Edinburgh Encyclopedia of Modern Criticism and Theory by Julian Wolfreys
Book DescriptionA guide to the history and development of modern criticism in the humanities. The work takes the reader through introductions to historically influential philosophers, literary critics, schools of thought and movements from Spinoza and Descartes to phenomenology and Heidegger, before turning to its three principal areas or critical attention: Europe, North America and Great Britain. Addressing the development of literary criticism and theory within the cultural, ideological and institutional parameters of their growth, this volume provides simultaneously an introduction to theoretical engagement in the humanities, while also offering critical interventions into contemporary theory and criticism. Furthermore, while remaining aware of the importance of various contexts within which the criticism has grown, the essays also concern themselves with the cross-fertilization between the various academic and intellectual cultures under consideration.

Haunted Experience, Paperback (September 2016)
Uses the lenses of perception, memory and appearance to explore loss - in our experience, our imagination, in literature and film. Citing Heidegger, Derrida, Lacan, Cixous, Celan, Husserl, Woolf, Joyce, Hegel, Badiou, Rilke, Merleau-Ponty, Stockhausen and True Detective, Wolfreys offers a multi-layered unpeeling of loss in life and literature.
Dickens's London, Paperback (April 2015)
Taking Walter Benjamin's Arcades Project as an inspiration, this book offers a project that opens a dialogue between phenomenology, philosophy and the Dickensian representation of the city in all its forms. It provides dual focus on methodology and the historicity of Dickensian urban consciousness.
Derrida Wordbook, Paperback (April 2015)» View all books by Julian Wolfreys
While it makes no claims to being encyclopaedic in its coverage, this book seeks to accommodate the implications of Jacques Derrida's writings and thoughts, through an expository engagement with a series of words having significance throughout Derrida's text, and across the years of his publishing career.
