Overview

Aims and Scope

In this study, which compares vastly different text corpora, early modern texts on natural philosophy and literature are juxtaposed against modern gender studies. This daring venture is based on the hypothesis that these two text corpora pursue analogous interests and strategies, both striving to create holistic models for the interplay between matter and spirit and the use rhetorical figures for the purpose of generating knowledge.
