Product Description

Review

"Stanley Cavell is a major player in the ongoing revival of American pragmatism and in the overall attempt to bridge the gap between Anglo-American and Continental philosophy as well as the gap between literature and philosophy."--Greig Henderson "The University of Toronto Quarterly "

"This is a voice like no other in philosophy, today or ever."--Arthur C. Danto "October "

"[In] "This New Yet Unapproachable America", the namings of style and history and philosophic tutelage happen all at once. . . . We will find ourselves indebted to this knot of time, discipline, and text."--Stephen Melville "American Literary History "

"By turns plangent and nostalgic, ecstatic and humorous, Stanley Cavell's style is the most distinctive in contemporary American philosophy. More than mere ornament, it conveys a message that for him philosophy is not only a profession; it is a calling, a way of life."--Charles Dove "Modern Language Notes "

"[In] "This New Yet Unapproachable America," the namings of style and history and philosophic tutelage happen all at once. . . . We will find ourselves indebted to this knot of time, discipline, and text."--Stephen Melville "American Literary History "

Not entirely impressed. Too expensive. Might take another read.
