      The lectures collected under the title The Critic as Anti-Philosopher show much of that eccentric form. The very first essay, ‘Justifying One’s Valuation of Blake’, is a peculiar piece of rhetoric more about Eliot than Blake while insisting that its use of Eliot is a ‘means of economy’.Released on: Octo a radical critic of the techniques and doctrines of modern science and philosophy. The anti-philosopher disputes the possibility of objectivity and universality and rejects the absolute authority of reason; anti-philosophers also reject the possibility of neutral stance or perspective's perspective.

    The reason for the subtitle, Anti-Philosophy 3, is that the present treatment of Lacan follows a pair of year-long seminars on Nietzsche and Wittgenstein (both anti-philosophers in Badiou's view) while preceding another on St. Paul (also treated as an anti-philosopher). What Badiou means by anti-philosophy is the central question of this review. The Critic As Anti-Philosopher: Essays and Papers: ISBN () Hardcover, Univ of Georgia Pr, Gerard Manley Hopkins: A critical symposium.

    Leavis’ subjects of literary criticism included Blake, Wordsworth, Coleridge, Conrad, Coleridge, Arnold, James, Hopkins, Hardy, Joyce, and Dickens, among others. Leavis did admire the philosophical writings of Michael Polanyi, author of “Knowing and Being,” and so his “anti-philosopher” stance was selective rather than universal.   I hold in my hands a collection of essays and papers by the great English literary critic F.R. Leavis entitled “The Critic as Anti-Philosopher.” The companions to this book include Dickens the Novelist, Nor Shall My Sword, The Living Principle: “English” as a Discipline of Thought, and Thought.
