Fiction, Philosophy and Literary Theory
Full Product Description
Thus Norris devotes some penetrating commentary to topics such as modal or ‘possible-worlds’ logic as it bears upon issues in narrative theory; the ‘two cultures’ (science versus literature) controversy; the different ways in which literary theory has alternately embraced and rejected the appeal to ‘scientific’ modes of analysis; and some possible reasons for Wittgenstein’s well-known aversion to Shakespeare. He also suggests a novel approach to the free-will/determinism issue by way of debates about the nature of language and the scope it affords for expressive creativity despite – or owing to – the limits imposed by various structural constraints.
Altogether this important new book provides a welcome overview of the author’s current thinking and an equally welcome enlargement of horizons in contrast to the narrowly specialised character of much present-day academic discourse.
