Revolution of the ordinary : literary studies after Wittgenstein, Austin, and Cavell by Toril Moi( Book )

8 editions published between 2017 and 2018 in English and held by 269 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This radically original book argues for the power of ordinary language philosophy - a tradition inaugurated by Ludwig Wittgenstein and J. L. Austin, and extended by Stanley Cavell - to transform literary studies. In engaging and lucid prose, Toril Moi demonstrates this philosophy's unique ability to lay bare the connections between words and the world, dispel the notion of literature as a monolithic concept, and teach readers how to learn from a literary text. Moi first introduces Wittgenstein's vision of language and theory, which refuses to reduce language to a matter of naming or representation, considers theory's desire for generality doomed to failure, and brings out the philosophical power of the particular case. Contrasting ordinary language philosophy with dominant strands of Saussurean and post-Saussurean thought, she highlights the former's originality, critical power, and potential for creative use. Finally, she challenges the belief that good critics always read below the surface, proposing instead an innovative view of texts as expression and action, and of reading as an act of acknowledgment. Intervening in cutting-edge debates while bringing Wittgenstein, Austin, and Cavell to new readers, 'Revolution of the Ordinary' will appeal beyond literary studies to anyone looking for a philosophically serious account of why words matter

Extracted from Toril Moi's 'What Is a Woman?', this intervention in feminist theory rethinks the legacy of Simone de Beauvoir, and shows that 'The Second Sex', properly read, offers solutions to urgent contemporary problems. These essays provide a third way for feminism, beyond the current stalemate between essentialism and constructionism
The master builder and other plays : with Little Eyolf, John Gabriel Borkman and When we dead awaken by Henrik Ibsen( Book )

2 editions published in 2014 in English and held by 121 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Ibsen's last four plays were sensational bestsellers, performed in theatres across Europe. These final works, exploring sexuality and death, the conflict between generations, the drive for creativity and the frailty of the body, cemented Ibsen's dramatic reputation, and continue to fuel debate today on whether they celebrate freedom and love or are instead savagely ironic studies of our shared human flaws. These new translations, the first to be based on the latest critical edition of Ibsen's works, offer the best versions available in English."--Page 4 of cover

Ibsens modernisme by Toril Moi( Book )

7 editions published in 2006 in Norwegian and Norwegian and held by 16 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Forfatteren argumenterer i denne boken at Ibsen har betydd like mye for teater som Baudelaire betydde for moderne poesi, Flaubert for romanen og Manet for moderne maleri. Ibsen settes dermed inn i en europeisk sammenheng, og Moi drøfter dikterens kulturelle ressurser og den estetiske debatten i hans samtid. Hun er spesielt opptatt av Ibsens visuelle verden, visuell underholdning, maleri og teater. Boken fokuserer også sterkt på Ibsens kvinner, språk og mening, ekteskap og frihet, og synet på det hverdagslige. Moi ønsker å revidere forståelsen av realisme og modernisme og skaper dermed et nytt bilde av Ibsen og samtidig en ny forståelse av litteraturhistorien. Boken lanseres parallelt på engelsk. Toril Moi er professor i litteraturvitenskap ved Duke University i USA
Hva er en kvinne? : Kjønn og kropp i feministisk teori by Toril Moi( Book )

9 editions published between 1998 and 2002 in Norwegian and Norwegian and held by 12 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

I denne boken spør Toril Moi hvordan man best kan forstå kjønn. Er kroppen grunnlaget for kjønn, eller erkjønn rett og slett en sosial norm? Blir kjønn noe lettere å forstå dersom vi omhyggelig skiller mellom biologisk og sosialt kjønn? Moi gir en kritisk analyse av poststrukturalistenes syn på kjønn, og viser at Simone de Beauvoirs fenomenologiske forståelse av hva det betyr å ha en kjønnet kropp,er dypt relevant og radikalt alternativ både til poststrukturalismen og andre utbredte kvinnelighetsteorier. Det er et ambisiøst bidrag til det internasjonale feministiske forskningen, skrevet på engelsk som et bidrag til boken "What is a woman? And other essays" som utgis senere i år. Litt.l.og reg

Språk og oppmerksomhet by Toril Moi( Book )

6 editions published in 2013 in Norwegian and Norwegian and held by 8 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Toril Mois essay "Språk og oppmerksomhet" er den første av 12 tekster i "Aschehoug Stemmer"--Serien, som markerer 100-årsjubileet for kvinners stemmerett i Norge. Toril Moi diskuterer hvordan vår tenkning om moral i for stor grad er preget av et uoppmerksomt språk. Med diskusjoner av Iris Murdoch, Lille Eyolf og med et blikk på rettsaken mot Anders Behring Breivik, stiller Moi spørsmål om hvordan vi skal snakke om det vi ser for virkelig å forstå hverandre. Til grunn for våre moralske vurderinger og vår forståelse av verden må vi anlegge det Moi kaller "et rettferdig og kjærlig blikk". Hva som ligger i det - og hvor vanskelig det er - blir den lille boken en diskusjon av. I år er det 100 år siden kvinner fikk stemmerett i Norge. I forbindelse med jubileet utgis "Aschehoug Stemmer", en serie med 12 utgivelser - én for hver måned - skrevet av 12 kvinner som vil bidra til den offentlige debatten. "Stemmer" er en arena for dagens samfunnsspørsmål. Tekstene kan leses frittstående, men samlet vil de gi et bilde av hva som rører seg i Norge i 2013. Prosjektet handler ikke om hva det vil si å være kvinne, men hva kvinner vil si
