Description
 
Stuart Peterfreund. When literary theory applies its methods of analysis to science, it reveals that such “scientific” concepts as universality, validity, rationality, & truth are rarely the absolutes they seem to be. This volume considers specific issues in literary-scientific relations, addressing each issue by proposing a methodology suitable for the specific problems raised. Chapters: the devils of positivism; literature & medicine: why should the physician read . . . or write?; science, discourse, & literature: the role/rule of metaphor in science; contemporary cosmology & narrative theory; & Blake, Priestley, & the “Gnostic Moment”.
