JOSEPH TABBI COGNITIVE FICTIONS PDF

Coming soon. The first comprehensive look at the effect of new technologies on contemporary American fiction. Bringing together cognitive science and literary analysis to map a new "media ecology," Cognitive Fictions limns an evolutionary process in which literature must find its place in an artificial environment partly produced and thoroughly mediated by technological means. Joseph Tabbi provides a penetrating account of a developing consciousness emerging from the struggle between print and electronic systems of communication. Intellectually challenging, very stimulating. Paves the way for more studies in its vein and wake.

Joseph Tabbi provides a penetrating account of a developing consciousness emerging from the struggle between print and electronic systems of communication. Central to Tabbi's work is the relation between the arrangement of communicating "modules" that cognitive science uses to describe the human mind and the arrangement of visual, verbal, and aural media in our technological culture.

He looks at particular literary works by Thomas Pynchon, Richard Powers, David Markson, Lynne Tillman, Paul Auster, and others as both inscriptions of thought consistent with distributed cognitive models, and as self-creations out of the media environment.

The first close reading of contemporary American writing in the light of systems theory and cognitive science, Cognitive Fictions makes needed sense of how the moment-by-moment operations of human thought find narrative form in a world increasingly defined by competing and often incompatible representations.

Cognitive Fictions

To say that this book presents close readings of some exemplary American novelists is perhaps less of a transparent claim than it seems. For I am offering close readings at a moment when the almost dead metaphor of proximity comes alive again. I am writing a book about books when many of the assumptions specific to print no longer constrain interpretation, and I am identifying a new mode of writing about the self when measures of both selfhood and literary evaluation are up for grabs. Electronic environments have recently brought to the foreground writers who work selfconsciously with narrative as an artistic medium— one medium among many possible media struggling for representational primacy. The print monopoly that made a norm of certain romantic and realist conceptions of the novel for a period lasting, let's say, from the establishment of English patent rights for book publishers to Charles Babbage's imagination of the Difference Engine has through the generations given way to a multiplicity of different media. The history of that intermedial struggle can be read— even as the terms in a well-made sentence activate one another, and vie with one another for weight and emphasis—in the ongoing tradition of formal experimentation within literature and the arts.
