This chapter argues that the moment “after critique” needs to be thought of as the effect of multiple, overlapping causes. These causes include (a) the psycho-biographical development of literary critics; (b) the patterns of institutional time; (c) the relation between the state and the university; (d) a fetishization of novelty; and (e) the ways in which we think about history. It argues for rethinking the current moment within the framework of new temporalities oriented toward hope.
