Science and Literature

THIS SERIES IS COMPLETE

Original Series Description
This series tracks connections between science and literature from Aristotle to Bacon to Wordsworth to Pynchon, and the ways that their different discourses provide alternative but related expressions of a culture's values, assumptions, and intellectual frameworks. It considers the ways in which science and theories of science might affect literary theory and criticism; examines scientific discourse with the tools of literary criticism; interprets the cultural power of science; and studies the work and significance of particular scientists and writers.
