Irish playwright Samuel Beckett’s Waiting for Godot En attendant Godotoriginally written in French and premiered on January 5,seems to be a counter-reaction to the bourgeois mode of representation, formal realism. In the play, his anti-heroes find themselves “thrown into” a decentered, incomprehensible and chaotic world.
The decentered and fragmented epistemological structure they inhabit does not enable them to configure or formulate a stable sense of godotj for themselves. In other words, this epistemological structure cannot offer them a Master Signifier which will organize, categorize, hierarchize their truth and which will establish binary oppositions in it.

The play lays bare the constructedness of the above mentioned epistemological categories. By making them dysfunctional in the course of the play, Beckett, in fact, challenges and problematizes formal realism, the mode of representation established by the Enlightenment epistemology.
These anti-heroes have lost their temporal discipline as they cannot connect their yesterday with their tomorrow. In this context their memory has gone bankrupt.

They seem to be linguistically paralyzed as their language helps them no more to formulate a unified sense of reality and self. In their world the usual causes do not lead into their usual effects or the usual effects do not originate from the usual causes.
That is, causality does not count for them. They cannot make authentic preferences in existentialist terms.

The only thing that stabilizes the course of things in their lives is the fact that they are waiting for Godot. Physically they seem to be paralyzed. Intellectually they cannot achieve anything, and they cannot make sense of the goeotu they live in. They can only make abortive attempts to make inferences. In this play, Beckett problematizes the ontological status of language rather than language’s potentials or whether it can give expression to a “reality” out there.
In the play the signifiers do not lead into signifieds but to other signifiers. Here Beckett gets closer to the poststructuralists. This study aims to underline the counter-Enlightenment elements in Waiting for Godot, by laying bare how the play departs from formal realism and how it problematizes the epistemological categories formal realism is based on.
