The Literary Agenda

Catherine Pickstock

The Literary Agenda

  • Part of the new Literary Agenda series from Oxford University Press
  • A fresh and unusual perspective on the literary
  • Provides development of a new theory which links thing to sign
  • A systematic consideration of repetition as a central philosophical category, as suggested by Soren Kierkegaard
  • An articulation of a new ontology which lies close to poetic categories
  • A new linking of recapitulation and restoration in the Church Fathers to repetition, along with a related account of the relationship of the formation of orthodoxy and Gnosticism.
