“Forensics of a Straw Man Pharmakos in Northrop Frye’s ‘Theory of Modes'”

That’s the title of an article by Rickard Goranowski published in The International Journal of Knowledge, Culture and Change Management.

The abstract:

Jacques Derrida in 1981, in ‘Plato’s Pharmacy,’ confronted the inveterate Northrop Frye over the 1971 Critical Path as a “pharmakos” or ‘rascal traducer’: Frye’s ‘straw man’ misprision of the Sidney-Peacock-Shelley controversy belittling Peacock and Shelley was obliquely identified by Derrida, in Pharmacy’s first paragraphs, prosecuting Frye’s undue influence on university publishing and tenure management.
