Revolution of the ordinary : literary studies after Wittgenstein, Austin, and Cavell by Toril Moi( Book )
6 editions published between 2017 and 2018 in English and held by 153 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

Språk og oppmerksomhet by Toril Moi( Book )
5 editions published in 2013 in Norwegian and held by 7 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
