Stanley Cavell has been a brilliant, idiosyncratic presence in American philosophy literary criticism, and cultural studies for years. Even as, he continues to produce new writing of a high quality - an example of which is included in this collection - his work has elicited responses from a new generation of writers in Europe and America. This collection showcases this new work, while illustrating the variety of Cavell's interests: in the ordinary language philosophy of Wittgenstein and Austin, in film criticism and theory, in literature, psychoanaylsis, and the American transcendentalism of Ralph Waldo Emerson and Henry David Thoreau.
