About the Authors
  • In this classic collection of wide-ranging and interdisciplinary essays, Stanley Cavell explores a remarkably broad range of philosophical issues from politics and ethics to the arts and philosophy. The essays explore issues as diverse as the opposing approaches of 'analytic' and 'Continental' philosophy, modernism, Wittgenstein, abstract expressionism and Schoenberg, Shakespeare on human needs, the difficulties of authorship, Kierkegaard and post-Enlightenment religion. Presented in a fresh twenty-first century series livery, and including a specially commissioned preface, written by Stephen Mulhall, illuminating its continuing importance and relevance to philosophical enquiry, this influential work is now available for a new generation of readers.

    • Unique to Cambridge, this classic book has been revived and rebranded for a twenty-first-century readership
    • Features essays that are wide-ranging and interdisciplinary, from philosophy and literature to music and drama
    • Offers Stanley Cavell's fascinating interpretation of 'ordinary language philosophy'
    • Features a specially commissioned preface written by Stephen Mulhall
