Summary Read First Chapter image missing

Essays consider Drucilla Cornell’s contributions to philosophy, political theory, and legal studies.

Drucilla Cornell’s contribution to legal thought and philosophy is unique in its attention to diverse traditions and the possibilities of dialogue among them. Renée J. Heberle and Benjamin Pryor bring together scholars from a range of disciplines who reflect on Cornell’s influence and importance to contemporary social and political theory and critically engage with ideas and arguments central to her published work. The final chapter is Cornell’s own response to the contributors’ views, establishing a record of a critical exchange among top scholars from across disciplines.

“This book combines exegesis and critical assessment of a major thinker. Cornell is a prolific writer responding to major—and dead—philosophers, as well as many contemporary voices. Her interdisciplinary writing on ideals such as ‘justice’ and ‘dignity’ is distinguished from other ‘postmodern’ writings because of her insistence in reconstructing liberalism in the wake of post-structuralism. The contributors force Cornell, for the first time, to account for aspects of her work, including her disinterestedness in Nietzsche and Foucault and her liberal reading of Levinas.” — Marinos Diamantides, author of Levinas, Law, Politics

“The contributors’ essays offer very insightful and clarifying analyses of some of the most important aspects of Drucilla Cornell’s work and point to the breadth and depth of her influence in many fields. The book also gives a helpful overview of Cornell’s body of theoretical work as a whole. The contributors impressively situate Cornell’s writing in terms of its relation to the various philosophers that she is influenced by and in theoretical conversation with, in particular Kant, Levinas, and Heidegger.” — Christine Keating, The Ohio State University
