==Jacques Lacan==
=====Primacy of the Signifier=====
For [[Saussure]], the [[signified]] has the same status as the [[signifier]]; both form equal sides of the [[sign]].
In other words, the [[signified]] is not given, but produced.
=====Priority of Language=====
[[Lacan]]'s view is thus opposed to an expressionist view of [[language]], according to which [[concepts]] exist in some pre-verbal state before being expressed in the [[material]] medium of [[language]].
