Connections between the two fields are multiple and nuanced: writers of literature aiming for new models for representing the world . Daniel Cordle, Postmodern Postures: Literature, Science and the Two Cultures Debate. Aldershot: Ashgate, 1999

Connections between the two fields are multiple and nuanced: writers of literature aiming for new models for representing the world have routinely engaged with scientific theories, while scientists have also leaned upon metaphor and other literary rhetoric in explaining their ideas. The course will examine a range of texts spanning literary genres which illustrate these connections. 2. Learning Objectives. Aldershot: Ashgate, 1999.

Postmodern Postures: Literature, Science, and the Two Cultures Debate. Ian McEwan excels at climate science but his one-dimensional protagonist makes you shudder. 2010, ww. Revising the Two Cultures Debate: Science, Literature, and Value.

In 1996 the physicist Alan Sokal planted a hoax article in the journal Social Text, mimicking the social constructionist view of science popular in the humanities, and sparked into life the ’science wars’ which had been rumbling throughout the 1990s. Postmodern Postures puts this contemporary controversy into the context of earlier debates about the ’two cultures’, between F.R. Leavis and C.P. Snow, and Mathew Arnold and T.H. Huxley. Through an interrogation of interdisciplinary approaches to literature and science, and a discussion of the arguments surrounding postmodern culture, the book formulates a literary critical methodology for literature/science criticism, highlighting both the benefits and the limitations of attempts to link the two cultures. Three case studies, focused through the issues of knowledge, identity and time, put this methodology into practice, showing how ideas resonate through the culture between literature and science.
