On April 14, Toril Moi will participate in a colloquium at the Oakley Center at Williams College, Williamstown. The discussion will focus on her (still unpublished) paper “Something that might resemble a kind of love”: Fantasy and Realism in Henrik Ibsen’s Little Eyolf.” For more information, contact The Oakley Center.

My new essay called: ‘”They practice their trades in different worlds”: Concepts in Poststructuralism and Ordinary Language Philosophy’ is now available in the latest issue of New Literary History 40.4 (Autumn 2009), pp. 801-824. By focusing on their different views of concepts, the essay shows that Derrida and Wittgenstein have radically different ideas about what the purpose of philosophy is. The essay is an attempt to show why it is so difficult to have a meaningful dialogue between the two intellectual traditions. A pdf file is now available under “Essays”.
