Description :

Language: English . Brand New Book. This book addresses the role and potential of literature in the process of contesting and re-evaluating concepts of nature and animality, describing one s individual environment as the starting point for such negotiations. It employs the notion of the literary event to discuss the specific literary quality of verbal art conceptualised as EnvironMentality. EnvironMentality is grounded on the understanding that fiction does not explain or second scientific and philosophical notions but that it poses a fundamental challenge to any form of knowledge manifesting in processes determined by the human capacity to think beyond a given hermeneutic situation. Bartosch foregrounds the dialectics of understanding the other by means of literary interpretation in ecocritical readings of novels by Amitav Ghosh, Zakes Mda, Yann Martel, Margaret Atwood and J.M. Coetzee, arguing that EnvironMentality helps us as readers of fiction to learn from the books we read that which can only be learned by means of reading: to think like a mountain (Aldo Leopold) and to know what it is like to be a bat (Thomas Nagel).
