Chapter Summary

Culler presents Saussure as contemporary with Sigmund Freud and Emile Durkheim within a new epistemological context, and describes this as a move from individual, autonomous objects to structure and system of relations. In an extraordinary way, Duhmian readings of Isa. 52:13-53:12 seem to be a matter of re-covering the meaning of the text through some kind of homage to his "Servant Song" thesis. This chapter overviews, certain tendencies might be seen in the readings of Isa. 52:13- 53:12, for instance, the identification of "many" might be related to discussions of universalism/particularism, while the dualistic interpretation of the relation between "him" and "us" is further related to a concept of vicarious suffering.

Keywords: Duhmian; epistemological context; Isa. 52:13-53:12; Saussure; text
