Becoming Who We Are

Politics and Practical Philosophy in the Work of Stanley Cavell

Andrew Norris

  • This is the first volume on Cavell devoted to the role of politics and practical philosophy in his work, including the central role of Thompson Clarke in the development of Cavell's thought, as well as the break from teacher, JL Austin.
  • Highlights the similarities between Cavell's thought and that of Hegel; Cavell's reception and reinterpretation of Kant; and discusses at length his book, The Senses of Walden.
  • Criticizes libertarian and "classical liberal" accounts of freedom and citizenship.
