Barthes et le lexique de la critique

Abstract : In the works of Barthes, the vocabulary of criticism constitutes a stumbling block between the scientific pretention to the objectivity and the mobility of the meaning. While Barthes indeniably enriched the vocabulary of criticism, there is an obvious contradiction between the conceptualization in categories present in the article « (Theory of) the text », written for the Encyclopédie Universalis and the variability of the meanings linked to the enunciative and socio-cultural contexts. This study shows the debatable impact in the university criticism of a « pantextualism » derived from an inappropriate use of intertextuality, a central notion in the « (Theory of) the text ». The « pantextualism » masks the part of non-convertibility between text and image or the possible existence of an « hors-text », whereas the reading of the last works of Barthes corrects this simplified vision. It is necessary to re-read Barthes against and with him.
