Description - Romanticism, Pragmatism and Deconstruction by Kathleen Wheeler

This book is an examination of three major literary, critical and philosophical movements in European and Anglo--American literature. It aims to show their differences (often pointed out) and their similarities (never yet demonstrated) and to make accessible recent post--structuralist theory. In particular, it offers an introductory exposition of American pragmatism whose insights into language and philosophy are discussed in relation both to Coleridge and to Derrida, while Derridaa s writings are related both to romanticism and pragmatism.
