Summary
New Idols of the Cave offers a broad-based critical survey of recent anti-realist arguments in philosophy of science, cultural theory, hermeneutics, the sociology of knowledge, and the interpretation of quantum-mechanics. Christopher Norris's position will be welcome for its vigorous critique of these current ideas and presents strong counter-arguments in support of the realist case. Of particular interest is his heterodox reading of texts by Jacques Derrida who stands in a clearly marked line of descent from critical philosophers of science like Bachelard and Canguilhem. This book will be widely discussed for its cogent defense of critical realism in the natural and human sciences. It will also provoke debate through its revisionist reading of Derrida, its engagement with post-modernist theory and its detailed reconstruction of crucial episodes in the recent history of Anglo-American and Continental philosophy
