Rabelais and his world by M. M Bakhtin( Book )

Problems of Dostoevsky's poetics by M. M Bakhtin( Book )

250 editions published between 1921 and 2016 in 11 languages and held by 2,658 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This book is the ideal introduction to the thought of Mikhail Bakhtin. Bakhtin is becoming established as one of the giants of 20th century literary criticsm, despite his work being unknown in the West until the 1970's. This book is less about Dostoyevsky per se, rather a profound meditation on how Dostoyevsky's art exemplifies the central concern of Bakhtin, the concept of 'dialogism'. This idea defies a simple definition; the book in exploring manifold aspects of it, itself becomes truly dialogic. If you value Dostoyevsky as an artist, require an antidote to the chill winds of modern 'Theory', or simply appreciate genius at work, catch up with one of the best kept secrets in literature
Speech genres and other late essays by M. M Bakhtin( Book )

145 editions published between 1978 and 2012 in 8 languages and held by 1,558 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Speech Genres and Other Late Essays presents six short works from Bakhtin's Esthetics of Creative Discourse, published in Moscow in 1979. This is the last of Bakhtin's extant manuscripts published in the Soviet Union. All but one of these essays (the one on the Bildungsroman) were written in Bakhtin's later years and thus they bear the stamp of a thinker who has accumulated a huge storehouse of factual material, to which he has devoted a lifetime of analysis, reflection, and reconsideration."--Page 4 of cover
The dialogic imagination : four essays by M. M Bakhtin( Book )

92 editions published between 1981 and 2014 in English and Undetermined and held by 1,537 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

These essays reveal Mikhail Bakhtin (1895-1975)--known in the West largely through his studies of Rabelais and Dostoevsky--as a philosopher of language, a cultural historian, and a major theoretician of the novel. The Dialogic Imaginationpresents, in superb English translation, four selections fromVoprosy literatury i estetiki(Problems of literature and esthetics), published in Moscow in 1975. The volume also contains a lengthy introduction to Bakhtin and his thought and a glossary of terminology. Bakhtin uses the category "novel" in a highly idiosyncratic way, claiming for it vastly larger territory than has been traditionally accepted. For him, the novel is not so much a genre as it is a force, "novelness," which he discusses in "From the Prehistory of Novelistic Discourse." Two essays, "Epic and Novel" and "Forms of Time and of the Chronotope in the Novel," deal with literary history in Bakhtin's own unorthodox way. In the final essay, he discusses literature and language in general, which he sees as stratified, constantly changing systems of subgenres, dialects, and fragmented "languages" in battle with one another
The formal method in literary scholarship : a critical introduction to sociological poetics by P. N Medvedev( Book )

80 editions published between 1976 and 2008 in 9 languages and held by 1,227 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Manifeste du formalisme et du matérialisme russe développé par le cercle de Bakhtine, comme fondement de ce qui se présente comme une poétique, une linguistique ou une stylistique sociologique de l'art verbal, par opposition aux arts plastiques qui, à la même époque (1928), retiennent l'attention des historiens de l'art germaniques, premiers interlocuteurs de Bakhtine--[Memento]

Esthétique et théorie du roman by M. M Bakhtin( Book )

51 editions published between 1975 and 2013 in French and held by 487 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Ce livre vient compléter la publication des oeuvres du théoricien russe Mikhail Bakhtine. Paru à Moscou en 1975, il constitue le panneau central d'un triptyque dont le ##Dostoïevski## (écrit en 1929, réédité en 1963) et le ##Rabelais## (paru en 1965 mais terminé en 1941) sont déjà connus du public français. Il s'agit ici d'articles dont le premier est de 1924, mais tous les autres de la période 1930-1940. Ce livre permet d'ajouter une dimension théorique à la recherche importante de Bakhtine: il cherche à dépasser le formalisme et à réintégrer dans l'analyse l'étude des idées. Il cherche à rattacher la naissance du roman d'une prise de conscience du langage, d'une remise en question de la langue unique (par exemple le latin vis-à-vis du français au Moyen Age français). Ouvrage capital dans la critique contemporaine, qui fait de Bakhtine un grand "précurseur de la sémiotique contemporaine"
Toward a philosophy of the act by M. M Bakhtin( Book )

19 editions published between 1993 and 1999 in English and Spanish and held by 431 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Rescued in 1972 from a storeroom in which rats and seeping water had severely damaged the fifty-year-old manuscript, this text is the earliest major work (1919-1921) of the great Russian philosopher Mikhail Bakhtin. Toward a Philosophy of the Act contains the first occurrences of themes that occupied Bakhtin throughout his long career. The topics of authoring, responsibility, self and other, the moral significance of "outsideness," participatory thinking, the implications for the individual subject of having "no-alibi in existence," the relation between the world as experienced in actions and the world as represented in discourse - all are broached here in the white heat of discovery. This is the "heart of the heart" of Bakhtin, the center of the dialogue between being and language, the world and mind, "the given" and "the created" that forms the core of Bakhtin's distinctive dialogism. A special feature of this work is Bakhtin's struggle with the philosophy of Immanuel Kant. Put very simply, this text is an attempt to go beyond Kant's formulation of the ethical imperative. Bakhtin raises issues of cultural relativity, the situatedness of knowledge, and the relation of literary theory to moral philosophy that remain as challenging as when they were first written. Toward a Philosophy of the Act will be important reading for scholars across the humanities as they grapple with the increasingly vexed relationship between aesthetics and ethics

Marxism and the philosophy of language by V. N Voloshinov( Book )

66 editions published between 1972 and 2010 in 10 languages and held by 404 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Au milieu du bouillonnement intellectuel des années vingt en U.R.S.S., Mikhaïl Bakhtine, philosophe et critique littéraire, sʹinterroge sur les rapports entre lʹidéologie, le langage et le psychisme. Refusant la dichotomie saussurienne langue / parole, qui vide la pratique linguistique de sa substance, il affirme la nature sociale du signe et pose les fondements dʹune linguistique de lʹénonciation en tant que manifestation sociale et non individuelle. Au signe figé, réduit à nʹêtre quʹun "signal", il oppose le signe mouvant, changeant, arène où se jouent les conflits sociaux. Publié en 1929 à Leningrad sous le nom de Volochinov, élève de Bakhtine, cet ouvrage paraît pour la première fois sous le nom de son véritable auteur. -- Back cover
Freudianism : a Marxist critique by V. N Voloshinov( Book )

43 editions published between 1927 and 2004 in 4 languages and held by 223 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Freudianism is a major icon in the history of ideas, independently rich and suggestive today both for psychoanalysis and for theories of language. It offers critical insights whose recognition demands a change in the manner in which the fundamental principles of both psychoanalysis and linguistic theory are understood. Volosinov went to the root of Freud's theory adn method, arguing that what is for him the central concept of psychoanalysis, "the unconscious," was a fiction. He argued that the phenomena that were taken by Freud as evidence for "the unconscious" constituted instead an aspect of "the conscious," albeit one with a person's "official conscious." For Volosinov, "the conscious" was a monologue, a use of language, "inner speech" as he called it. As such, the conscious participated in all of the properties of language, particularly, for Volosinov, its social essence. This type of argumentation stood behind Volosinov's charge that Freudianism presented humans in an inherently false, individualistic, asocial, and ahistorical setting.

Estetica e romanzo by M. M Bakhtin( Book )

26 editions published between 1979 and 2013 in Italian and held by 111 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Questa è la raccolta dei lavori teorici di Michail Bachtin, la cui opera si forma al confine tra filosofia, storia e letteratura e costituisce il contributo piú originale e fecondo che, dopo i <<formalisti>>, la cultura russa abbia dato alla <<scienza della letteratura>>. In questi saggi, scritti per lo piú negli anni Venti e Trenta e pubblicati postumi, Bachtin elabora una teoria del romanzo arditamente originale e la verifica su tutto l'arco di sviluppo di questo genere letterario, dal romanzo greco e latino alla biografia antica, dal romanzo di cavalleria al mondo di Rabelais, fino alle linee centrali di sviluppo del romanzo moderno. Il continuo scambio di energie critiche fra teoria e storia genera una messe straordinaria di interpretazioni, proposte, intuizioni, sorrette da una metodologia rigorosa e animate da un pensiero innovatore. Oltre che come una teoria del romanzo il libro può essere letto come espressione di una filosofia <<dialogica>> profondamente libera e sovvertitrice. Non ultima sorpresa è la figura stessa dell'autore quale si disegna attraverso tutto il suo lavoro, che per quasi mezzo secolo fu svolto con straordinaria tenacia, nell'oscurità e spesso nell'ostilità: la figura esemplare di uno spirito indipendente e creativo, le cui idee oggi sono considerate come precorritrici della semiotica, ma di cui forse sarebbe meglio rispettare la singolare originalità fuori da ogni incasellamento classificatorio, nell'orizzonte delle moderne <<scienze della cultura>>
