Stanley Cavell Bibliography 1951-1995


Professor of Philosophy, Transylvania University

The following collects bibliographic material on Stanley Cavell (1926-) as an author and as a topic. I have published most of the entries assembled here in the following volumes under the following titles:  "Stanley Cavell: A Bibliography, 1951-1995," in The Cavell Reader, edited by Stephen Mulhall (Oxford: Basil Blackwell, Ltd., 1996), 390-414. ISBN 978-0631-19743-0;  "Stanley Cavell: A Bibliography, 1958-1994" in Stanley Cavell, Philosophical Passages: Wittgenstein, Emerson, Austin, Derrida, edited by Michael Payne (Oxford: Basil Blackwell Ltd., 1995), 187-97, ISBN 978-0631-19271-8; and "A Working Bibliography on Stanley Cavell," in The Senses of Stanley Cavell, edited by Richard Fleming and Michel Payne, Bucknell Review 32.1 (1989): 322-34. ISBN 978-0838751466. Additional entries not appearing in these volumes, also appear here, especially among the secondary literature (Cavell as topic). This posting also corrects errors introduced into the bibliography during the publication of Philosophical Passages.

See also Bernie Rhie’s remarkable Cavell Bibliography, which collects Cavell’s more recent material HERE; as well as more recent secondary work HERE.
