The End of Meaning
Studies in CatastropheeBook - 2012
From the poetry of classical Greece to the popular culture of contemporary America, this book seeks to show that catastrophe, precisely as the notion of the sui generis, has always been generic. To single out catastrophe as the exceptional, or the monstrous, or the modern, runs contrary to the proposition underlying the essays here.
