Description

This is a remarkable book: wide-ranging, resonant, and well-written; it is also reflective and personable, warm and engaging." —Philosophy and Literature

With this book Caputo takes his place firmly as the foremost American, continental post-modernist... " —International Philosophical Quarterly

One cannot but be impressed by the scope of Radical Hermeneutics." —Man and World

Caputo’s study is stunning in its scope and scholarship." —Robert E. Lauder, St. John’s University, The Thomist

For John D. Caputo, hermeneutics means radical thinking without transcendental justification: attending to the ruptures and irregularities in existence before the metaphysics of presence has a chance to smooth them over. Radical Hermeneutics forges a closer collaboration between hermeneutics and deconstruction than has previously been attempted.
