Shadows are holes in light. We see them all the time, and sometimes we notice them, but their part in our visual experience of the world is mysterious. In this book, an art historian draws on contemporary cognitive science, eighteenth-century theories of visual perception, and art history to discuss shadows and the visual knowledge they can offer.

"Kavanagh leaves us with a series of specific, provocative insights into several novels and a solid basis for a cultural history of gambling under the ancien regime."-- Eighteenth-Century Fiction. "This is an important study, brilliantly argued on its own terms, but more importantly, a study that is bound to have major implications for the way we, critics, will understand the French Enlightenment."--Josue V. Harari, Emory University.

David Michael Levin's ongoing exploration of the moral character and enlightenment-potential of vision takes a new direction in The Philosopher's Gaze. Levin examines texts by Descartes, Husserl, Wittgenstein, Nietzsche, Heidegger, Benjamin, Merleau-Ponty, and Lévinas, using our culturally dominant mode of perception and the philosophical discourse it has generated as the site for his critical reflections on the moral culture in which we are living. In Levin's view, all these philosophers attempted to understand, one way or another, the distinctive pathologies of the modern age. But every one also attempted to envision—if only through the faintest of traces, traces of mutual recognition, traces of another way of looking and seeing—the prospects for a radically different lifeworld. The world, after all, inevitably reflects back to us the character, the reach and range, of our vision. In these provocative essays, the author draws on the language of hermeneutical phenomenology and at the same time refines phenomenology itself as a method of working with our experience and thinking critically about the culture in which we live.

What place do ethical concerns have in intellectual life today? Why do ethical issues so often intrude in discussions of literature, criticism, and culture? And why are ethical issues so often unresolved? In short, why does ethics seem to be both urgent and problematic? In this book, the noted critic Geoffrey Galt Harpham seeks to transform the contemporary understanding of ethics by arguing that it not only "shadows" other discourses but is itself "shadowed." For Harpham, ethics is not a source of rules or norms, but a way of structuring questions. A conflicted discourse, ethics marks the point where literature becomes conceptually rigorous and theory becomes humanised. In addition to deeply original meditations on such subjects as rationality, aesthetics, and "enlightenment," Shadows of Ethics contains probing accounts of the work of such contemporary thinkers as Fredric Jameson, Edward Said, Jacques Derrida, Noam Chomsky, Geoffrey Hartman, Robert Nozick, and Martha Nussbaum. In a final essay called "Imagining the Center," Harpham attacks the current academic obsession with marginality and challenges critics to occupy-imaginatively and theoretically - a position of political and intellectual power. Shadows of Ethics will interest literary critics, scholars in philosophy and postmodernism, and theorists interested in the relationship between ethics and their discipline.
