Atmosphere, mood, Stimmung : on a hidden potential of literature by Hans Ulrich Gumbrecht( )

14 editions published in 2012 in English and held by 1,857 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"What are the various atmospheres or moods that the reading of literary works can trigger? Hans Ulrich Gumbrecht has long argued that the function of literature is not so much to describe, or to re-present, as to make present. Here, he goes one step further, exploring the substance and reality of language as a material component of the world--impalpable hints, tones, and airs that, as much as they may be elusive, are no less matters of actual fact ... Conveying personal encounters with poetry, song, painting, and the novel, this book thus gestures toward the intangible and in the process, constitutes a bold defense of the subjective experience of the arts."--Page 4 of cover
The truth of the technological world : essays on the genealogy of presence by Friedrich A Kittler( )

23 editions published between 2013 and 2018 in 4 languages and held by 1,399 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Wenige deutsche Geisteswissenschaftler der letzten 50 Jahre haben die kulturelle Situation unserer Zeit, einschließlich ihrer akademischen Strukturen, so nachhaltig geprägt wie Friedrich Kittler. Seine Schriften trugen entscheidend dazu bei, dass Radios, Grammophone und Computer nicht nur zu einer kulturellen Faszination, sondern auch zum Gegenstand der philosophischen Reflexion geworden sind. Der Band versammelt Abhandlungen Kittlers aus 40 Jahren und zeigt das enorme Spektrum, die Intensität und die singuläre Kreativität seines Denkens
Our broad present : time and contemporary culture by Hans Ulrich Gumbrecht( )

9 editions published in 2014 in English and held by 1,124 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Considering a range of present-day phenomena, from the immediacy effects of literature to the impact of hypercommunication, globalization, and sports, Hans Ulrich Gumbrecht notes an important shift in our relationship to history and the passage of time. Although we continue to use concepts inherited from a?historicist" viewpoint, a notion of time articulated in the eighteenth and nineteenth centuries, the actual construction of time in which we live in today, which shapes our perceptions, experiences, and actions, is no longer historicist. Without fully realizing it, we now inhabit a new

Making sense in life and literature by Hans Ulrich Gumbrecht( )

15 editions published between 1991 and 1992 in English and held by 1,013 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"The translation of these essays by Gumbrecht on literary theory and history marks the appearance in English of one of Europe's most learned, productive, and inventive scholars. Their range is extraordinary. They show that Gumbrecht is not only a sophisticated theorist and historian of literature, but a master practitioner of cultural studies."--Hayden White, University of California, Santa Cruz
In praise of athletic beauty by Hans Ulrich Gumbrecht( Book )

25 editions published between 2005 and 2016 in 6 languages and held by 726 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"By the hundreds of millions we show up, stand in line, turn on, and tune in to watch, mesmerized, as athletes perform. And yet this experience, so widely craved and intensely felt, we commonly dismiss as "only a game." The vicarious thrill, anxiety release, competitive spirit: in place of these traditional answers to the mystery of sports' allure, Gumbrecht proposes a more powerful and provocative alternative. The fascination with watching sports, he argues, is probably the most popular and potent contemporary form of aesthetic experience. In exploring this idea, Gumbrecht develops a reflection on the pleasures of sports spectatorship and the nature of athletic beauty."--Jacket

Mapping Benjamin : the work of art in the digital age( Book )

13 editions published in 2003 in English and held by 429 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Since its publication in 1936, Walter Benjamin's "Artwork" essay has become a canonical text about the status and place of the fine arts in modern mass culture. Benjamin was especially concerned with the ability of new technologies--notably film, sound recording, and photography--to reproduce works of art in great number. Benjamin could not have foreseen the explosion of imagery and media that has occurred during the past fifty years. Does Benjamin's famous essay still speak to this new situation? That is the question posed by the editors of this book to a wide range of leading scholars and thinkers across a spectrum of disciplines in the humanities. The essays gathered here do not hazard a univocal reply to that question; rather they offer a rich, wide-ranging critique of Benjamin's position that refracts and reflects contemporary thinking about the ethical, political, and aesthetic implications of life in the digital age."--Publisher

The powers of philology : dynamics of textual scholarship by Hans Ulrich Gumbrecht( Book )

12 editions published between 2002 and 2003 in English and held by 254 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Philology - the discovery, editing, and presentation of historical texts - was once a firmly established discipline that formed the core study for students across a wide range of linguistic and literary fields. Although philology departments are steadily disappearing from contemporary educational establishments, in this book Hans Ulrich Gumbrecht demonstrates that the problems, standards, and methods of philology remain as vital as ever."--Jacket
Streams of cultural capital : transnational cultural studies( Book )

11 editions published between 1993 and 1997 in English and Undetermined and held by 214 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This anthology examines the questions arising from the transpositions and recontextualizations of cultural objects across and between national borders: How is culture recognized, reconfigured, disseminated, appropriated, and practiced? How is cultural hegemony refused, diffused, absorbed, reproduced, and reconfigured, given the particularities of its interpolation into multiple contexts and under different pretexts by various agents? How is the materiality of culture correlated (or not) with the materiality of the economic? And how are these questions complicated by the fact that radically new technologies and modes of production have made the mass (and often illegal) (re) production and circulation of cultural objects less and less controllable and predictable and their points of origin more and more difficult to discern? Transnational movements of cultural objects challenge the notion of a simply produced, disseminated, absorbed, and practiced universal culture that is often understood solely as an amplified single-nation model. Instead, the essays in this book focus on uneven flows of culture, multidirectional currents of cultural objects, the relative value of these objects determined by the specificity of each transaction, and, perhaps most important, the indeterminate, syncretic nature of culture as capital even as its investment evinces the desire for a particular positionality
