Book description

With forty-four newly commissioned articles from an international cast of leading scholars, The Routledge Companion to Literature and Science traces the network of connections among literature, science, technology, mathematics, and medicine. Divided into three main sections, this volume:

  • links diverse literatures to scientific disciplines from Artificial Intelligence to Thermodynamics
  • surveys current theoretical and disciplinary approaches from Animal Studies to Semiotics
  • traces the history and culture of literature and science from Greece and Rome to Postmodernism.

Ranging from classical origins and modern revolutions to current developments in cultural science studies and the posthumanities, this indispensible volume offers a comprehensive resource for undergraduates, postgraduates, and researchers.

With authoritative, accessible, and succinct treatments of the sciences in their literary dimensions and cultural frameworks, here is the essential guide to this vibrant area of study.
