Leavisian Thinking
Abstract

Abstract:

F. R. Leavis found that he could not do his work in literary and cultural criticism without clarifying and correcting some common notions about language, meaning, subjectivity, and objectivity. In the course of the struggle of this nonphilosopher with questions about judgment and truth, he came to an understanding of the place of nonscientific thinking in the world that should be considered by more orthodox philosophers.
