For Saussure, one cannot conceive meaning independently of its articulation in language. The sign does not have a one-to-one relationship with its referent, and meaning is no longer the description of this reference. The concept of the sign breaks into two parts: the signifier (the acoustic image) and the signified (the concept that goes with the signifier). The sign results from the association of signifier and signified (Saussure 1916/1983: 67). 19 THE PHILOSOPHICAL CONTEXT A linguistic sign is not a link between a thing and a name, but between a concept and a sound pattern.
The signifier is first; the signified is only its effect. Therefore, the signified inevitably ‘slips beneath’ the signifier, resisting our attempts to delimit it. However, he does think that there are some ‘anchoring points’ ( points de capiton, translated by Fink as ‘button ties’) ‘by which the signifier stops the otherwise indefinite sliding of signification’ (Lacan 2006: 681). 15 Lacan’s work evolves. His teachings of the 1960s and 1970s question the structuralist primacy of the relational system.
7 We do not willingly execute this (synthesizing) activity of the imagination. It is, on the other hand, something preceding the reflexive self which is the condition of possibility of cognition. ‘The principle of the necessary unity of the pure (productive) synthesis of the imagination prior to apperception is thus the ground of the possibility of all cognition, especially that of experience’ (Kant 1789/1996: A 118). This brings us to the third ‘relation to the object’, the cognitive one. According to Kant, ‘innate’ concepts or categories of the understanding make appearances into an object for knowledge (‘Objekt’): ‘Appearances, so far as they are thought as objects according to the unity of the categories, are called phaenomena’ (Kant 1789/1996: A 249).
