Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

This handsome new edition of Stanley Cavell's landmark text, first published 20 years ago, provides a new preface that discusses the reception and influence of his work, which occupies a unique niche between philosophy and literary studies.

Synopsis:

Fostering a relationship between philosophy and literature by augmenting his philosophical discussions with examples from literature and by applying philosophical theories to literary texts, Cavell also draws parallels between the British and continental analytic tradition.
