Publisher's Synopsis

"This is a remarkable book: wide-ranging, resonant, and well-written; it is also reflective and personable, warm and engaging." -Philosophy and Literature
"With this book Caputo takes his place firmly as the foremost American, continental post-modernist . . . " -International Philosophical Quarterly
"One cannot but be impressed by the scope of Radical Hermeneutics." -Man and World
"Caputo's study is stunning in its scope and scholarship." -Robert E. Lauder, St. John's University, The Thomist
For John D. Caputo, hermeneutics means radical thinking without transcendental justification: attending to the ruptures and irregularities in existence before the metaphysics of presence has a chance to smooth them over. Radical Hermeneutics forges a closer collaboration between hermeneutics and deconstruction than has previously been attempted.
