Literature and Infinity
Description
About the Book:

This monograph is a sustained presentation of some of the contemporary theoretical perspectives on narratives, literary or otherwise. The reader does obtain a learned account of the fascinating work going on in the area that one may call by the hyphenated term 'literature-philosophy.' Writing is here seen as that transgressive activity which overcomes both philosophy, as well as literature itself.

This book is also about narratives. It is perhaps true that narratives are among the most pervasive of humanly-created phenomena. Narratives pre-exist the abstraction that we call 'language.' Human life is unthinkable without narratives. As human beings, narratives sustain us from birth to death. Narratives, particularly the religious, the mythical, or the folk are at the foundation of all cultures. And yet, narratives appear as fictions. Perhaps therefore, narratives never let us be in peace without further narratives. Just as language never lets us be in peace without further language.

About the Author:

Franson Manjali teaches Linguistics and Semiotics at Jawaharlal Nehru University, New Delhi. He has researched extensively on questions of meaning in language, literature and culture. His publications cover studies on a wide range of theoretical perspectives in the humanities. During an academic spanning over nearly fifteen years, Manjali has taught extensively, including courses in Semantics, Semiotics, Cognitive Linguistics, and Philosophies of Discourse. His earlier monograph entitled Nuclear Semantics-Towards a Theory of Relational Meaning (1991) was based on his post-doctoral research in Paris during 1987-89. His more recent publication, Meaning, Culture and Cognition (2000) is a selection of articles published in the 1990's.

Testimonials
Your website store is a really great place to find the most wonderful books and artifacts from beautiful India. I have been traveling to India over the last 4 years and spend 3 months there each time staying with two Bengali families that I have adopted and they have taken me in with love and generosity. I love India. Thanks for doing the business that you do. I am an artist and, well, I got through I think the first 6 pages of the book store on your site and ordered almost 500 dollars in books... I'm in trouble so I don't go there too often.. haha.. Hari Om and Hare Krishna and Jai.. Thanks a lot for doing what you do.. Great !
