"In making good on its important effort to encourage and enact a rapprochement between Cavell and literary criticism, Stanley Cavell and Literary Studies is splendid testimony to one of this thinker's extraordinary strengths: his gift for inspiring brilliant minds to engage him in arguments about matters that are of compelling concern to readers across the humanities. This is a scintillating collection of passionately argued essays." -- Ross Posnock, Anna Garbedian Professor of the Humanities, Department of English and Comparative Literature, Columbia University, USA "A serious encounter between literary theory and ordinary language philosophy is long overdue. This stimulating collection of essays is an indispensable resource for literary critics curious about Cavell and anyone eager to strengthen and deepen the relations between philosophy and literature." -- Rita Felski, William R. Kenan, Jr., Professor of English, University of Virginia, USA, and Editor, New Literary History
