Keywords: method, structuralism, possible consciousness

It set him apart from existentialist perspectives (that favor the individual subject), as much as from structuralist ones (that ontologizes the language).

Amongst the many texts published by the author, Le dieu caché is which better presents his project for a sociology of culture.
