Abduction Topology: The Psycholinguistics of Discourse examines and explores the psychological and linguistic mechanisms of discourse. Using the psychology of Lacan and Vygotsky, and the work of philosophers from Plato to Agamben, this book exposes the workings of thought and language in individual psychology and the social Zeitgeist as they relate to early childhood development, social architecture, and propaganda. The topology of the process of social abduction during the Lacanian mirror stage of psycho-emotional development is described, then is brought to the threshold of revolution in Hegel's Second Negation and the birth of what Schirmacher calls "Homo Generator."
