I would like to thank Joshua Dienstag, Peter Gordon, Martin Jay, and Anson Rabinbach for critical comments on an earlier draft of this essay. I would also like to thank Michael Steinberg, director of the Cogut Center for the Humanities at Brown University, for inviting me to Brown and allowing me to benefit from discussion of this essay at the faculty seminar there in March 2006.
