<p>The Doppelg&auml;nger or Double presents literature as the &quot;double&quot; of philosophy. There are historical reasons for this. The genesis of the Doppelg&auml;nger is literature's response to the philosophical focus on subjectivity. The Doppelg&auml;nger was coined by the German author Jean Paul in 1796 as a critique of Idealism's assertion of subjective autonomy, individuality and human agency. This critique prefigures post-War extrapolations of the subject as decentred. From this perspective, the Doppelg&auml;nger has a &quot;family resemblance&quot; to current conceptualizations of subjectivity. It becomes the emblematic subject of modernity.<br />This is the first significant study on the Doppelg&auml;nger's influence on philosophical thought. The Doppelg&auml;nger emerges as a hidden and unexplored element both in conceptions of subjectivity and in philosophy's relation to literature. Vardoulakis demonstrates this by employing the Doppelg&auml;nger to read literature philosophically and to read philosophy as literature. The Doppelg&auml;nger then appears instrumental in the self-conception of both literature and philosophy.</p>
