The "ancient quarrel" among philosophy and literature turns out to were resolved as soon as and for all with the popularity that philosophy and the humanities can be allies rather than enemies. Critical Excess examines intimately the paintings of 5 thinkers who've had a massive, ongoing influence at the examine of literature and movie: Jacques Derrida, Gilles Deleuze, Emmanuel Levinas, Slavoj Žižek, and Stanley Cavell. Their ways are very varied from each other, yet they each one make unforeseen interpretive leaps that render their readings exhilarating and unnerving. yet do they pass too some distance? Does a scribbled notice left in the back of by way of Nietzsche rather let us know in regards to the nature of textuality? Can Hitchcock actually inform you "everything you usually desired to find out about Lacan"? Does the blanket hung up in a inn room invoke the Kantian divide among the knowable out of the ordinary international and the unknowable issues in themselves? Contextualizing the paintings of the 5 thinkers within the highbrow debates to which they give a contribution, this booklet analyzes the stakes and benefits of "overreading."
