The social theory of literary theory: Comments on Eli thorkelson, “the silent social order of the theory classroom”
Social Epistemology 22 (2):197 – 201 (2008)
|Abstract||Considering the general analytical ability—whether applied to conceptual or social materials—and the quality of the argumentation characterising it, Eli Thorkelson's “The Silent Social Order of the Theory Classroom” is a remarkable piece, all the more so considering that it was an honours submission. Keeping this overall evaluation in mind throughout, I propose to confine the following short commentary to a critical assessment focused single-mindedly on the theoretical structure of the piece. To be able to do so in a comprehensible manner, I shall open with some brief remarks to place the piece in context as I understand it.|
