This collection of interviews, reflections, and creative criticism presents Christopher Norris's vigorous polemics with Hayden White, Michel Foucault, Jean Baudrillard, Jean-Francois Lyotard, Thomas Kuhn, Emmanuel Levinas, Pierre Bourdieu, Richard Rorty, and Stanley Fish. Alongside Norris's uncompromising critiques there emerge passages of close and careful reading of Jacques Derrida's texts, as he cites and reiterates Derrida's philosophical contexts in the works of Immanuel Kant, Gaston Bachelard, and Georges Canguilhem, and in the current discursive fields of epistemology and philosophy of science. The book also offers a coda of essays on Frank Kermode, Terry Eagleton, and Terence Hawkes. This collection, prefaced with the author's own academic memoir, provides an accessible and provocative introduction to Norris's critical thought, and highlights the wide range of his interests and philosophical engagements.

MEDIA REVIEWS

"Norris is the most philosophically astute of all British literary theorists, and increasingly one of the most politically important, subjecting the jaded scepticisms of our time to a scintillating critique." --Terry Eagleton, Distinguished Professor of English Literature, University of Lancaster


"David Jonathan Y. Bayot has put together several terrific interviews and less well-known works by Christopher Norris. It makes for a scintillating read, and offers an exhilarating ride across several decades and some of the most brilliant interventions - genuine occasions - in philosophical criticism. Norris has been a guide through deconstruction for an entire international generation of scholars; but he is also a leader, an independent thinker whose voice cuts across and through these pages with urgency, clarity, and utter commitment to serious thinking." --Thomas Docherty, Professor of English and Comparative Literature, University of Warwick
