The classical model : literature and knowledge in seventeenth-century France by Harriet Amy Stone( Book )

11 editions published between 1996 and 2019 in English and held by 518 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Literature has its own strategies for ordering information. In this elegant and insightful book about the formation of knowledge in seventeenth-century France, Harriet Stone asks what those strategies conveyed about the limits of science and about the cultural environment of the period. A propensity for reason and control pervaded literature as well as science, allowing classical literature to serve as a unique laboratory for exploring the model of representation developed by science. Literary texts have influenced the establishment and transformation of the paradigms grounding knowledge by drawing attention to meanings that the paradigms fail to name. Stone identifies not only the momentous achievement of the discovery of the scientific method but also the more subtle process of experimentation in literature through which ideas were continually tested and redefined. Her first and last chapters frame the literary texts within a discussion of Foucault's analysis of classical science. Classical writers began to encode their own world. Once they did, not only science but literature became an authority for mapping knowledge. Notwithstanding the classical period's efforts to affirm the unity of knowledge, Stone concludes that knowledge was never complete or certain. Literature's capacity to rework the model through which it assigns meanings proves essential to unfolding both the art and the science of representation

Tables of knowledge : Descartes in Vermeer's studio by Harriet Amy Stone( Book )

8 editions published in 2006 in English and held by 338 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Descartes believed that his analytic model applied to all fields of research and that all branches of science lead to truth. His many analogies with literature and art notwithstanding, Descartes offers an entry into knowledge that fails nevertheless to take into account how in the seventeenth century Dutch painters such as Vermeer similarly order a view of the world by concentrating on the properties of individual objects. Descartes's celebrated scientific method offers a protocol for conducting experiments; Harriet Stone argues that this method can also serve as a guide for classifying the findings obtained from experiments
Crowning glories : Netherlandish realism and the French imagination during the reign of Louis XIV by Harriet Amy Stone( )

11 editions published in 2019 in English and held by 324 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Crowning Glories integrates Louis XIV's propaganda campaigns, the transmission of Northern art into France, and the rise of empiricism in the eighteenth century--three historical touchstones--to examine what it would have meant for France's elite to experience the arts in France simultaneously with Netherlandish realist painting. In an expansive study of cultural life under the Sun King, Harriet Stone considers the monarchy's elaborate palace decors, the court's official records, and the classical theatre alongside Northern images of daily life in private homes, urban markets, and country fields. Stone argues that Netherlandish art assumes an unobtrusive yet, for the history of ideas, surprisingly dramatic role within the flourishing of the arts, both visual and textual, in France during Louis XIV's reign. Netherlandish realist art represented thinking about knowledge that challenged the monarchy's hold on the French imagination, and its efforts to impose the king's portrait as an ideal and proof of his authority. As objects appreciated for their aesthetic and market value, Northern realist paintings assumed an uncontroversial place in French royal and elite collections. Flemish and Dutch still lifes, genre paintings, and cityscapes, however, were not merely accoutrements of power, acquisitions made by those with influence and money. Crowning Glories reveals how the empirical orientation of Netherlandish realism exposed French court society to a radically different mode of thought, one that would gain full expression in the Encyclopédie of Diderot and d'Alembert."--

Evolution and conservation of tetraploid Euphrasia L. in Britain by Harriet Amy Stone( )

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

In the UK, nearly half of the plants short listed for high conservation priority in the UK Biodiversity Action Plan are found in taxonomically complex groups. It is thought that a shift from species- to process-based conservation strategies, aimed at conserving the processes that generate diversity as opposed to simply the end product of these dynamic interactions, may benefit these groups. One group for which this strategy has been proposed is tetraploid Euphrasia. The underlying taxonomic complexity in this group is hypothesised to arise via breeding systems, hybridisation and local ecotypic adaptation. The goal of this thesis is to use morphological, ecological and molecular marker data to examine taxon limits and evolutionary processes in order to further understand the mechanisms involved in maintaining species boundaries and generating taxonomic complexity in tetraploid Euphrasia. This will not only make conservation in this group more effective, but will also provide a broader insight into some of the processes involved in plant speciation. A detailed study of two widespread, small flowered, tetraploid taxa, E. micrantha and E. scottica, showed that offspring are almost exclusively the result of self-fertilization. These taxa maintain distinctive morphologies, habitat preferences and chloroplast DNA variation throughout their range, suggesting that they represent coherent lineages within Scotland. As in other widespread inbreeding species, there are high levels of microsatellite differentiation among different populations of the same species. In northwest Scotland three complex populations of tetraploid Euphrasia were identified which comprised an array of many different morphs (recognised species, and putative hybrids). Analysis of chloroplast and microsatellite markers suggests that these different morphs represent distinct genetic groups. Within each site there is evidence both for habitat heterogeneity, and for association of morphs with this habitat variation. Intermediate morphs were not simple F1 hybrids, but are likely to have originated via hybridisation and subsequent selfing, surviving as independent recombinant lines, perhaps specialised for habitat types different from that of their progenitor parents. These stable morphs of hybrid origin could represent groups with adaptive potential that may result in the origin of a novel Euphrasia species. It will be important to further examine the processes involved in generating novel diversity in Euphrasia. For the time being, these complex populations must be recognised as sites requiring special protection within the context of a process-based conservation strategy
Ouvrages miscellanées et théories de la connaissance à la renaissance by Tom Conley( )

1 edition published in 2017 in French and held by 3 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

La pratique des ouvrages miscellanées ou de « mélanges » n'est pas propre à la Renaissance, mais elle se développe à cette époque en même temps que naît la philologie et qu'apparaissent, avec les nouvelles interprétations des textes canoniques - bibliques, philosophiques, théologiques, politiques, etc. - comme avec la découverte du nouveau monde, de nouvelles constructions de sens et de connaissance, la réorganisation des savoirs. Les miscellanées ressortissent ainsi à des théories de la connaissance. Le développement de l'imprimerie joue un grand rôle dans la diffusion de ce type d'ouvrages. Sans prétendre à l'exhaustivité sur cette question, la journée d'étude de l'École des chartes a eu pour finalité de montrer quelques enjeux d'ouvrages miscellanées majeurs de la Renaissance
Héros ou personnages? : le personnel du théâtre de Pierre Corneille by Myriam Dufour-Maître( )

1 edition published in 2018 in French and held by 3 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Le mythe du « héros cornélien » a longtemps dominé la scène critique, avant de laisser place à une approche plus dramaturgique des personnages de Corneille, au pluriel, et pièce par pièce. Au passage, la notion même d'héroïsme cornélien s'est trouvée légitimement interrogée. Le héros doit-il se dissoudre alors dans le personnage, fût-il principal, voire dans le type, l'emploi, le rôle ou la place ? Corneille le distingue pourtant, ce « premier acteur » pour lequel le spectateur a de « l'amitié » ; ou plutôt il les distingue, héros et héroïne, tant le théâtre de Corneille est une « dramaturgie du couple ». Si l'éclat de l'héroïsme demeure manifeste, très concrètement construit - ou mis en question - sur la scène par le jeu des regards, des discours et des voix, son contenu demeure problématique : volonté, vertu, hauteur, point d'exception ? Pour quelles valeurs, et au prix de quels risques choisirons-nous encore aujourd'hui de parler de héros, ou de personnages de Corneille ?
On the inconstancy of witches : Pierre de Lancre's Tableau de l'inconstance des mauvais anges et demons (1612) by Pierre de Lancre( Book )
