Dear Friends of Telos,

Our Fall issue (#140) has just appeared, a
special issue on Peter Szondi and Critical
Hermeneutics. This is a first in the
English-speaking world. Szondi was a defining
figure in German literary criticism, especially
during the 1960s, and his work is currently
undergoing an exciting rediscovery on both sides
of the Atlantic. I have posted the Introduction
on our website, <http://www.telospress.com/>http://www.telospress.com .

Our book line continues to grow. Jean-Claude
Paye's Global War on Liberty is the most
comprehensive account of the expanding network of
security and surveillance that threatens civil
liberties everywhere. Our new translation of Carl
Schmitt's Theory of the Partisan has added an
important dimension to current political debate.
And on November 1, we will proudly present
Matthias K=FCntzel's Jihad and Jew-Hatred:
Islamism, Nazism and the Roots of 9/11, with an
introduction by Jeffrey Herf. This book=ADa
translation from the German with considerable
expansion=ADpoints to the central role of
antisemitism in the jihadist ideology behind contemporary terrorism.

Next year, not only will we be going online
through cooperation with HighWire Press, but we
will also celebrate our fortieth anniversary!
We've been at it since May of 1968. To recognize
this milestone, we will publish an anthology of
the writings of Paul Piccone, founder and
long-time editor of Telos. We will also offer a
free print subscription to the journal along with
purchase of the anthology. Watch our website for more details.

And our next issues are already in the works.
Upcoming themes: environmentalism, terrorism, a
special issue on Carl Schmitt, the legacy of
1968, Latin America, and more. Stay tuned.

Best wishes,

Russell A. Berman

This volume is dedicated to the theoretical legacy of Ferdinand de
Saussure, which is still challenging not only for linguistics, but for many
other disciplines. For Saussure, to conceive language as a system made
it possible to found linguistics as an autonomous scientific
discipline. However, if language could be seen and treated as a system, it had
consequences not only for linguistics, but also for esthetics,
anthropology, or cultural theory. With respect to Czech functional
as developed by Jan Mukarovsky and others, it seems important that it
was in Prague that Saussurean thinking on language came in touch with
phenomenological philosophy. Since Husserl's work was already
authoritative at the beginning of the 30th, the confrontation of Saussure's
theory of language with phenomenological reflections on language was
inevitable. The interaction between structuralism and phenomenology then
continued, above all, in the philosophical work of Maurice Merleau-Ponty
. But if the interaction between s
tructuralist theory and phenomenology is in focus of this volume, it is
not so much for historical reasons; it is rather due to a mapping of
the possible views of language that issue from the confrontation of
structuralist and phenomenological tradition of thinking. With regard to
language, a high attention is paid to the post-phenomenological and the
post-structuarlist theories, too.
