A superb Anthology. Several famous thinkers and philosophers (from Plato to Freud) as well as some not so well known contemporaries are introduced succinctly followed by a selection of some of their key writings. First class editorial work, comprehensively referenced and analysed, this book could introduce to an open minded reader new concepts and ways of perceiving and understanding the world as formulated by influential thinkers whose works he could look into more thoroughly after getting a first idea. Indispensable. ( )

A lot of information. Peruse with a ready and open mind, and you will be amazed. The author introductions are wonderful. ( )

The Norton Anthology of Theory and Criticism presents a staggeringly varied collection of the most influential critical statements from the classical era to the present day.

The Norton Anthology of Theory and Criticism offers nearly twice the number of selections in other leading anthologies and more twentieth-century selections than any other text (including anthologies devoted solely to the twentieth century).
