Graduate Program, Teaching Assistant

Elliot Shaw earned his BA in English and Secondary Education from Palm Beach Atlantic University, and his MA in Comparative Literature from Florida Atlantic University. The title of his MA thesis was "Grammars of Communion," which critiqued the Sausurrean semiotic foundation of Derrida's deconstructionist project, and posited that a resolution to the problems encountered in Saussure and Derrida could be found in C. S. Peirce's semiotics and George Steiner's philosophy of language.

His research interests include literary theory and criticism, philosophy of language, philosophy of science, literature and religion, 20th century French philosophy, Georges Gusdorf, and 20th century sciences of man.
