Example text

It is one main argument of this essay that literary criticism has developed historically alongside the efforts of Enlightenment thought to combat the forces of religious prejudice, unreason and dogma. Critical theory—the handiest coverterm for a range of competing schools and ideas—could scarcely have emerged in anything like its current form without this background history of brave endeavour on the part of Spinoza and other such liberalizing thinkers. And it is 27 INTRODUCTION all the more important to bear these facts in mind at a time when Enlightenment values are again under attack, not only from the religiousfundamentalist quarter but also from various ‘postmodernist’ gurus who reject the whole legacy of critical reason as just another species of what Nietzche diagnosed as the willto-power masquerading as pure, disinterested truth (see Norris, 1988).
