Fifteen prominent scholars from a range of academic disciplines--legal studies, critical legal studies, political science, Jewish studies, rhetoric, and literary studies--explore various aspects of cultural and literary critic Stanley Fish's work. They examine Fish's understanding of how interpretation functions, the various philosophical issues that Fish has addressed or failed to address in his work, and the political consequences of Fish's thought. Stanley Fish responds to the ideas put forth in this book in a detailed Afterword.
