Making Sense in Life and Literature by Hans Ulrich Gumbrecht
Book DescriptionThis work describes an intellectual trajectory that can be traced from the interdisciplinary re-orientation of the humanities in Germany between 1975 and 1990 to similar issues being discussed in North America today. Its point of departure is the progression from the traditional positions of hermeneutics and reception aesthetics to new practices in the field of cultural history, central to which are concepts of "sense" and "reality" that motivated a fresh interest in the socio-historical contexts of literature and culture. On this basis, Hans Ulrich Gumbrecht develops a nontextual theory of narrative and advances a historical outline of canonized and non-canonized texts and cultural institutions in Europe from the Renaissance to the 20th century.

Books By Author Hans Ulrich Gumbrecht
In Praise of Athletic Beauty, Hardback (March 2006)
Looking beyond the usual explanations of why sport fascinates, this book strives for a language that can frame - even enhance - the pleasure we take in watching athletic events. It gives us the means to explore, understand, and enjoy even more acutely the aesthetic experience that our words-in-passing barely suggest.
New History of German Literature, Hardback (January 2005)
From the earliest magical charms and mythical sagas to the brilliance and desolation of 20th-century fiction, poetry, and film, this illuminating reference book invites readers to experience the full range of German literary culture and to investigate for themselves its disparate and unifying themes.
