Certainly, Jerome McGann's theory of textuality has undergone a comparable process of reception. For someone like myself, who has been educated in the shadows of Derrida, Wittgenstein and Quine, McGann's ideas seem pretty uncontroversial. But back in the early 90's, the view advanced within The Textual Condition was met with incredulity and [...]

    2. This is somewhat dated now, but good for a sense of the field (textual studies) before the web disrupted everything. McGann cares about context.
