Critical Theory Since 1965


“An overwhelmingly rich display of critical theory.” –Rocky Mountain Review
Critical Theory Since 1965 (originally published in 1986 and now in paperback) is a collection of theoretical writing by thirty-eight contemporary theorists and, as background, eighteen important intellectual precursors. It is by far the most complete representation of critical theory available, including phenomenologists, structuralists, deconstructionists, Marxists, feminists, reader-response critics, dissenters, and eccentrics, and supplying the background texts necessary of a working understanding of contemporary critical vocabulary and thought.
The volume includes selections from Chomsky, Searle, Derrida, Foucault, Frye, Bloom, Kristeva, Fish, Baktin, Berlin, Lacan, Heidegger, Wittgenstein, Lukács, Lévi-Strauss, and Blanchot, among many others.
