A Seat In Loge A


In his book "Philosophy Through The Looking Glass" (Open Court, La Salle IL, 1985). Jean-Jacques Lecercle concerns himself with a variety of perversion which Michel Pierssens termed logophilia, "...the love of language that knows no bounds, certainly not those of common sense" In his exposition upon delire, the point where grammar and madness meet, he introduces us to several obscure French writers and contrasts their varieties of delire with the more patterned and orderly nonsense of Lewis Carroll.
