This book is a series of essays and as with all such books, some are good and some are not. Rorty's review of 'The Claim of Reason' is good, and makes the argument - what is the status and importance of skepticism for life? Conant's 'Cavell and the Concept of America' is bizarre.
It's that we find it unutterably bizarre. The oddity of Conant's argument that 'America' is a really important ideal is brought home by his historical illiteracy: actually, 'America' was not founded by people thinking to themselves, 'what kind of nation do we want? Not 'at war,' of course. Just dropping a lot of bombs. A more important investigation than 'is Cavell's use of 'America' like Kierkegaard's use of 'Christian'' might be 'why are Americans who consider themselves liberal [since for 'conservatives' the answer is a more straightforward nationalism that at least has the benefit of honesty] so obsessed with defining the American Novelist, the American Poet, the American Philosopher and so on?
Critchley's 'Cavell's 'Romanticism,' taken from his book 'Very Little Almost Nothing,' which I would now like even more to read, is interesting, particularly on the question of Cavell's focus on America.
Critchley's key claim is that Cavell is at his best when he's 'wriggling' between criteria i. This ignores, though, the most important alternative: that the criteria we have are the only ones we can have, that they are historically grounded, and that 'criteria' is a worse term for this than, say, Hegel's use of the term 'concept,' which allows for historical development.
That's a large disagreement with post-Wittgensteinian philosophy, though. Critchley's essay is great. Laugier's essay is good, but almost as torturous to read as Cavell. She's after big game, which is nice, although her 'naturalism,' honestly, strikes me as a little foolish. Goodman's essay is dull. Unless you care about how Dewey influenced Wittgenstein.
Then you might like it. I skipped the essay on film. Not enough time. Stewart's essay isn't particularly exciting, a shame since it was the one I really wanted to read. Turns out that Cavell's work isn't quoted by literary critics because First book of philosophy I've read in a while. Feels good to get back in the saddle.
