Bret Alderman is a writer and life coach. His book Symptom, Symbol, and the Other of Language: A Jungian interpretation of the linguistic turn examines the linguistic turn of the twentieth century and goes into some detail on the works of postmodern thinkers such as Richard Rorty, Michel Foucault, and Jacques Derrida in a way that makes sometimes complex ideas approachable and understandable. He suggests that the linguistic turn has resulted in a neglect of consideration of the experiential, animate body and has resulted in a rift between language and materiality.
