The Ritual of New Creation
The Ritual of New Creation (September 1992)
Jewish Tradition and Contemporary Literature
Norman Finkelstein - Author

In The Ritual of New Creation, Norman Finkelstein has written the best book of its kind, a book that will revolutionize not only the way Jewish intellectual life is understood in America but the way in which that grab bag of heterogeneous novels, plays, and poems that we call 'Jewish literature' will henceforth be interpreted and valued. It is not too much to call The Ritual of New Creation revolutionary, nor too much to think of it a...(Read More)
 
 
Intimate Conflict
Intimate Conflict (August 1992)
Contradiction in Literary and Philosophical Discourse
Brian G. Caraher - Editor


In a comprehensive introduction and six tightly argued essays, the authors demonstrate how rich and suggestive the notion of contradiction in discourse can be.

Matrix and line
Matrix and line (August 1992)
Derrida and the possibilities of postmodern social theory
Bill Martin - Author

"Bill Martin's Matrix and line is the most comprehensive and exciting of a number of recent North American attempts to assess the politics of deconstruction and the deconstruction of modernist politics. It shows how the question of the other, the marginal and the excluded are decisive for an emerging form of political thought and practice. A confrontation between Jacques Derrida's and Jurgen Habermas's philosophies of language sets the stag...(Read More)
 
 
The Experience of the Foreign
The Experience of the Foreign (August 1992)
Culture and Translation in Romantic Germany
Antoine Berman - Author
S. Heyvaert - Translator

"This book is the first authoritative analysis of the theory of translation in German Romanticism. In a systematic study of Herder, Goethe, Schlegel, Novalis, Humboldt, Schleiermacher, and Holderlin, Berman demonstrates the importance of the theory of translation for an understanding of German romantic culture, arguing that never before has the concept of translation been meditated in such detail and such depth. Indeed, fundamental questions that ...(Read More)

Contextual Authority and Aesthetic Truth
Contextual Authority and Aesthetic Truth (July 1992)
James S. Hans - Author

This book explores the relationship between authority and context and attempts to establish the ways in which authority is a function of a particular agent or set of agents, and the degree to which it is a product of a context rather than an agent. The work is not a sociological or psychological study but rather a literary/philosophical speculation into the roots of our conceptions of authority. It declares all authority to be aesthetic in nature ...(Read More)
 
 
Play, Literature, Religion
Play, Literature, Religion (July 1992)
Essays in Cultural Intertextuality
Virgil Nemoianu - Editor
Robert Royal - Editor

"I am 'bowled over' by the brilliant synthesizing essays by Nemoianu and Dupre, which tie together large, important realms of contemporary theory and cultural history; and by the verve with which the other contributors relate major subjects and authors to the core or nexus: the 'play concept.' The book breaks open into exciting new territory and pulls together a host of inherited forces, contemporary impulses, and deeper trends. While cutting acr...(Read More)

Part One covers the philosophical tradition from Gottfried Herder to Ernst Cassirer. Part Two includes close analytical readings of individual poems by these authors as they enact th...(Read More)
 
 
The Step Not Beyond
The Step Not Beyond (July 1992)
Maurice Blanchot - Author
Lycette Nelson - Translator

This book is a translation of Maurice Blanchot's work that is of major importance to late 20th-century literature and philosophy studies. Using the fragmentary form, Blanchot challenges the boundaries between the literary and the philosophical. With the obsessive rigor that has always marked his writing, Blanchot returns to the themes that have haunted his work since the beginning: writing, death, transgression, the neuter, but here the figures a...(Read More)

A Reading of Lacan
Jean-Luc Nancy - Author
Philippe Lacoue-Labarthe - Author
François Raffoul - Translator
David Pettigrew - Translator

"I advise you to read a book called The Title of the Letter. It is with the greatest satisfaction that I have read it. I could not encourage its distribution enough. I can say, in a way, if it is a question of reading, that I have never been read so well..." --Jacques Lacan

This book is a close reading of Jacques Lacan's seminal essay, "The Agency of the Letter in the Unconscious or Reason Since Freud, " selected for t...(Read More)
