Abstract

Gerhard Richter. Afterness: Figures of Following in Modern Thought and Aesthetics. New York: Columbia University Press, 2011. 245 pp. bloom : . . . I stand, so to speak, with an unposted letter bearing the extra regulation fee before the too late box of the general postoffice of human life. —James Joyce, Ulysses , “Nighttown” A philosopher of my generation, training, and inclination has to be afraid of books that risk thinking about an enormous stretch of the history of philosophy—say, from Kant to the present—especially if the same book traces developments in literature and the arts over that same arc of time.
