from the manufacturer

In the last decades of the twentieth century, French poststructuralist theory transformed the humanities; it also met with resistance and today we frequently hear that theory is dead. In this brilliantly argued volume, Colin Davis: reconsiders key arguments for and against theory, identifying significant misreadingsreassesses the contribution of poststructuralist thought to the critical issues of knowledge, ethics, hope and identitysheds new light on the work of Jean-Franois Lyotard, Emmanuel Levinas, Louis Althusser and Julia Kristeva in a stunning series of readingsoffers a fresh perspective on recent debates around the death of theory. In closing he argues that theory may change, but it will not go away. After poststructuralism, then, comes the afterlife of poststructuralism. Wonderfully accessible, this is an account of the past and present fortunes of theory, suitable for anyone researching, teaching, or studying in the field. And yet it is much more than this. Colin Davis provides a way forward for the humanities - a way forward in which theory will play a crucial part.
