"The attention given to what I think is essential in my research--the semiotic and symbolic, rejection, negativity, practice, in particular their close connection with Husserl, Hagel, and Freud-- is unique among works which have previously dealt with my books." Julia Kristeva "For this reader's money. Payne's discussion is the best non--polemical introduction to Lacan he has come across." Jesse W. Nash, History of European Ideas "I have never read a more lucid explanation of Derrida's ideas." James R. Bennett, Style "Reading Theory is an enormously study and, given its complexity, remarkably accessible." John Schad, Review of English Studies
