Language didn't evolve in simple terms within the far away prior. Our shared knowing of the meanings of phrases is ever-changing, and we make unsleeping, rational judgements approximately which phrases to exploit and what to intend by way of them each day. employing Darwin’s idea of “unconscious synthetic selection” to the evolution of linguistic conventions, Daniel Cloud indicates a brand new, evolutionary reason behind the wealthy, complicated, and regularly reinvented meanings of our phrases.

Bollack actually treats the Oedipus story as a single entity (contained within a hermeneutic web) which reveals its full meaning by itself: Oedipus is born damned because his lineage has reached a kind of saturation point. ‘Oedipus should not exist. Why? Because in Thebes, the home of plenitude and autonomy, any concentration of individual authority would endanger the world order. Oedipus is thus the instrument of Apollo’s revenge’ (Bollack, 1991:21). Here too, however, we can measure the gap between what the story says (no mention of any particular vindictiveness on the part of the God of Delphi) and the meaning uncovered by the hermeneuticist.

He was handed over to a shepherd by the ox-handler given the job of leaving him to die. The shepherd made a gift of him to his masters, Polybus and Merope, king and queen of Corinth. The child grew up believing himself to be the legitimate offspring of his adoptive parents. One day someone teased him by claiming that he was not really his parents’ child. Upset by this he sought reassurance from his parents. They reinforced the lie by telling him he was indeed their son. In his anxiety he went off to Delphi to consult the oracle, and was told that he would kill his father and sleep with his mother.
