Nietzsche characterised the philosopher as the man of tomorrow and the day after tomorrow - a description befitting Stanley Cavell, with his long-time interest in freedom in the face of an uncertain future. This interest, particularly in the role of language in freedom of the will, is fully engaged in this volume, a collection of retrospective and forward-thinking essays on performative language and on performances in which the question of freedom is the underlying concern.
