Dominick LaCapra calls for a new view of intellectual history-one that will revitalize the importance of reading and interpreting significant texts. In ten essays, he reformulates the problem of the relation between the great texts of the Western tradition and their contexts. Seeking to refine context into a concept useful to historical research, LaCapra urges intellectual historians to learn from lessons and developments in contemporary literary criticism and philosophy, fields that have undertaken a radical reassessment of the reading of texts.
