Description

Monika Kaup pairs post-apocalyptic novels by Margaret Atwood, Jos̩ Saramago, Octavia Butler and Cormac McCarthy with new realist theories from Bruno Latour, Humberto Maturana, Francisco Varela, Markus Gabriel, Jean-Luc Marion and Alphonso Lingis. She shows that, just as new realist theory can illuminate post-apocalyptic literature, post-apocalyptic literature can illuminate new theories of the real. Kaup showcases a context-based concept of the real. She argues that new realisms of complex and embedded wholes, actor-networks and ecologies Рnot the old realisms of isolated parts and things Рrepresent the most promising escape from the impasses of constructivism and positivism. show more
