Wilde writings : contextual conditions( Book )

7 editions published between 2002 and 2009 in English and held by 269 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The collection provides fresh insights into critical debates about Wilde and effeminacy, masochism, and Christian theology, and also draws attention to significant problems in the textual editing of his writings, his debt to the 'aesthetic' fiction of the novelist Ouida, and the popularity of his drama in twentieth-century China."--Jacket

Novak have brought together many of the world's experts on Dryden, and their essays reflect a range of new, distinctly twenty-first-century views of him. The book is divided into two sections. The first explores Dryden's role as a public poet who presented himself as the voice of the restored Stuart court. The second part considers Dryden's relationship to the theatrical arts and music and his connection to the literary past."--Jacket

Thinking impossibilities : the intellectual legacy of Amos Funkenstein( Book )

4 editions published in 2008 in English and held by 139 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Intellectuals rarely make a significant impact on one field of scholarship let alone several, yet Amos Funkenstein (1937-1995) displayed an intellectual range that encompassed several disciplines and broke new ground across seemingly impenetrable scholarly boundaries. The philosophy of history from antiquity to modernity, medieval and early modern history of science, medieval scholasticism, Jewish history in all of its periods - these are all areas in which he made lasting contributions. Thinking Impossibilities brings together Funkenstein's colleagues, friends, and former students to engage with important aspects of his intellectual legacy.Funkenstein's diverse interests were bound together by common figures of thought, especially the search for pre-modern intellectual groundings of modern ideas and how the seeming 'impossibilities' of one historical moment might become positive resources of conceptual construction and development in another. The essays in this volume take up major themes in European intellectual history, and examine them through the unique lens that Funkenstein himself employed during his career. Of particular interest are ways in which topics of Jewish history are engaged with the larger field of the history of ideas in the West. Richly interdisciplinary and full of fresh insights, Thinking Impossibilities is a fitting tribute to an important twentieth-century scholar

Godwinian Moments is a valuable resource for understanding the intellectual and societal shifts of the long nineteenth-century."--Pub. desc

Structures of feeling in seventeenth-century cultural expression by University of California( Book )

3 editions published between 2012 and 2013 in English and held by 121 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The age of projects( Book )

5 editions published in 2008 in English and held by 110 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"The Projecting Age" was a term the English novelist Daniel Defoe used to describe the end of the seventeenth century. This term could just as easily be used, however, to describe the period known as the "Long Eighteenth Century" (1660-1789). The Age of Projects uses the notion of a project as a key to understanding the massive social, cultural, political, literary, and scientific transitions that occurred in Europe during this time. The contributors to this collection examine fraudulent, grandiose, altruistic, and idealistic projects that reveal the period's radical breaks from the past and its preoccupation with the future. Examining topics as diverse as Jonathan Swift's satire on the possibility of a computer, to Gottfried Leibniz's effort to build one, and Edmund Burke's prediction that the project of democratic governance would be taken over by greedy adventurers, this volume provides significant insight into the period's ambitions for an improved future. A well-balanced collection by leading scholars from diverse disciplines, The Age of Projects is a significant contribution to intellectual history, literary history, and the history of science
Space and self in early modern European cultures by David Warren Sabean( Book )

2 editions published in 2012 in English and held by 110 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

As Space and Self shows, there have at all times been multiple paths and alternative possibilities for forming identities, marking personhood, and experiencing life as a concrete, singular individual. Positioning self and space as specific and evolving constructs, a diverse group of contributors explore how persons become embodied in particular places or inscribed in concrete space. Space and Self thus sets the terms for current discussion of these topics and provides new approaches to studying their cultural specificity."--Pub. desc
