Editorial Reviews

From the Publisher
“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
