Solitudes
Solitudes (July 1995)
From Rimbaud to Heidegger
Marc Froment-Meurice - Author

The author reads Rimbaud, Mallarme. Holderlin, and Trakl in relation to philosophy, and in particular to Heidegger.


"Not only has Froment-Meurice tackled the most demanding of poetic questions--what is modernity?--but he has not shied away from the truth that this is also and perhaps above all a political question, understanding this term in the broad sense. His work will be of importance to more than one constituency; scholars in ...(Read More)
 
 
The Site of Our Lives
The Site of Our Lives (July 1995)
The Self and the Subject from Emerson to Foucault
James S. Hans - Author

This book addresses the question of human uniqueness at a time when academic discourse has all but abandoned its long-held commitment to the value of individuality. Through an appraisal of the works of Emerson, Nietzsche, Heidegger, Derrida, and Foucault, the author establishes the ways in which the current critique of the self has grossly distorted the nature of the debate by reducing it to a simple choice between essential or constructed selves. ...(Read More)

Spirits Hovering Over the Ashes (May 1995)
Legacies of Postmodern Theory
H. L. Hix - Author

This book explores the consequences of postmodern theory and answers the question, "What did postmodern theory begin?"
In a series of topical explorations structured like a sonata, H. L. Hix identifies the consequences of postmodern theory through such issues as grief, freedom, beauty, obscenity, love, and sex to its axiological consequences. A basic motif, postmodernism's distribution of meaning over space rather than time, recurs throug...(Read More)

Essays in Cultural Studies and Comparative Literature
E. San Juan Jr. - Author

This book offers a radical, "Third World" approach to current debates on canon revision, multiculturalism, Eurocentrism, and reforms in education and culture.
"This is a brilliant and unique intervention into a host of major and knotty contemporary debates in literary criticism. In particular, it is refreshing and inspiring to see the uncompromising anti-racism and anti-Eurocentrism of these studies combined with a sophisticated outlook ...(Read More)

Ecofeminist Critiques
Patrick D. Murphy - Author

Postmodern theory at its best--a call for an ecofeminist dialogical method of reading literature and nature.
The book first establishes a theoretical framework for conceptualizing environmental analysis. It then develops a conception of environmental literature with an emphasis on works by women, arguing for the need to reconceptualize woman/nature and nature/culture associations, and critiquing the problems of male poetic sex-typing of t...(Read More)

Nineteenth-Century Philosophy and Contemporary Theory
Tilottama Rajan - Editor
David L. Clark - Editor

This is a study of the relationship between postmodernism and post-enlightenment German thought reading the contemporary theoretical scene through its nineteenth-century counterpart and examining the intersections.
Focusing on nineteenth-century philosophers from Schelling and Hegel to Nietzsche, and on contemporary theorists from Derrida to Kristeva and Lyotard, the essays in this book suggest that the two areas are most similar at the p...(Read More)

The Redemption of Tragedy
The Redemption of Tragedy (January 1995)
The Literary Vision of Simone Weil
Katherine T. Brueck - Author

Simone Weil's supernaturalist interpretations of tragedy challenge not only the philosophical skepticism but also the religious rationalism characteristic of the modern age.

"Brueck argues that Weil allows us to see in tragedies a 'heartrending but purposeful world order' at work; mystery, not absurdity, suprarational good rather than chaos or irrationality. This book contributed to my understanding and reading of tragedy." -- Christine Ann ...(Read More)
 
 
Hauntings
Hauntings (December 1994)
Popular Film and American Culture 1990-1992
Joseph Natoli - Author

This book is about the way that popular film brings to a "sayable" level that which haunts us in the media headlines.
"This book is so very topical--in the best of all possible senses. It uses contemporary films to comment upon broader social issues: violence, homophobia, sexual abuse, television, capitalism, class, marriage, ecology, democracy, greed, subcultures, and the list could go on. The fears of America--the hauntings by the Ro...(Read More)
