Critical Expressivism is an ambitious attempt to re-appropriate intellectual territory that has more often been charted by its detractors than by its proponents. Indeed/ as Peter Elbow observes in his contribution to this volume/ "As far as I can tell/ the term 'expressivist' was coined and used only by people who wanted a word for people they disapproved of and wanted to discredit." The editors and contributors to this collection invite readers to join them in a new conversation/ one informed by "a belief that the term expressivism continues to have a vitally important function in our field."
