Research Interests

(1) The analysis of arguments on the literary language in the 19th and the 20th century France, especially in Maurice Blanchot. I don’t consider however the literary language as distinguished from the ordinary language but as something which indicates the essence of the language itself, moreover, as the research of the “image”, which is observed also in the domain of visual arts.

(2) The research of the deconstruction of the inflexible philosophical schema by the literary textual analysis, by reading Jacques Derrida.

(3) The analysis of the relation between the problems of the rhetoric and the arguments on the language in the 20th and contemporary France.
