Chaos: Transformative Power, Antagonistic Liberator and Threatening Master

Monday, September 5, 2011 - 8:33pm
More than Thought- A Scholarly Literary Journal Devoted to Consciousness

Chaos has long been a tormentor as much as a liberator. In addition, it has been a master by way of intimidation and fostering dread. The great fear of the unknown has terrorized many a person into submitting to comfort in a cage. The exploration of chaos and its relationship to consciousness may yield fruitful results as the absence of structure and order has the potential to give to a new worldview. What kind of relationship does chaos have with the development of consciousness? How does literature present chaos and its effect on consciousness? Whatever the conclusions, it is likely to prove rich and abundant for furthering human understanding.

Josep M. Armengol, Ph.D., and Àngels Carabí, Ph.D., Series Editors; Caitlin Lavelle, Acquisitions Editor - Peter Lang

In line with the latest trends within masculinity scholarship, the books in this series deal with representations of masculinities in culture, in general, and literature, in particular. The aim of this series is twofold. On the one hand, it focuses on studies that question traditionally normative representations of masculinities.

Besides literary representations, the series is open to studies of masculinity in cinema, theatre, music, as well as all kinds of artistic and visual representations.
