laughing and marveling, enjoying the goat rodeo of the mind, my own achy wanderlust being stimulated, perhaps not enough to tack Writing and Difference but certainly ready to watch a Cixous lecture on Youtube while I fathom the subterranean and the elliptical . So much of the so called French Theory’s appear was a sexy subversion, a resistance almost militant to the prevailing structures which oppressed and demanded conformity. There’s a taste of insurrection in the air. Allah knows that 1980 saw Reagan and Thatcher grab the reins and somehow this was a response to the hegemony.

    Or maybe it wasn’t.

    I’ve always respected Barthes but the affinity stopped there. Derrida and Eco reiqn in my theory-verse and Foucault (along with Slavoj Žižek and Alain Badiou) constitutes a necessary antagonism. All three feature here and pleasantly for me, Deleuze watches futbol on TV. Others don’t fare so well: Bernard-Levy, Sollers and Kristeva.

    The novel has the heft and feel of an Eco novel, one which smirks at its own pretensions. Perhaps Borges did this better in The Aleph?

    Que adjetivo poderíamos adotar para qualificar uma alma que, explorando assuntos e temas tão herméticos para a nossa compreensão e que incluem valências socioculturais que poderão surgir algo desenquadradas com a nossa atualidade, o nosso quotidiano – ou pelo menos de alguns de nós – como uma abordagem literária ou romanceada à semiologia, ao construtivismo ao estruturalismo que enformam algumas produções filosóficas nas quais se perfilam, sem alguma promiscuidade, as correntes peripatéticas, di

    Só me ocorre um: FORMIDÁVEL! Laurent Binet nesta “Sétima Função da Linguagem” com o subtítulo “Quem matou Roland Barthes” transporta-nos para o mundo surreal embora real para os intelectuais nascidos e criados nas maiores e mais conceituadas universidades francesas, um meio que sabemos pejado de intrigas, invejas, usurpações e proliferações de egos e super egos que, em muitos casos, se encontram num avançado estado de decomposição mas que lutam pelas suas “verdades” sejam elas próprias ou “adquiridas” em mentes alheias.

    O enredo, aliás assaz interessante, consiste em descobrir quem possui a sétima função da linguagem, móbil possível do assassinato de Roland Barthes, aqui entendida como “a função mágica ou encantatória, cujo mecanismo é descrito como ‘a conversão de uma terceira pessoa, ausente ou inanimada, em destinatário de uma mensagem conativa”, ou seja, convencer seja quem for a fazer o que quer que seja em qualquer situação. A sétima função da linguagem consistia, pois, na fórmula “aquele que tivesse o seu conhecimento e domínio de tal função, seria virtualmente o senhor do mundo. O seu poder não teria nenhum limite”. Quem não estaria disposto a matar para a obtenção dessa espécie alquímica?

    Entrementes, uma sociedade altamente obscura, uma espécie de maçonaria intelectual mas disparatada nos eus efeitos, na qual participam vários pensadores de renome mundial – entre os quais o mais conhecido é Umberto Eco reúnem-se no Longus Club, para, sem sessões dialéticas, provarem as suas capacidades mentais, possuidoras de fortes conhecimentos sobre uma temática diversa mas que visa sempre a proficiência dos seus códigos e conhecimentos cognitivos. Quem perde essa batalha, sofre humilhações de uma virulência inesperada.

    Acresce dizer que a ação está localizada, no espaço temporal, nos meses que antecedem as eleições francesas que opuseram Giscard D’Estaign e Francois Miterrand à presidência da república francesa, algo que será exponencialmente importante para a compreensão de toda a trama desta magnifica narrativa!

    Caberá ao comissário Bayard e a Simon Herzog destrinçar uma rede diabólica que mata os intelectuais que se interpõem entre a sétima função da linguagem e as suas repercussões num mundo em que o poder da argumentação, da convicção e mais ainda, do convencimento das massas opera, sem claudicar, impondo as suas melhores ou piores convicções!

    Um livro extraordinariamente inteligente que vale muito a pena pelas aprendizagens que encerra.
