Fish on Deconstruction

The noted American literary critic Stanley Fish has written an excellent summary of postmodern philosophy in his latest column for the NY Times. Especially helpful is his presentation of Anglo-American and Continental postmodernists as offering similar, rather than competing, solutions to Enlightenment problematics. Of course, were he to bring postmodern Aristotelians like Alasdair MacIntyre into the picture, his narrative would become much more complicated. But a useful introduction nonetheless.
