Stanley Cavell: Philosophy, literature, and criticism is the first book to offer a comprehensive examination of the relationship between the celebrated philosophical work of Stanley Cavell and the discipline of literary criticism. In this volume, the editors have assembled an impressive range of interlocutors who set out to explore the shape and substance of Stanley Cavell's persistent acknowledgement of the literary as a category in which, and through which, philosophical work can be undertaken.
A number of essays address his engagements with modernism, tragedy, and romanticism, while others consider Cavell's own aesthetic modes as a writer.
Stanley Cavell: Philosophy, literature, and criticism will be of interest to all those who are concerned with the ways in which the reading of literature, and the practice of philosophy, might continue both to influence each other across disciplinary boundaries, and to challenge the internal topographies of those disciplines. -- .
