Metamorphosis and Identity - used book

ISBN: 1890951234

ID: 8127859

The four studies in this book center on the Western obsession with the nature of personal identity. Focusing on the twelfth and thirteenth centuries, but with an eye toward antiquity and the present, Caroline Walker Bynum explores the themes of metamorphosis and hybridity in genres ranging from poetry, folktales, and miracle collections to scholastic theology, devotional treatises, and works of natural philosophy. She argues that the obsession with boundary-crossing and otherness was an effort to delineate nature's regularities and to establish a strong sense of personal identity, extending even beyond the grave. She examines historical figures such as Marie de France, Gerald of Wales, Bernard Clairvaux, Thomas Aquinas, and Dante, as well as modern fabulists such as Angela Carter, as examples of solutions to the perennial question of how the individual can both change and remain constant. Addressing the fundamental question for historians--that of change--Bynum also explores the nature of history writing itself. history,history and surveys,humanities,literary criticism,literary criticism and collections,medieval thought,metaphysics,philosophy,politics and social sciences,science Philosophy, Zone Books

Summary: "Once again, Caroline Walker Bynum's work captures, with characteristic vividness andprecision, the particularity and the urgency of the thought-patterns of a long-past Middle Ages. If,as Bynum argues, 'Wonder is the special characteristic of the historian,' then this book can countboth as a ringing validation of the historian's craft and as a challenge to modern persons to takeseriously studies of the past that replenish and sharpen our own sense of wonder at central problemsof the human experience of change and identity that, for good or ill, refuse to go away."
