This is a volume of papers from a conference held at Harvard University in to honor the American philosopher Stanley Cavell b. The theme of the conference, "Cavell and Literary Studies," is perhaps testimony to the fact that, apart from philosophers who were among his devoted students at Harvard James Conant, Richard Eldridge, Richard Fleming, Timothy Gould, Stephen Mulhall, among many others , Cavell's most enthusiastic readers have been literary critics. During the last thirty years literary study has become less literary than social and political in its topics and debates. A short list of current critical approaches would include, under the rubric of "Cultural Studies," gender studies, ethnic studies, queer theory, postcolonial studies, and, more recently, cybernetics. What holds these pursuits together as a family is a suspicion that careful philological attention to the work of art or literature itself is an aestheticism that holds itself aloof from the real world.
