Description:

This paper attempts to explain the structuralists' themes which dominated the philosophical thinking in the Twentieth Century and influenced many postmodernists and post-structuralists. As examples, the writer makes reference to the works of Ferdinand Saussaaure, Karl Marx, Sigmund Freud, Michel Foucault, Jacques Derrida and Gilles Deleuz. Post-Structuralism and Postmodernists basically argue that "truth" is relative, it says that language is rooted in culture and its practice, thus it always favors that particular culture. Meaning, on the other hand, is not objective but depends on the experience of the individual.
