To our readers: please help us improve our Cavell bibliographies

Dear readers,

As some of you know, this blog features two Cavell-related bibliographies, one listing primary works by Prof. Cavell himself, and the other listing secondary works about Prof. Cavell’s writings. We are wondering if you might do us a big favor: would you mind looking these two bibliographies over, and letting us know if you notice any omissions? These two bibliographies are accessed quite often (hundreds of times since we first published them), so we want to make sure that they are as complete and up-to-date as possible. We would very much appreciate your help in achieving that goal. If you notice a text that is missing, please let us know by leaving a comment or by sending us an email. To email us, please click here.

Thank you so much!

The editors

One thought on “To our readers: please help us improve our Cavell bibliographies

  1. Byron Davies, who is a graduate student in the Philosophy Ph.D. program at Harvard, kindly sent us the following response, by email, to our request for help with our Cavell bibliographies. I wanted to thank him for these very helpful suggestions and corrections, which I’ve begun to incorporate into the bibliographies.

    Please keep the tips coming!



    I read the request on the OLP and Literary Studies site for readers to locate any omissions to the two Cavell bibliographies. I’ve tried my best. Here are some suggestions.

    For the list of primary works:
    Foreword to 2002 English edition of Shoshana Felman, The Scandal of the Speaking Body: Don Juan with J.L. Austin, or Seduction in Two Languages (Stanford: Stanford UP, 2002). Reprinted in The Claims of Literature: A Shoshana Felman Reader, ed. by Emily Sun, Eyal Peretz, and Ulrich Baer (New York: Fordham University Press, 2007).

    Preface to 2002 edition of Robert Warshow’s The Immediate Experience: Movies, Comics, Theatre, and Other Aspects of Popular Culture (Cambridge, Massachusetts: Harvard UP, 2002)

    Also, a correction: Cavell’s dissertation was approved in 1961, not 1974

    For the list of secondary works:
    Fodor, Jerry and Jerrold Katz. “The Availability of What We Say.” The Philosophical Review 72.1 (1963): 57-71.

    Bates, Stanley and Ted Cohen. “More on What We Say.” Metaphilosophy 3.1 (1972): 1-24.

    Haase, Mathias. “Drei Formen der Ersten Person Plural.” Deutsche Zeitschrift für Philosophie 55.2 (2007): 225-43.

    Finally: there are very good (but by now pretty old) bibliographies in The Senses of Stanley Cavell (ed. by Richard Fleming and Michael Payne) and The Cavell Reader (ed. by Stephen Mulhall). I happen to have the former right now in front of me, and it’s got tons and tons of stuff.

    Good luck with this. And of course I’m looking forward to the conference in October.

    Best wishes,
