What Terry Eagleton sees as the positive aspects of structuralism (pp. 92-94). Be careful and attentive to the ‘constructedness’ spoken of here, and to the dismantling of ‘common sense.’

Structuralism and anthropology (From the book Terry Eagleton 90-100 pages)1. Structuralism and anthropology: Claude Lévi-Strauss (pp. 90-91).2. Structuralist narratology: Vladimir Propp and Gérard Genette (pp. 90-92).3. What Terry Eagleton sees as the positive aspects of structuralism (pp. 92-94). Be careful and attentive to the ‘constructedness’ spoken of here, and to the dismantling of ‘common sense.’4. Structuralism as the flight from history (pp. 94-97). Pay extra attention to Eagleton’s demolishing of the claim that the ‘deep structures’ are universal (pp. 94-95).5. Eagleton’s analysis of structuralism’s general attitude to language and its fatal flaws (pp. 97-98). Think about the word ‘materiality’ here, in the linguistic context (there are many materialisms!)6. How structuralism dissolves the subject and what happens as a result of it (p. 98-99). Be very careful here: very important and not very easy. What sort of ‘intention’ does Eagleton speak of on p. 99?7. How structuralism fails to regard language as practice, what are the results of that failure (pp. 99-100). Again: crucial and sophisticated.
