Literature and visual art, the two modes upon which this project focuses, have been considered in relation to one another since antiquity. Addressing what he sees as a crisis in American institutions caused primarily by remote fathers who fail to provide definitive processes within the rituals of masculine maturation, Bly analyses the Wild Man in the story as a surrogate father who guides the youth through eight stages of male growth that lead the child toward a vigorous masculinity that is both protective and emotionally responsible.

Fictions of romance dominate literature until the cult of the prince and the courtier in the Renaissance brings the high mimetic mode into the foreground. Hinter, from the German, means behind, some buttress perhaps that is solid and perduring. They key problem of the West's approach to Buddhism is that Western religions have become private, individual, voluntary and introspective affairs. If inferior in power or intelligence to ourselves, so that we have the sense of looking down on a scene of bondage, frustration, or absurdity, the hero belongs to the ironic mode.

This theory also cannot explain the phenomenon of "the baby boom" in Western countries after the economic recovery and the Second World War. Habermas expresses the relevant differences among the uses of practical reason in morality and politics as sub-principles of the same principle of discursive justification, which he calls “D.” D simply names a discursive procedure: “just those norms of action are valid if all persons affected could agree as participants in rational discourse” (Habermas 1996, 107).

During the last forty years, the question of the relationship of architecture to its history—of buildings to books—has been one of the most important themes in debates about the course of modern architecture. But neither will psychology, if that term continues to refer to psychic rather than physical phenomena; nor will sociology, as Pareto, quite contrary to his intention, appears to have furnished us with evidence for believing; nor even will economics.

The definition of neoliberalism presented here is more abstract than usual - but it also suggests that neoliberalism has been underestimated. Though a good part of the Romantic criticism in all countries was in open reaction to the neoclassical school, much of French Romantic criticism seems more than that.

The true counter-movement to conventional, descriptive use of language is based rather on the discovery that one can move in language as if in another world, without having to cling to connections, objective facts, and events", Heissenbuttel, quoted in "The Failure of Conservatism in Modern British Poetry", Salt, 2003, p.109 "Any avant-garde activity is of course potentially a first exploration; but unless the terrain is subsequently inhabited, there is no reason to accredit an avant-garde with reconnaiassance as such", Jed Rasula, "Syncopations", Univ of Alabama Press, 2004, p.108 "Innovation in poetry is less contested (or ignored) now, and this is largely attributable to both the number and variety of women", Jed Rasula, "Syncopations", Univ of Alabama Press, 2004, p.42. "the avant-garde is the force that ... has insistently tested democracy's boundaries, probing its exclusions, its willingness to shut out people who refuse to sign up to majority tastes and values ... it is the avant-garde, in all its uncomfortable strangeness, that helps protect democracy from one of its own worst enemies - itself", Caroline Levine, "TLS", Nov 16, 2007, p.17. "Simply to write in English in forms considered experimental by English or American standards cannot function as it does for those to whom the dominant language is the mother tongue; to do so it to affirm what they reject: that Standard English is always already the center to be decentred", p.262, Nancy Gish in "Assembling Alternatives", Romana Huk (ed), Wesleyan Univ Press, 2003 "As long as an experimental writer whose signature is female aligns herself with the language poets, for example, ... she has a place on the literary map.

Marshallian theory reflects this belief in its notions of normal price and equilibrium and in its expectation of beneficial results from perfectly competitive markets in long-run equilibrium. A very long play, such as the Indian Sakuntala, may present all three phases; a very intricate one, such as many of Menander's evidently were, may indicate their outlines. It was the language of great literature and noble thoughts. Through such an analysis we may come to realize that the two essential facts about a work of art, that it is contemporary with its own time and that it is contemporary with ours, are not opposed but complementary facts.

The change of register at this moment bares the poetic dimension of Rear Window – it offers us a glimpse of the pervasive relationship between Jeff’s subjectivity and the fictional world that is at the heart of the film but that elsewhere is subsumed in its predominant style. And so, though his heart is with Shakespeare, he cannot give the reasons for Shakespeare's plays that he can for Jonson's. And lastly there are some brief quotations on coins, pottery, amulets, and the like.

One thing that bothered me a little was Tom's acting. Other things like books, mountains, courageous actions and railways are labeled as good instrumentally. Lincoln: University of Nebraska Press, 1983. 1st pub. 1966. [Working from Propp’s analysis of functions and the spirit of Lévy-Strauss, Greimas reformulates the seven dramatis personae, which he calls actants, into a matrix structure, a set of symmetrical oppositions which defines a kind of force field, a taxonomy whose inherent tensions generate the production of narrative.
