This panel focuses on the classical through the early modern periods, and seeks to discuss some of the cognitive frameworks that are either behind, or can be translated, into reading and writing. Particular priority is given to reason and specific logical systems, from Aristotelian to Baconian (and more!). Suggested topics include, but are not limited to: reader or writer as scientist; philosophies/frameworks of reading; and logical systems as literary methodologies.
