Reviews - What do customers think about Alterities: Criticism, History, Representation?
the radical otherness of our world May 27, 2009
Docherty's book is a response to the growing realization that modern criticism - even in its most apparantly oppositional forms - remains caught up within the limitations of a philosophy of identity. The consequence for such criticism is that it offers only the solace of self-legitemation for the subject of criticism, at the cost of ignoring its material and historical objects. The contention of Alterities is that it is only through a serious critical attention to the radical otherness of the world outside consciousness, with all the difficulties entailed in attending to an aesthetic beyond representation, that we will be allowed to arrive at a historical and materialist criticism. In making this claim, Docherty rehabilitates the question of why we bother about art, and proposes new moodes of critical engagement with contemporary culture. Thomas Docherty is Professor of English Literature at the University of Kent and Canterbury, and he here proposes valid, worthwhile and important adjustments to the rut of postmodern theory without ever seeming officious or self-serving. A considerable work of theory that deserve a much wider audience thus far received.
