Habjan: Ordinary Literature Philosophy

Jernej Habjan, member of the ICLA theory committee, has published Ordinary Literature Philosophy, the first book-length Lacanian reading of J. L. Austin’s ordinary language philosophy as it has been received in the continental tradition by Jacques Derrida and Judith Butler as well as by Jacques Rancière and Oswald Ducrot. In this tradition, Austin’s general theory of speech acts has been neglected on behalf of his special theory of the performative as well as upgraded with a new attention to the literary and the aesthetic. The book was published by Bloomsbury Academic.
