📒Open Form And The Shape Of Ideas ✍ Oscar Kenshur
✏Open Form and the Shape of Ideas Book Summary : This study examines some of the ways in which discontinuous literary forms of the seventeenth and eighteenth centuries serve as representations of philosophical ideas. The author provides a critique of Joseph Frank's "Spatial Form" and Umberto Eco's "Open Work" and then offers his own account of the theory of discontinuous form.
📒Routledge Encyclopedia Of Narrative Theory ✍ David HERMAN
✏Routledge Encyclopedia of Narrative Theory Book Summary : The past several decades have seen an explosion of interest in narrative, with this multifaceted object of inquiry becoming a central concern in a wide range of disciplinary fields and research contexts. As accounts of what happened to particular people in particular circumstances and with specific consequences, stories have come to be viewed as a basic human strategy for coming to terms with time, process, and change. However, the very predominance of narrative as a focus of interest across multiple disciplines makes it imperative for scholars, teachers, and students to have access to a comprehensive reference resource.

✏The Films of Stan Brakhage in the American Tradition of Ezra Pound Gertrude Stein and Charles Olson Book Summary : Since the late 1950s Stan Brakhage has been in the forefront of independent filmmaking. His body of work — some seventy hours — is one of the largest of any filmmaker in the history of cinema, and one of the most diverse. Probably the most widely quoted experimental filmmaker in history, his films typify the independent cinema. Until now, despite well-deserved acclaim, there has been no comprehensive study of Brakhage’s oeuvre. The Films of Stan Brakhage in the American Tradition fills this void. R. Bruce Elder delineates the aesthetic parallels between Brakhage’s films and a broad spectrum of American art from the 1920s through the 1960s. This book is certain to stir the passions of those interested in artistic critique and interpretation in its broadest terms.

📒Marxism And The Open Mind ✍ John Lewis
✏Marxism and the Open Mind Book Summary : In Marxism and the Open Mind, John Lewis seeks to explain Marxism as a system of thought. In doing so, he addresses the studied neglect or grotesque misrepresentation that he feels characterizes Western attitudes toward Marxism. Lewis also aims to stimulate what he believes to be a long overdue re-evaluation of Marxism in the light of what was contemporary thought in 1957, the year of the book’s original publication and the height of the Cold War era. The essays include chapters on human rights and a discussion on Marxism and liberty. Marxist ethics, a much-neglected theme, is the subject of an essay that deals with some of the most deeply felt criticisms of Marxism in the 1950s. The ethical aspects of Marxism are examined once again in a contribution to the debate on Marxism and religion. The volume concludes with essays on Berdyaev and Sartre, which strike a note on the Marxist estimation of these thinkers, and with an essay on Marxist humanism. The essays cover a wide field of thought, uniting a close and sympathetic study of Marxism with a critical judgment rooted in academic training at three universities and experience in the Christian ministry.
📒The Open Society And Its Enemies ✍ Karl Raimund Popper
✏The Open Society and Its Enemies Book Summary : Written in political exile during the Second World War, The Open Society and its Enemies prophesied the collapse of communism in Eastern Europe and exposed the fatal flaws of socially engineered political systems.
📒Dilemmas Of Enlightenment ✍ Oscar Kenshur
✏Dilemmas of Enlightenment Book Summary : "A subtly telling blow to the old-timey distinction between philosophy and literature, a distinction that still persists in practice, despite many overly ideological campaigns to revise it. He, too, talks a lot about theory and ideology, but he shows in practice the wonderful complexities of the interplay of rhetoric and philosophy. Furthermore, he shows how this interplay helped to fabricate the many textures of eighteenth-century life. Kenshur's is the first comprehensive 'cultural history' that actually takes pleasure in the rich, interdisciplinary exchanges of the era."--Kevin L. Cope, author of "Criteria of Certainty" "This is an important book. It is provocative at many turns regarding the individual texts studied, and sees them in not simply untraditional but counter-traditional, yet quite well-substantiated, ways. The book may be still more important on account of its strong, reasoned, poised challenge to theoretical orthodoxies ranging from Foucault to New Historicism to Stanley Fish's idea of interpretive communities."--Frederick M. Keener, author of "The Chain of Becoming"
📒Open Form And The Feminine Imagination ✍ Stephen-Paul Martin
✏Open Form and the Feminine Imagination Book Summary : Martin begins with predictions that western civilization is now undergoing a paradigm shift. Older forms of rationality are patriarchal; artistic forms are closed and fulfill norms of logic and causality. The emerging forms of thought are feminine, open, and incomplete-requiring nurture and creative participation of the reader for meaning to exist.
✏Open Subjects English Renaissance Republicans Modern Selfhoods and the Virtue of Vulnerability Book Summary : Studies of the republican legacy have proliferated in recent years, always to argue for a polity that cultivates the virtues, protections, and entitlements which foster the self's ability to simulate an invulnerable existence. James Kuzner's original new study of writing by Spenser, Shakespeare, Marvell and Milton is the first to present a genealogy for the modern self in which its republican origins can be understood far more radically. In doing so, the study is also the first to draw radical and republican thought into sustained conversation, and to locate a republic for which vulnerability is, unexpectedly, as much what community has to offer as it is what community guards against. At a time when the drive to safeguard citizens has gathered enough momentum to justify almost any state action, Open Subjects questions whether vulnerability is the evil we so often believe it to be.
