Wednesday 1 August 2012

«My aim here has been to reveal or flesh out how cavell’s signature claim from The Politics of lnterpretation - the claim that reading has the structure of transference - is framed, on one side, by a picture of reading as redemption and, on the other, by Cavell’s summary assertion that “what I am producing here . . . might be thought of as a theology of reading.”»
