The science of literature : essays on an incalculable difference by Helmut Müller-Sievers( )

9 editions published in 2015 in English and held by 1,108 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Do literary texts provide distinctive access to the history of science? Is the study of literature based on scientific procedures? Is there a connection between scientific processes and literary forms? The essays in this collection show how literary and scientific texts from the late 18th to the late 19th centuries revolve around these questions. What emerges is a picture of the mutual dependence and the incalculable difference between literature and science in the period of their modern formation. --

The Ends of rhetoric : history, theory, practice( Book )

13 editions published between 1990 and 1997 in English and held by 594 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The discipline of rhetoric - adapted through a wide range of reformulations to the specific requirements of Greek, Roman, Medieval, and Renaissance societies - dominated European education and discourse, whether public or private, for more than two thousand years. The end of classical rhetoric's domination was brought about by a combination of social and cultural transformations that occured between the seventeenth and nineteenth centuries. Concurrent with the 'theory boom' of recent decades, rhetoric has appeared as a center of discussion in the humanities and social sciences. Rhetorical inquiry, as it is thought and practiced today, occurs in an interdisciplinary matrix that touches on philosophy, linguistics, communication studies, psychoanalysis, cognitive science, sociology, anthropology, and political theory. Rhetoric is now an area of study without accepted certainties, a territory not yet parceled into topical subdivisions, a mode of discourse that adheres to no fixed protocols. It is a noisy field in the cybernetic sense of the term: a fertile ground for creative innovation

Chronotypes : the construction of time( Book )

8 editions published between 1991 and 1999 in English and held by 447 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Time belongs to a handful of categories (like form, symbol, cause) that are genuinely transdisciplinary. Time touches every dimension of our being, every object of our attention--including attention itself. It therefore can belong to no single field of study. Of course, this universalist view of time is not itself universal but rather is a product of the modern age, an age that conceived of itself as the "new" time. Time has thus gained new importance as a theme of general research with the "postmodern turn" now manifest in many areas of intellectual endeavor, especially in the humanities and social sciences." ""Chronotypes" are models or patterns through which time assumes practical or conceptual significance. Time is not given but (as the subtitle indicates) fabricated in an ongoing process. Chronotypes are themselves temporal and plural, constantly being made and remade at multiple individual, social, and cultural levels. They interact, they change over time, and they have histories, whose construal is itself an act of temporal construction." "This book--an interdisciplinary collaboration of philosophers, historians, literary critics, and anthropologists--examines the ways individuals, societies, and cultures make sense of time by constructing it in diverse patterns. Book jacket."--BOOK JACKET
Faust I & II by Johann Wolfgang von Goethe( )

4 editions published in 2014 in English and held by 432 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Faust is Goethe's most complex and profound work. To tell the dramatic and tragic story of one man's pact with the Devil in exchange for knowledge and power, Goethe drew from a variety of cultural and historical material, and a wealth of poetic and theatrical traditions. What results illustrates Goethe's own moral and artistic development, and a symbolic, cautionary tale of Western humanity striving for progress
