The world of literary theory and criticism is once again at a crossroads. While much of the academy has been absorbing and institutionalizing that unstable mixture of poststructuralism, deconstruction, political critique and materialist historicism which is known as cultural theory, some people have been working up alternative theories. This book is about some of these less familiar postcultural theories, and about the ways in which they challenge current thinking and open other, positive and constructive, possibilities for thought and research in the Nineties.

Critical theory and the Marxist paradigm; limits of the Marxist paradigm - the case of the plural and decentred subject; the other body of man in Derrida, Levinas, Lacoue-Labarthe, Nancy and Borch-Jakobsen; the logic of both/and; factitive fictions and possible worlds; the critic as translator.
