Lectures by Cavell (aesthetics, Harvard) at Berkeley (1983) and Stanford (1984, 1986) and Vienna (1986) provide an argument for the philosophical basis of Romanticism, particularly in its American rendering. He examines Emerson, Thoreau, Poe, Wordsworth, and Coleridge, to show that Romanticism and American Transcendentalism represent a serious philosophical response to the challenge of skepticism that underlies the writings of Wittgenstein and J.L. Austin on ordinary language. Papers based on the work of Emmanuel Levinas' account of the face of the other. Chapters deal with the ethics of dissemination in Derrida, the freedom of the other in Sartre, the cultural other in Husserl, the other as sexual difference in Irigaray and Nietzsche, the sublime in aesthetics, and the deconstruction of the primacy of the ego in Foucault and Lacan. Paper edition ($16.95) not seen. Annotation copyrighted by Book News, Inc., Portland, ORThe core source of this book is the work of Emmanuel Levinas.
