Philosophy of Language

Medina's final chapter in relation to Althusser, Bourdieu and Butler reveals a poignant point in regard to the intensity of identity formation and social power. Medina schematically presents the work of these thinkers in order to iterate an overall radicalization of Althusser's original notion of interpellation. Applying the idea of interpellation to both non-verbal and verbal communication, a very interesting paper could be written linking Butler's account of language and identity formation specifically in relation to microagressions.
