1st Printing. 370 pages. Published in 2000. Book-length account on subject. A comprehensive overview of literary theory, it is now a standard reference, and is probably the single best account on its all-important subject. The First Hardcover Edition. Published simultaneously with the Softcover Edition in a small and limited print run by a University Press. Presents Patrick Colm Hogan's "Philosophical Approaches To The Study of Literature". "Reaching well beyond recent continental theorists, Hogan provides a lucid overview that carefully explicates and applies theories from Aristotle to Derrida and beyond while radically revising and extending the theory canon as well. Surveying 2, 500 years of philosophically-oriented literary theory, Patrick Hogan provides both explication and application of the philosophical underpinnings of literary study. Beginning with Greek, Arabic, and Sanskrit classics, Hogan explains the philosophical work that has been crucial to literary theory, moving through Kant and the German Idealists (Fichte, Schelling, Hegel) and post-Idealists (Nietzsche, Marx) to phenomenology, hermeneutics, and the recent European schools (Foucauldian historicism, structuralism, deconstruction). He also presents the Anglo-American tradition, from logical positivism to Wittgenstein and the Ordinary Language theorists, from Chomskyan linguistics to cognitive science and the philosophy of science. His straightforward, energetic style brings complex philosophical issues to bear on literary interpretation in readily accessible language" (Publisher's blurb). An absolute "must-have" title for Modern First and contemporary literature collectors. This is a University Press title and is now collectible. This is one of few copies of the First Hardcover Edition/First Printing still available online and has no flaws, a pristine beauty. A scarce copy thus. One of the most brilliant literary historians/theorists of our time. A flawless copy. (SEE ALSO OTHER PATRICK COLM HOGAN TITLE IN OUR CATALOG) ISBN 0813017645. Bookseller Inventory # 14253

About this title:

Synopsis:

Reaching well beyond recent continental theorists, Hogan provides a lucid overview that carefully explicates and applies theories from Aristotle to Derrida and beyond while radically revising and extending the theory canon as well. Contemporary literary study constantly invokes philosophical concepts and presupposes familiarity with key thinkers. At the same time it often betrays a limited understanding of the concepts and thinkers from which it claims authority. Surveying 2,500 years of philosophically oriented literary theory, Patrick Hogan provides students and teachers of literature with both explication and application of the philosophical underpinnings of literary study.

Beginning with Greek, Arabic, and Sanskrit classics, Hogan explains the philosophical work that has been crucial to literary theory, moving through Kant and the German Idealists (Fichte, Schelling, Hegel) and post-Idealists (Nietzsche, Marx), to phenomenology, hermeneutics, and the recent European schools (Foucaultian historicism, structuralism, deconstruction, and so on). He also presents the Anglo-American tradition, from logical positivism to Wittgenstein and the Ordinary Language theorists, from Chomsky an linguistics to cognitive science and philosophy of science.

Beyond the founding principles and general structure of these theories, Hogan illustrates their practical application and value with interpretive discussions of Othello and Agha Shahid Ali's "I Dream It Is Afternoon When I Return to Delhi." His straightforward, energetic style brings complex philosophical issues to bear on literary interpretation in readily accessible language.

Product Description: Surveying 2500 years of philosophically-oriented literary theory, Patrick Colm Hogan provides this explication and application of the philosophical underpinnings of literary study. It begins with Greek, Arabic and Sanskrit classics and works through to Chomskyan linguistics.
