  • Author: Demanze (Laurent)
  • Abstract: Nathalie Piégay-Gros reminded us of the novelistic virtuality of the most austere forms of knowledge in L’Érudition imaginaire. A same sort of philological fiction is proposed by Chevillard in L’Œuvre posthume de Thomas Pilaster. By juxtaposing the positivity of attested knowledge and its bizarre (mis)uses, he detects a murderous tension in the practices of philological knowledge. This is doubtless the trap of a novel which undermines all possible forms of reception by constantly undermining the very act of reading.
