Summary Read First Chapter image missing

Explores the meanings of subjectivity in continental philosophy in the wake of post-structuralism and critical theory.

"Critchley and Dews have assembled an impressive collection of essays that focus on one of many splits within contemporary continental philosophy. But the purpose of this collection is not to exacerbate an already contentious scene. The purpose is to demonstrate surprising similarities and convictions traversing divergent approaches and traditions. More directly, Critchley and Dews set out to display, between the divergent traditions influenced by Heidegger, Habermas, Lacan, and Derrida, a strange alliance for the overcoming of the subject. Critchley and Dews have succeeded in attaining this goal." -- Gayle L. Ormiston, Kent State University

"This is an outstanding collection of essays by some of the most talented and important figures now working in continental philosophy--not all of them well known in this country. The essays address a family of questions that many are struggling with across a range of disciplines and traditions--the chief problem being that philosophy (of a certain kind) can celebrate the achievement of its critique of the subject, but the achievement has produced a good deal of theoretical, not to say practical, confusion in political and social theory, the relations of politics and ethics, feminist thinking, and cultural studies. This volume of essays will give orientation to a wide range of debates." -- Gerald L. Bruns, William & Hazel White Professor of English, University of Notre Dame
