Notre Dame Philosophical Reviews has a new book review of François Cusset, French Theory: How Foucault, Derrida, Deleuze, & Co. Transformed the Intellectual Life of the United States. Review by Ethan Kleinberg.
According to the standard story, French theory is much beloved over here by certain strands of society, cultural theorists, cultural anthrologists and the like, but “erased” in France where they are not studied (supposedly). Of course certain strands of science (this is an example) also hate what they know of “pomo” and the names of Foucault and Derrida.
