Geoffrey Hartman is a pivotal figure in twentieth-century literary thinking, especially in literary theory and its transformation into such fields as Holocauststudies, trauma studies, and work on witnessing and testimony. The essays inthis reader, preceded by an important autobiographical introduction, presentthe full range of Hartman's interests, which cover almost the entire field ofcontemporary literature and culture-from poetry through psychoanalysisand trauma studies to midrash and the media revolution.Throughout his career, starting with his earliest books on Romantic literature, Hartman has interrogated the possibility of a healing culture of vision, one thatcould travel from one civilization to another and could satisfy safely rather thanexacerbate self-destructively the repetitive human drive to reverse time andexact apocalyptic vengeance.

The theory and practice of literary studies has long been characterized by a virtually unnoticed asymmetry: the striking contrast between an intense effort to create a scientific foundation for the discipline and the equally striking paucity of efforts to systematically incorporate the reader models arising from these positions. This study attempts to develop a systematic approach to reader models and theories of readership.

History, literature, religion, myth, film, psychology, theory, and daily conversation all rely heavily on narrative. Cutting across many disciplines, narratology describes and analyzes the language of narrative with its regularly recurring patterns, deeply established conventions for transmission, and interpretive codes, whether in novels, cartoons, or case studies. ø Indispensable to writers, critics, and scholars in many fields, A Dictionary of Narratology provides quick and reliable access to terms and concepts that are defined, illustrated, and cross-referenced. All entries are keyed to articles or books in which the terms originated or are exemplified. This revised edition contains additional entries and updates some existing ones.

Was Menschen als schön empfinden, ist seit rund 150 Jahren nicht nur Gegenstand philosophischen Nachdenkens sondern auch systematischer experimenteller Untersuchungen. Dafür hat der Leipziger Philosoph und Experimentalpsychologe Gustav Theodor Fechner (1801-1887) entscheidende Grundlagen geschaffen. Die vorliegende Neuausgabe seiner 1876 veröffentlichten Vorschule der Aesthetik verbindet den Originaltext dieses Werks mit einem ausführlichen editorischen Kommentar, der die historischen Entstehungsbedingungen seines empirischen Zugangs zur Ästhetik, die Intentionen und das Methodenverständnis Fechners und die zwiespältige Rezeption seines Werks in der Fachwelt seiner Zeit nachvollziehbar macht. Diese werkgeschichtliche Analyse stützt sich über den Originaltext und zeitgenössische Kommentare hinaus auch auf die erstmals 2004 veröffentlichten Tagebücher Fechners, aus denen der persönliche Zugang des Autors zu seinem Forschungsgegenstand ersichtlich wird.

The Theory and Politics of Irony

Publisher: Routledge

ISBN: 1134937547

Category: Literary Criticism

Page: 264

The edge of irony, says Linda Hutcheon, is always a social and political edge. Irony depends upon interpretation; it happens in the tricky, unpredictable space between expression and understanding. Irony's Edge is a fascinating, compulsively readable study of the myriad forms and the effects of irony. It sets out, for the first time, a sustained, clear analysis of the theory and the political contexts of irony, using a wide range of references from contemporary culture. Examples extend from Madonna to Wagner, from a clever quip in conversation to a contentious exhibition in a museum. Irony's Edge outlines and then challenges all the major existing theories of irony, providing the most comprehensive and critically challengin theory of irony to date.

A History of Behavioral Psychology

Behaviorism has been the dominant force in the creation of modern American psychology. However, the unquestioned and unquestioning nature of this dominance has obfuscated the complexity of behaviorism. Control serves as an antidote to this historical myopia, providing the most comprehensive history of behaviorism yet written. Mills successfully balances the investigation of individual theorists and their contributions with analysis of the structures of assumption which underlie all behaviorist psychology, and with behaviorism's role as both creator and creature of larger American intellectual patterns, practices, and values. Furthermore, Mills provides a cogent critique of behaviorists' narrow attitudes toward human motivation, exploring how their positivism cripples their ability to account for the unobservable, inner factors that control behavior. Control's blend of history and criticism advances our understanding not only of behaviorism, but also the development of social science and positivism in twentieth-century America.

Cognition, Literature, and History models the ways in which cognitive and literary studies may collaborate and thereby mutually advance. It shows how understanding of underlying structures of mind can productively inform literary analysis and historical inquiry, and how formal and historical analysis of distinctive literary works can reciprocally enrich our understanding of those underlying structures. Applying the cognitive neuroscience of categorization, emotion, figurative thinking, narrativity, self-awareness, theory of mind, and wayfinding to the study of literary works and genres from diverse historical periods and cultures, the authors argue that literary experience proceeds from, qualitatively heightens, and selectively informs and even reforms our evolved and embodied capacities for thought and feeling. This volume investigates and locates the complex intersections of cognition, literature, and history in order to advance interdisciplinary discussion and research in poetics, literary history, and cognitive science.
