Beckett and the Cognitive Method

Mind, Models, and Exploratory Narratives

Marco Bernini

Cognition and Poetics

  • Constructs a new theoretical framework for Samuel Beckett's work, reconceived as a form of exploration and modeling of cognition that parallels cognitive research
  • Analyzes Beckett's corpus and published letters in light of contemporary cognitive science, phenomenology, and narrative theory
  • Develops a series of novel terms and concepts for Beckett's cognitive methodology to inform new directions of research in cognitive literary studies, narrative theory, modernist studies, Beckett studies, and medical humanities
