Only Imagine: Fiction, Interpretation and Imagination by Kathleen Stock
Requirements: PDF Reader, 2.1 MB
Overview: Only Imagine offers a theory of fictional content or, as it is sometimes known, ‘fictional truth’.
The theory of fictional content Kathleen Stock argues for is known as ‘extreme intentionalism’; the idea that the fictional content of a particular work is equivalent to exactly what the author of the work intended the reader to imagine. Historically, this sort of view has been highly unpopular. Literary theorists and philosophers alike have poured scorn upon it.

The first half of this book attempts to argue that it should in fact be taken very seriously as an adequate account of fictional truth: better, in fact, than many of its more popular rivals. The second half explores various explanatory benefits of extreme intentionalism for other issues in the philosophy of fiction and imagination. Namely, can fiction give us reliable knowledge? Why do we ‘resist’ imagining certain fictions? What, in fact, is a fiction? And, how should the imagination be characterised?

Download Communities in Fiction by J. Hillis Miller (.ePUB)

Communities in Fiction by J. Hillis Miller
Requirements: ePUB Reader, 2.6MB
Overview: The book’s topic is the question of how communities or noncommunities are represented in fictional works. Such fictional communities help the reader understand real communities, including those in which the reader lives. As against the presumption that the trajectory in literature from Victorian to modern to postmodern is the story of a gradual loss of belief in the possibility of community, this book demonstrates that communities have always been presented in fiction as precarious and fractured. Moreover, the juxtaposition of Pynchon and Cervantes in the last chapter demonstrates that period characterizations are never to be trusted. All the features both thematic and formal that recent critics and theorists such as Fredric Jameson and many others have found to characterize postmodern fiction are already present in Cervantes’s wonderful early-seventeenth-century “Exemplary Story,” “The Dogs’ Colloquy.” All the themes and narrative devices of Western fiction from the beginning of the print era to the present were there at the beginning, in Cervantes.

Download Emergency Politics by Bonnie Honig (.ePUB)(.AZW3)

Emergency Politics: Paradox, Law, Democracy by Bonnie Honig
Requirements: ePUB or AZW3 Reader, 2.4MB
Overview: This book intervenes in contemporary debates about the threat posed to democratic life by political emergencies. Must emergency necessarily enhance and centralize top-down forms of sovereignty? Those who oppose executive branch enhancement often turn instead to law, insisting on the sovereignty of the rule of law or demanding that law rather than force be used to resolve conflicts with enemies. But are these the only options? Or are there more democratic ways to respond to invocations of emergency politics? Looking at how emergencies in the past and present have shaped the development of democracy, Bonnie Honig argues that democracies must resist emergency’s pull to focus on life’s necessities (food, security, and bare essentials) because these tend to privatize and isolate citizens rather than bring us together on behalf of hopeful futures. Emphasizing the connections between mere life and more life, emergence and emergency, Honig argues that emergencies call us to attend anew to a neglected paradox of democratic politics: that we need good citizens with aspirational ideals to make good politics while we need good politics to infuse citizens with idealism.

Download Conradian Contracts by Tamás Juhász (.ePUB)(.AZW3)

Conradian Contracts: Exchange and Identity in the Immigrant Imagination by Tamás Juhász
Requirements: ePUB or AZW3 Reader, 2.3MB
Overview: This book treats Joseph Conrad’s simultaneous interests in exchange, contracts, and the condition of displacement. The central hypothesis is that the novelist’s characters face the option of signing or rejecting what might, with some generalization, be called a social covenant. These individuals conduct a lonely or marginal existence and, to ease their isolation, they would like to (re)enter a community. For this reason, they are ready to contribute to larger collective causes and comply with those restrictions that social life, in its contractual aspect, requires. As Julia Kristeva puts it, ‘The foreigner is the one who works,’ yet engagement in transactions in order to earn a social position is fraught with difficulties. In return for their contribution, these hard-working characters do not always receive the compensation that they had in mind, especially when their definition of companionship violates the boundaries of legality and social propriety. Their private, illicit interests are bound to clash with communal ones, and the ensuing negotiating, readjustment, or compromise-seeking either crush the individual party or result in a redefinition of the notion of contract.
