Antitheory has long been a venerable brand of theory and – although seemingly opposite – the two impulses have long been intertwined. Antitheory is the first book to explore this vexed relationship from the 20th century to the present day, examining antitheory both in its historical context and its current state. The book brings together leading scholars from a wide range of Humanities disciplines to ask such questions as:
· What is antitheory?
· What does it mean to be against theory in the new millennium?
· What is the current state of post-theory, the alleged deaths of theory, and the critique of critique?
