From the Editor


The issue opens with two papers whose methodology is particularly congenial to the partial-answers agenda of the journal. Cora Diamond’s article brings together selected literary works and Stanley Cavell’s skeptical philosophy, engaging parts of reality that resist imagination and thought. Mara Beller’s article demonstrates the workings of dialogicity and addressivity in scientific and literary discourse.

            Partial Answers 1/2 goes on to present the first installment of papers that deal with literature and the ideas of space. The issues of space here range from the ecology of the imagination (Langen), through alien social spaces (Clabough) and spaces that subvert the distinction between exteriority and interiority (Borg), to spatial figures that help poetry restore the individual sense of selfhood (Kearful). Closest to the concern with the space of rather than in literature is the paper on the staging of the protagonists’ world in the question-and-answer discourse of Joyce’s “Ithaca” (Brown).
