Building a Profession
Building a Profession (March 1994)
Autobiographical Perspectives on the History of Comparative Literature in the United States
Lionel Gossman - Editor
Mihai I. Spariosu - Editor

At a time when the study of literature and the literary canon itself are once again the focus of intense debate, Building a Profession offers a retrospective on the early days of Comparative Literature in the United States and on its role in defining literary scholarship in the heady decades following the end of the second World War. Composed of autobiographical sketches by a number of eminent comparatists, chiefly of the generation that has ...(Read More)
 
 
Dyke Ideas
Dyke Ideas (March 1994)
Process, Politics, Daily Life
Joyce Trebilcot - Author

Dyke Ideas is a passionate and insightful contribution to lesbian philosophy. The main value is wimmin--women separate from men and men's inventions. "Craziness," guilt, competition, sex, and other topics are explored in ways that reject male values and move toward wimmin-identified cultures.

Method is central. The authoritarian, God's-eye stance typical of academic writing is disavowed in favor of an approach that denies that others "...(Read More)
 
 
Idealism and the Endgame of Theory
Idealism and the Endgame of Theory (January 1994)
Three Essays by F. W. J. Schelling
Thomas Pfau - Editor/translator

This is a well chosen group of essays by Schelling; it gives a sense of Schelling's development which is not available from those works already translated; as such it is a much needed complement to what is already available in English.

"Apart from its contribution to a greater understanding of Schelling, the presentation of this volume does much to define the issues at the source of the recurrent preoccupation with identity in contemporary th...(Read More)
 
 
Nietzsche's Philosophy of Science
Nietzsche's Philosophy of Science (January 1994)
Reflecting Science on the Ground of Art and Life
Babette E. Babich - Author

“The author succeeds in penetrating the cloud of suspicion, incomprehension, and distrust that for contemporary readers surrounds Nietzsche’s writing and shows how the most audacious provocateur or nineteenth-century German wissenschaftliche circles, can speak with real insight to our times about our own very contemporary philosophical crises.” — New Nietzsche Studies

"One c...(Read More)

 
 
Critifiction
Critifiction (November 1993)
Postmodern Essays
Raymond Federman - Author

"I like the way this book makes available critical reflections on postmodern or 'experimental' literature from the perspective of one of its central practitioners in the West today. We hear Federman's voice speaking from both inside and outside the scholarly and pedagogical discourse on postmodernism--a discourse to which he brings the intensity, engagement, vitality of the fiction writer for whom the 'fate' of the postmodern novel is not merely an...(Read More)
 
 
Psyche and Text
Psyche and Text (August 1993)
The Sublime and the Grandiose in Literature, Psychopathology, and Culture
Henry Sussman - Author

Sussman here explores the relevance and value of object-relations theory to literature and literary studies. His study of character treats literature as a medium in which important relationships to conceptualized others--artifacts, mentors, activities, and schools of thought--are being worked through. Although rooted in the psychoanalytical model, this book is ultimately a study of character and of the conditions of subjectivity and intellectual w...(Read More)
 
 
A Postmodern Reader
A Postmodern Reader (July 1993)
Joseph Natoli - Editor
Linda Hutcheon - Editor

Those who recognize that the concept of postmodernism is with us to stay and who meet the necessary responsibility of bringing it to our students will welcome this book. It is ample in its offerings; and from the point of view of the potential user, the convenience and utility of the collection are prime virtues.

"The mix is refreshing. The selections are both varied and representative; they touch on essential aspects of the topic and exhau...(Read More)
 
 
Critical Theory, Public Policy, and Planning Practice
Critical Theory, Public Policy, and Planning Practice (July 1993)
John Forester - Author

Too often attacked as hopelessly abstract, contemporary critical social theory can help us to understand both public policy and its analysis. In this book, John Forester shows how policy analysis, planning, and public administration are thoroughly political communicative practices that subtly and selectively organize public attention. Drawing from Jurgen Habermas's critical communications theory of society, Forester shows how policy developments a...(Read More)
 
 
Inner Experience
Inner Experience (April 1988)
Georges Bataille - Author
Leslie Anne Boldt-Irons - Translation and introduction by

"English readers will now be able to appreciate what many consider Bataille's finest work, undoubtedly one of the outstanding texts of modern French writing, just as they will be able to fill a major gap in the history of post-structuralist thought. Whereas Bataille may be the acknowledged forefather of such figures as Barthes, Foucault, and Derrida, this centrality is often not appreciated by American admirers of the latter."

Friedrich Holderlin
Friedrich Holderlin (December 1987)
Essays and Letters on Theory
Thomas Pfau - Editor/translator

Holderlin's essays and letters constitute essential documents for an understanding of the transitional period from neo-classical poetics to what can only be characterized as a unique and, in its frequently experimental structure, essentially modernist poetics.

This book contains virtually all of Holderlin's theoretical writings translated for the first time. In spite of the great significance of Holderlin's ideas for contemporary critical th...(Read More)
