Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

The most up-to-date and authoritative introduction to critical theory available, this acclaimed dictionary provides an ideal overview of the full range of theories, schools of thought, and theorists. Whether it's Arendt or Woolf, object relations or orientalism, postcolonial theory or postmodernism, readers will find incisive entries on the work of key figures, powerful summaries of the crucial debates, and clear explanations of both the links and differences between the various thinkers and schools.

Synopsis:

Many courses in literary or cultural studies include some discussion of psychoanalysis, structuralism, post-modernism, linguistics and semiotics. This dictionary should bring the reader information on the wide variety of interdisciplinary topics in critical theory.
