This is a remarkable book: wide-ranging, resonant, and well-written; it is also reflective and personable, warm and engaging." -Philosophy and LiteratureWith this book Caputo takes his place firmly as the foremost American, continental post-modernist... " -International Philosophical QuarterlyOne cannot but be impressed by the scope of Radical Hermeneutics." -Man and WorldCaputo's study is stunning in its scope and scholarship." -Robert E. Lauder, St. John's University, The ThomistFor John D. Caputo, hermeneutics means radical thinking without transcendental justification: attending to the ruptures and irregularities in existence before the metaphysics of presence has a chance to smooth them over. Radical Hermeneutics forges a closer collaboration between hermeneutics and deconstruction than has previously been attempted.show more

Review quote

In this volume, Ms. Storch cleverly captures the essence of Marcel Tabuteau, one of the finest musicians and greatest teachers of his era and whose unique perspective profoundly influenced classical music for generations to follow. The stories she tells about this remarkable man are, at once, poignant, witty and right on the mark. -- John Minsker . . . Storch's intriguing book will appeal to a broad audience, not just oboists. Anyone interested in music will find Tabuteau's philosophies and Storch's research beneficial and applicable. * Choice, January 2009 * [Storch's] personal descriptions of what it was like to study with this mercurial genius are absolutely fascinating; they provide indispensable glimpses for this generation of oboe students, not to mention future ones. -- Dan Stolper * Interlochen Centre for the Arts * Laila Storch's biography of Marcel Tabuteau provides a detailed and intimate portrait of the life and artistry of the man widely considered to be the father of the American school of oboe playing. * The Double Reed, Vol. 33, No. 2, Summer 2010 * [This biography is] movingly personal . . . . may prove to be one of the most accomplished and important musical biographies of the 21st century. -- Christopher Brodersen * Fanfare, 8/1/10 * . . . This book will be informative, interesting, and beneficial for anyone who is involved with the performance of music in the United States, whether in the field or in academe. -- Lois Kuyper-Rushing * Louisiana State University * Everyone always said that a book ought to be written about that unique and extraordinary man, Marcel Tabuteau. Now, at last, the book has arrived. -- Louis Rosenblatt Laila Storch . . . is generous in her admiration of [Marcel Tabuteau's] compelling artistry. She has produced a monumental tribute to an extraordinary musician whose influence remains alive in each generation of American oboists. -- Anthony McColl * Double Reed News, 87 Summer 2009 * Ms. Storch's style is descriptive, informative, and engaging-a nice blend between the historical and the personal. This volume gets my vote as the winning historical profile of one of the most influential and revered performers and pedagogues of our time-Marcel Tabuteau. A must for every serious musician's library. -- Linda Strommen * Indiana University *show more
