R. Barthes – Roland Barthes

‘I would have wanted  to produce not a comedy of the intellect but its romanesque, its novelistic theory’

It’s remarkable how Barthes stayed true to himself, forever putting esthetics above vague, fainting concept of truth, above agonizing conflicts, above himself and his scholarly discoveries. The lesson is paradoxical. This approach shows much more than a clever mind at work, it is an argument in its own right. Boundaries between science and literature are to be lost in the mist of the art. What a happy ending this would be. As for now the sign reads: ‘utopia’.
