Editorial Reviews

From the Publisher
"Docherty has previously published a number of distinguished books, but this one might be seen as the culmination of his years of thought and work on the humanities and their social roles. . . . The scope of Docherty's knowledge
is truly amazing. . . . [He] writes with a quite unusual combination of passionate commitment and temperate clarity about difficult matters." —J. Hillis Miller,University of California, Irvine
