Romantic Sociability by Gillian Russell

Book Description

Challenging the assumptions which underlie an understanding of the 'Romantics' as solitary and anti-sociable, and Romanticism as representing the rejection of Enlightenment sociability, this 2002 volume introduces sociability to the field of Romantic literary and cultural studies. The volume engages with Jurgen Habermas' model of the 'public sphere' which emphasizes the coffee-house and club as models of an older, masculine eighteenth-century sociability, and focuses on the changing nature of sociability in British radical culture of the 1790s and on the gendered nature of sociability. In a range of essays which examine modes of sociability as diverse as circles of sedition, international republicanism, Dissenting culture, Romantic lecturing, theatre, and shopping, the volume transforms our understanding of Romanticism by exploring the social networks of such central Romantic figures as Anna Barbauld, Frances Burney, Samuel Taylor Coleridge, William Godwin, William Hazlitt, Anne Lister, Robert Merry, Joseph Priestley, John Thelwall and Mary Wollstonecraft.

Tracing War in British Enlightenment and Romantic Culture by Gillian Russell Tracing War in British Enlightenment and Romantic Culture, Hardback (September 2015)

This volume argues for the enduring and pervasive significance of war in the formation of British Enlightenment and Romantic culture. Showing how war throws into question conventional disciplinary parameters and periodization, essays in the collection consider how war shapes culture through its multiple, divergent, and productive traces.

New Waves in Philosophical Logic by Gillian Russell New Waves in Philosophical Logic, Hardback (July 2012)

Philosophical logic has been, and continues to be, a driving force behind much progress and development in philosophy more broadly. This collection by up-and-coming philosophical logicians deals with a broad range of topics, including, for example, proof-theory, probability, context-sensitivity, dialetheism and dynamic semantics.

Truth in Virtue of Meaning by Gillian Russell Truth in Virtue of Meaning, Paperback (September 2011)

The distinction between analytic and synthetic sentences-the idea that some sentences are true or false just in virtue of what they mean-is a famous focus of philosophical controversy. Gillian Russell reinvigorates the debate with a challenging new defence of the distinction, showing that it is compatible with semantic externalism.
