Book Description

June 10, 2010 0801894883 978-0801894886

Drawing on the explosion of academic and public interest in cognitive science in the past two decades, this volume features articles that combine literary and cultural analysis with insights from neuroscience, cognitive evolutionary psychology and anthropology, and cognitive linguistics. Lisa Zunshine’s introduction provides a broad overview of the field. The essays that follow are organized into four parts that explore developments in literary universals, cognitive historicism, cognitive narratology, and cognitive approaches in dialogue with other theoretical approaches, such as postcolonial studies, ecocriticism, aesthetics, and poststructuralism.

Introduction to Cognitive Cultural Studies provides readers with grounding in several major areas of cognitive science, applies insights from cognitive science to cultural representations, and recognizes the cognitive approach’s commitment to seeking common ground with existing literary-theoretical paradigms.

This book is ideal for graduate courses and seminars devoted to cognitive approaches to cultural studies and literary criticism.

Contributors: Mary Thomas Crane, Nancy Easterlin, David Herman, Patrick Colm Hogan, Bruce McConachie, Alan Palmer, Alan Richardson, Ellen Spolsky, G. Gabrielle Starr, Blakey Vermeule, Lisa Zunshine

Editorial Reviews

Review

An interesting exploration of the relationship between human cognition and cultural criticism that can enrich scholars in both cultural studies and cognitive psychology.

(William A. Adams Contemporary Psychology: APA Review of Books)

This book decisively marks the entrance of cognitive science into the mainstream literary and cultural studies, offering the reader a daunting panorama of conceptual interbreeding.

(Aristie Trendel Cercles)

This is the cutting edge of literary scholarship... Presents a rich array of innovative approaches to textual analysis for the researcher wishing to explore the 'cognitive revolution'.

(Carol Hoggart Cognitive Cultural Studies Review)

An entertaining read.

(Ray Rennard Metapsychology)
