claims. In short, we traffic in ideas.

Paths of Desire: Itineraries as Transgression.

Paths of desire: A term appearing in studies of landscape design as well as
architecture, which refers to the paths we trace when our desires lead us
off the beaten track and a trail forms behind us. This notion both
encompasses the incidental and manifests longing, and brings to light the
importance of both the traverser and the traversal. These figures are key
to the shaping of physical and theoretical topographies. No itinerary is
undertaken without motivation, or without leaving a mark.

"In arriving at structuralism, literary studies simply join the
general tendency of contemporary thought. Throughout almost the entire
realm of contemporary scholarship the discovery of the dynamic
relations which pervade its material has proven to be an effective
modus operandi, for example, in the disciplines of the arts and in
general aesthetics, in psychology, sociology, linguistics, economics,
and even in the natural sciences" (J. Mukarovsky, 1934)
