Man's rage for chaos; biology, behavior, and the arts by Morse Peckham( Book )

31 editions published between 1965 and 1976 in English and held by 1,023 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Cultural criticism has been too obsessed with the rage for order to be able to grasp the import of Peckham's search for "some human activity, which serves to break up orientations, to weaken and frustrate the tyrannous drive to order, to prepare the individual to observe what the orientation tells him is irrelevant, but what may every be relevant." The techniques of poetry, music, painting, and architecture are carefully and lucidly analyzed to demonstrate how precisely those techniques violate the profound demand of the mind for order. This book is destined to force a sharp turn in critical cultural studies because it addresses the rage for chaos in traditional "high culture," not just in popular culture. - Publisher

The romantic virtuoso by Morse Peckham( Book )

7 editions published in 1995 in English and held by 497 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Morse Peckham's reputation as an expert on European Romanticism was founded on a distinguished academic career that spanned four decades. Completed shortly before his death in 1993, The Romantic Virtuoso, which includes the long-awaited Meditations on the Consequences of Romanticism, demonstrates Peckham's breath-taking interdisciplinary grasp, writing of individuals and their intellectual relationships as well as the historical context of the whole romantic movement. Equally at home with Beethoven and Rossini, Turner and Constable, Hegel and Schopenhauer, or Byron and Keats, he interweaves discussions of music, literature, philosophy, and the visual arts into a tapestry that presents a comprehensive reinterpretation of romanticism in terms of its cultural history. By tracing the ramifications of romanticism as well as its themes, Peckham reestablishes the historical roots of postmodernism and clarifies the continuity of concerns through the nineteenth century and up to the present
