Deconstruction as Analytic Philosophy (Cultural Memory in the Present) (Paperback)
These twelve essays treat the thought of "deconstructive" philosophers from the perspective of analytic philosophy and relate the works of such thinkers as Davidson, Quine, and Wittgenstein to the writings of Derrida and de Man.
About the Author
Samuel C. Wheeler III is Professor of Philosophy at the University of Connecticut.
"Wheeler not only builds a bridge between continental and analytic philosophy; he also traces a useful tow path between philosophy and literary theory."—The Comparatist
"This is the best job of analytic-Continental bridgebuilding I have come across. Wheeler presents Davidson and Derrida, very convincingly, as two philosophers who have common enemies and are aiming at the same targets. His lucid and carefully argued book is full of original thinking, ingenious analogies, and spirited polemic." —Richard Rorty,Stanford University
