Product Description: Wenn der Kanon von der Beliebigkeit der Texte abgelöst wird, theoretische Texte einen höheren Stellenwert als literarische haben, wenn kein Kanon mehr gelesen werden muß, so verzeichnet nicht nur der Student hier zuallererst einen Freizeitbonus - er muß weniger lesen; und wenn er die zentralen theoretischen Texte kennt, natürlich nicht alle, sondern nur die der Schule, der er sich anschließt, dann reicht das für jede Diskussion.
Genau diese Situation an deutschen Hochschulen greift Ulrich Horstmann mit seiner Kritik am Hegemonialstatus amerikanischer Theorieproduktion auf, die keine Grundsatzdiskussionen mehr möglich macht, kritikimmun einen eigenen Jargon wie eine Fremdsprache pflegt und nur noch in Theoriezirkeln unterwegs ist.
Die Experten «für hochtourenden Leerlauf und geisttötende Sterilität», die die Macht ergriffen haben und die zugleich von Kunst und Literatur nichts mehr wissen wollen, sondern die theoretischen Werke zum Maß aller Dinge erhoben haben, diese «ausgewiesenen Experten» entlarvt der Autor mit viel Witz und erinnert an die Grundtugenden der Skepsis und des Staunens.
Die 'Führerpersönlichkeiten' der Theorie (Derrida, Bloom, de Man, Greenblatt etc.) werden vorgeführt und in der Analyse dieser «totalitären Diskurse» gezeigt, was das bekannte mulmige Gefühl bei der Lektüre vieler theoretischer Texte auslöst. Interessante Gegenbeispiele präsentiert Horstmann in seinen Fallstudien jener englischsprachigen Wissenschaftler und Autoren, die auf unterschiedliche Weise versucht haben, Literatur und Theorie zu verbinden: David Lodge, Terry Eagleton, Malcolm Bradbury. Einzig George Steiner mit seiner «Ein-Mann-Kampagne wider den theoretischen Absolutismus» findet Gnade, denn dessen Konzepte stellen eine sinnvolle Alternative zu den herrschenden Theoriedebatten dar.
Horstmann nimmt in dieser originellen Streitschrift über das Trauerspiel Theoriedebatte kein Blatt vor den Mund und sieht sich hier in der Tradition der «Gentle Art of Making Enemies».

FAQ'S

1. How do textbook rentals work?
It’s simple. Begin by searching for your textbook by ISBN (10 or 13-digit number that can be found on the back cover of each book), title, author or keyword. Next select how long you would like to rent the book then add it to your cart. Repeat for each book you’re looking for. After completing the order we’ll ship them to you and you’ll also receive a prepaid mailer. Return your books in the mailer by your rental due date.
2. Is renting a textbook better than purchasing it?
We offer both! You can buy or rent the book through Campus Book Rentals. It’s up to you to decide which option best meets your educational needs.
3. How do I track my order?
Login to your account here, you’ll see your current rentals listed textbook rentals listed with a yellow box that says “track”. Click the box to view the tracking number. *Not all books will have a tracking number since they may be sent from one of our partners. Tracking numbers will be updated as they become available.
4. How do I return my books?
When you rent textbooks from Campus Book Rentals you’ll receive a prepaid mailer. When it’s nearing your due date you’ll place your books inside the mailer and take it to the nearest USPS drop box or Post Office. If you don’t receive a mailer you can print a return label from your account. Return shipping is prepaid so please use either of the two methods to ensure they arrive at the correct facility.
5. Can I write or highlight in my book?
Of course! Just remember that future students will rent the same book after you, so please be respectful.
6. How much money can renting my books save?
It depends on the book. Generally renting textbooks can save you up to 80% compared to a new textbook.
7. Are Campus Book Rentals’ books the same as my bookstore’s?
Yes! We only ship US edition textbooks, which are the same as your campus bookstore.
8. Do access codes or other supplements come with a textbook rental?
One time use access codes and other supplemental materials are NOT included with rental books and must be purchased separately.
9. What if I don’t return my rental?
If your book rental is not returned by the due date, your credit card will be charged a non-return fee, equal to the replacement value for the book.
10. Can I purchase my book after I rent it?
Certainty! You’re only charged the difference between what you already paid and the value of the book at the time you initially rented. Login to your account and choose to purchase your book and it’ll walk you through the checkout process.
