275 Reading-An Endless Controversy Hugh J. Silverman & Don Ihde (eds.) Hcrmeneutics Deconstruction. Albany: State University of New York Press, 1985, (307 pp. including notes and index). These twenty essays are selected from among those read at the 1981-82-83 annual SPEP gatherings held respectively at Northwestern University, Pennsylvania State University and in St. Louis. "The pre- occupation with issues in hermeneutics, in deconstruction, and in their interconnections was a dominant problematic for these three conferences" (x). Prior to the customary "introductory remarks" with which the volume begins, John Sallis translates the 1954 Heideggerian aphorism Was heisst Lesen? This short (pre) text, "What is called reading?," serves as a clue for understanding the appropriate questioning stance on the part of the reader/interpreter which this written work demands.
