  • Roman Jakobson

    1st Edition

    Edited by Margaret Thomas

    Although Roman Jakobson (1886–1982) styled himself a ‘Russian philologist’, that epithet covers only a fraction of his disciplinary breadth and international impact. In a long and prolific career, he wrote about theoretical and applied linguistics, phonology, prosody, poetics, semiotics,…

  • Modern Drama

  • Myth

    1st Edition

    By Robert Segal

    Myth is truly boundlessly interdisciplinary. There is no field of myth studies itself. Rather, many disciplines have contributed theories of myth. In addition to theories from anthropology and sociology, theories of myth have come mainly from psychology, folklore, philosophy, religious studies, and…

    Structuralism is a broad intellectual movement in the humanities and social sciences that came to prominence in the 1960s.

    Edited by Gregg Lambert, Victor E. Taylor

    Jean-François Lyotard's importance to modern philosophy cannot be overstated.

  • Romanticism

    1st Edition

    Edited by Michael O'Neill, Mark Sandy

    Romanticism is, and always has been, one of the most hotly contested terms in literary and cultural history. Many of the writers now described as Romantic refused to be defined by the word: 'it would be such bad taste', said Byron in 1820. Lovejoy spoke of a plurality of ‘romanticisms’,…
