Just finished Chapter 4, titled ‘Splitting the Difference: Habermas’s Critique of Derrida’ by David Couzens Hoy, in this collection of essays. Clarity, insights and beautifully written. I’ve read his The Time of Our Lives : A Critical History of Temporality and found it of equal merit.

About stephenkmacksd

Rootless cosmopolitan,down at heels intellectual;would be writer. 'Polemic is a discourse of conflict, whose effect depends on a delicate balance between the requirements of truth and the enticements of anger, the duty to argue and the zest to inflame. Its rhetoric allows, even enforces, a certain figurative licence. Like epitaphs in Johnson’s adage, it is not under oath.' https://www.lrb.co.uk/v15/n20/perry-anderson/diary
