Summary Read First Chapter image missing

An innovative study of deconstruction, psychoanalysis, and genealogy, relating the ethical to the problematic of the text as a post or a sending in the work of Derrida, Lyotard, Lacan, Kristeva, and Foucault, and phrasing the ethical as the questions of how to read and write after.

"McCance has a sure grasp of not only the primary texts with which she is working, but also of much of the relevant secondary literature. Her introduction does an excellent job of explaining both how and why the American culture industry has tended to domesticate the writings of contemporary French poststructuralists by linking them to the monolithic idea of the 'postmodern.' Many people working in continental philosophy, feminism, psychoanalysis, and literary criticism will be interested in reading this concise and elegant book." -- Andrew Cutrofello, Loyola University

Posts is a collection of original essays that relate the ethical to the problematic of the text as a post or a sending in the work of Jacques Derrida, Jean-Francois Lyotard, Jacques Lacan, Julia Kristeva, and Michel Foucault. What brings these diverse thinkers together here is the suggestion that something ethical happens (il arrive) through the text only if it is not a self-presentation. The book's innovative studies of deconstruction, psychoanalysis, and genealogy phrase the ethical as the question of how to read and write after without either a decidable sender or a predetermined addressee. The collection will be of interest to all those concerned with ethics and with the ethical implications of recent developments in literary criticism, postmodern theory, psychoanalysis, architecture, feminism, philosophy, and religious studies.

"I am overwhelmed by the readings of the principle philosophers. I feel as if my reading of Derrida is immeasurably improved because of McCance's careful reading. 'Beginning' with him and tacitly ending with him--not just because of the final cite but because of the 'silent' return to apocalypse is brilliant. I love this book. My favorite sections are 'Autobiography' and 'Encore.' Marvelously written." -- Alison Leigh Brown, Northern Arizona University
