"Textualities" is both an account of recent developments in Continental philosophy and a demonstration of philosophy as a distinctive theoretical practice of its own. It can be read as a presentation and evaluation of major figures from Heidegger and Merleau-Ponty to Focault and Derrida with detailed acconts of Nietzsche, Sartre, Levi-Strauss, Barthes, Blanchot and Kristeva.

Industry Reviews

"Textualities is a book to be read both as an historical journey into the recent philosophy of he text and as an effort to conciliate theoretical directions that have sometimes seemed to be at war, or which have simply become dated.." -The Comparatist, Vol 20 (1996): 196
