9780415509596: The Routledge Companion to Literature and Science (Routledge Literature Companions)

With forty-four newly commissioned articles from an international cast of leading scholars, The Routledge Companion to Literature and Science traces the network of connections among literature, science, technology, mathematics, and medicine. Divided into three main sections, this volume:

  • links diverse literatures to scientific disciplines from Artificial Intelligence to Thermodynamics
  • surveys current theoretical and disciplinary approaches from Animal Studies to Semiotics
  • traces the history and culture of literature and science from Greece and Rome to Postmodernism.

Ranging from classical origins and modern revolutions to current developments in cultural science studies and the posthumanities, this indispensible volume offers a comprehensive resource for undergraduates, postgraduates, and researchers.

With authoritative, accessible, and succinct treatments of the sciences in their literary dimensions and cultural frameworks, here is the essential guide to this vibrant area of study.

About the Author:

Bruce Clarke is the Paul Whitfield Horn Professor of Literature and Science at Texas Tech University, and a past president of the Society for Literature, Science, and the Arts.

 

Manuela Rossini is Scientific Coordinator of the Graduate School of the Humanities at the University of Bern, and Executive Director of the Society for Literature, Science, and the Arts Europe.

Review:

'This extraordinarily wide-ranging and well-organised series of essays will be invaluable to students and scholars alike who are interested in how scientific thinking and literary texts engage with fundamental ideas in common.' - Dame Gillian Beer, Professor of English Literature Emeritus at the University of Cambridge, UK

'Because the writing throughout is accessible to nonspecialists in both literature and science, the volume fulfills the editors' aim of offering a much-needed, comprehensive grounding in the field. Recommended.' - Choice

'A sustained attempt to resist demarcating disciplinary boundaries or limit available methodologies.' - British Society for Literature and Science
