3A Note to the ReaderThe reader with a more general/exploratory interest will wish to begin with theIntroductory Remarks and move steadily through the work. The reader with someacquaintance to the subject-matter will wish to read the Introductory Remarks, draw fromthe first and second chapters whatever is appropriate, and read the third and fourthchapters more closely.A Note for the Published EditionSince the debut and review of this work by my academic superiors, I have had theopportunity to become more familiar with Gilles Deleuze, whose discorse I consider notagainst but along side Lacans. Unfortunately for me, I have not had the opportunity toincorporate the discussion of the material aspects of the signifier, as well as otherinsights, in Deleuze's Logic of Sense (Columbia 1990, 196-216) into Chapter 4. I wouldinvite the careful reader to explore Deleuze's own account of subjective genesis beforecoming to any final conclusions about Lacan's. Deleuze draws from Peirce and theScholastic and linguistic debates in subtle ways, which could stand to be compared to myown in my future studies.-A. L. Y., May 19, 2005Hampshire College
