Stathis Gourgouris

Traces the origins of the notion of “secular criticism’” from Edward Said’s invention to the developments of comparative literature as a field of critical knowledge. Links the capacity for critique to radical invention and political decision. Disputes the notion that critique is neutral, and argues that it forms part of the process of radical poiesis.

Keywords:   Secular Criticism, Critique, Poiesis, Edward Said, Talal Asad
