Sample text

First, there appears to be a contradiction. That is, to write an essay that directs the attention to the “terminess” (my term) of all terms used in the study of writing but then to exempt the term writing from such scrutiny by treating it as a special case is to admit that it is our field’s god term. ) This seems disingenuous, or at least inconsistent, given the “perpetually ‘deconstructive’ attitude” I mentioned earlier. But it is very hard to fi nd the right terms with which to write about terms, and at any rate, whereas writing may be our field’s god term, it does not appear to be our field’s object of inquiry.

It seems, then, that provoking new theories of writing is impossible. Equally, it seems that this impossibility makes for a paradox that is the most important thing for a theorist of writing to know. ” And it makes the writing of theories of writing a potentially affi rmative, enthusiastic, and even happy undertaking. In fact, I believe such work, undertaken in such a spirit, makes the prospects for writing theory good even though impossible: that is, if we defi ne the good not by the achievement of a specific “knowledge” outcome but by the attainment of a procedural disposition to accompany our ongoing deconstructive attitude.
