help for the meaning of a paragraph Does the secind paragraph of the provided context mean: Jacques Derrida’s idea (in contrast with Jacques Lacan’s) Hiller’s assertion that in the interpretation of the images, artefacts and maps of dreams of other societies, "drawing" is in fact understood as a form of "writing" (drawings like texts contain different kinds of information). In the same manner, the ancient Greeks had only one word for both "drawing" and "writing"? Context: While Freud’s emphasis on language would be taken to extremes in psychoanalyst Jacques Lacan’s influential reinterpretation of his ideas for the twentieth century, the French philosopher Jacques Derrida’s essay on Freud’s dream-work underscores the textual nature of the dream-work, the dream-work as a form of visual writing. This aligns nicely with Hiller’s assertion that in relation to the images, artefacts and maps of dreams from other societies, ‘“drawing” might actually be better understood as “writing” in the sense that the ancient Greeks had only one word for what we divide into two ideas, pertaining separately to images and to words’.
