Rethinking Intellectual History: Texts, Contexts, Language

Cover
Cornell University Press, 1983 - 350 Seiten
Dominick LaCapra calls for a new view of intellectual history—one that will revitalize the importance of reading and interpreting significant texts. In ten essays, he reformulates the problem of the relation between the "great" texts of the Western tradition and their contexts. Seeking to refine "context" into a concept useful to historical research, LaCapra urges intellectual historians to learn from lessons and developments in contemporary literary criticism and philosophy, fields that have undertaken a radical reassessment of the reading of texts.
