Description - Mikhail Bakhtin by Michael Gardiner

This timely and comprehensive collection covers the contribution and significance of the famed Russian social and cultural theorist, Mikhail M. Bakhtin (1895-1975), as well as the work of other central members of the so-called 'Bakhtin Circle', especially Voloshinov and Medvedev. The material is organized thematically to provide a contextual basis of Bakhtin's thought and his central influences, including an investigation of the key concepts in Bakhtin's work (such as aesthetics, carnival, dialogism, the chronotope, and ethics); the major debates and interpretations around Bakhtin's writings; comparisons between Bakhtin and other sociocultural theorists, notably Foucault, Derrida, Habermas and Gramsci; and appropriations and applications of Bakhtin's ideas in such diverse fields as anthropology, geography, cultural studies and psychology. The four volumes are divided into six parts: Part 1: Bakhtin and his Circle; Part 2: Intellectual Influences and Contexts; Part 3: Key Conceptsand; Part 4: Debates and Interpretations; Part 5: Bakhtin and Other Theorists; Part 6: Working with Bakhtin: Applications and Extensions; This is the indispensable collection on Bakhtin and is destined to generate not only wider debate but a deeper understanding of Bakhtin's continuing intellectual relevance.
