Coleridge's afterlives( Book )

3 editions published in 2008 in English and held by 214 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"The afterlives of Samuel Taylor Coleridge (1772-1834) appear in a vast spectrum of writers throughout the nineteenth century and reach into the heart of modern literary theory. In this volume, fourteen commissioned essays examine for the first time the breadth and variety of Coleridge's afterlives. Topics include philosophy, gender, education, American literature, South Asian literature, aesthetics, narrative, literary criticism, and poetry. Coleridge's Afterlives offers new research to the scholar, maps complex territory for the student, and constitutes a significant resource for study across a number of literary movements, genres, and periods."--Jacket

Platonic Coleridge by James Vigus( Book )

13 editions published between 2006 and 2017 in English and held by 154 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"The ambivalent curiosity of the young poet Samuel Taylor Coleridge (1772-1834) towards Plato - 'but I love Plato - his dear gorgeous nonsense!' - soon developed into a philosophical project, and the mature Coleridge proclaimed himself a reviver of Plato's unwritten or esoteric 'systems'. James Vigus's study traces Coleridge's discovery of a Plato marginalised in the universities, and examines his use of German sources on the 'divine philosopher', and his Platonic interpretation of Kant's epistemology. It compares Coleridge's figurations of poetic inspiration with models in the Platonic dialogues, and investigates whether Coleridge's esoteric 'system' of philosophy ultimately fulfilled the Republic's notorious banishment of poetry."
Symbol and intuition : comparative studies in Kantian and Romantic-period aesthetics by Helmut Hühn( Book )

7 editions published between 2011 and 2017 in English and held by 146 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"That a symbolic object or work of art participates in what it signifies, as a part within a whole, was a controversial claim discussed with particular intensity in the wake of Immanuel Kant's Critique of Judgment. It informed the aesthetic theories of a constellation of writers in Jena and Weimar around 1800, including Moritz, Goethe, Schelling and Hegel. Yet the twin concepts of symbol and intuition were not only tools of literary and mythological criticism: they were integral even to questions of epistemology and methodology in the fields of theology, metaphysics, history and natural philosophy. The international contributors to this volume further explore how both the explanatory potential and peculiar dissatisfactions of the symbol entered the Anglo-American discourse, focusing on Coleridge, Crabb Robinson and Emerson. Contemporary debates about the claims of symbolic as opposed to allegorical art are kept in view throughout."
Shandean humour in English and German literature and philosophy by James Vigus( Book )

13 editions published between 2012 and 2017 in English and held by 142 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"One of many writers inspired by Laurence Sterne's Tristram Shandy, the German novelist Jean Paul Richter coined the term 'Shandean humour' in his work of aesthetic theory. The essays in this volume investigate how Sterne's humour functions, the reasons for its enduring appeal, and what role it played in identity-construction and in the representation of melancholy. In tracing its hitherto under-recognised impact both on literary writers, such as Jean Paul and Herman Melville, and on philosophers, including Hegel and Marx, the collection reveals that Shandean humour is a Grenzganger - a point of commerce not only between Anglophone and German discourses, but also between literature and philosophy. Klaus Vieweg is Professor of Philosophy at the Friedrich Schiller University of Jena; James Vigus is postdoctoral research fellow at the Department of English and American Studies, Ludwig Maximilian University of Munich; Kathleen M. Wheeler is Reader in English Literature at the University of Cambridge."
Essays on Kant, Schelling, and German aesthetics by Henry Crabb Robinson( Book )

4 editions published in 2010 in English and held by 42 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

As a student at the University of Jena at the beginning of the nineteenth century, Henry Crabb Robinson (1775-1867) became the outstanding English mediator of the revolution in German thought. For the first time, this volume collects his early writings, both published and unpublished. The contents include 'Letters on the Philosophy of Kant' and notes from F.W.J. Schelling's lectures on the philosophy of art. Further, Robinson's private lectures for Madame de Staël are presented with her marginalia. In the intellectual history of Romanticism, Robinson emerges as a major figure whose lucid and entertaining essays can still guide the modern reader through the key German texts

The pirc in black and white by James Vigus( Book )

5 editions published between 2007 and 2009 in English and German and held by 26 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"The Pirc is an ambitious counter-attacking response to White<U+2019>s most popular opening move, 1 e4. Black<U+2019>s philosophy is based around allowing White to build a large and impressive-looking pawn centre, only to plot its downfall by attacking it with pieces or timely pawn strikes. When it works, the results can be spectacular, but of course this method of play carries with it some danger; if Black is not careful he runs the risk of simply being swamped in the centre. Such a provocative approach has found favour with a line of uncompromising Grandmasters including former Soviet Champion Alexander Beliavsky and Mikhail Gurevich.In this comprehensive guide, opening expert James Vigus provides an up-to-date appraisal of the Pirc and its many variations. Drawing upon his vast experience in this opening, Vigus examines in depth the traditional main lines, the fashionable alternatives and the tricky sidelines, while outlining the characteristic tactical and positional ideas for both colours. A study of this book will allow the reader to confidently play these positions with either White or Black. Essential coverage of a dynamic opening, written by a Pirc expert; ideal for club and tournament players"--Back cover
