Finnegans Wake Theories and schools of thought in the novel : Sigmund Freud (sex, dreams, unconscious); Sir James G. Frazer (comparative folklore, mythology, and religion); Levy-Bruhl (anthropology); Giambattista Vico (cyclical repetition in history, stages in development (Vicus, Jean Baptister Vickar)); Giordano Bruno (dualism and the conflict of opposites (Nolan)).

Four levels of meaning - literal, allegorical, anagogical (spiritual interpretation of texts), and moral (cf. Biblical exegesis and Dante).

Language used - puns, portmanteau words, malapropisms, assimilation, dissimilation, metathesis, philosophical allusions, church liturgy, popular songs, slang, headlines, advertising, placee-names, invidiuals heroes, books titles, paintings and statues, private anecdotes, gossip, friends and enemies, literary contemporareis, saints, sport celebrities, actors etc. - translates into what Lacan calls lire de travers, misreading, lapsus-reading, or rapports lateraux, an overflow of words and descriptions that together can provide a philosophical account.
