Description

This session explores consciousness in the Medieval and Early Modern periods using theories such as Owen Barfield's evolution of consciousness, the Grid/Group Anthropology of Mary Douglas, Norbert Elias's figurational sociology, Lev Shestov's existentialist historicism, the current conversation relating theatricality and performativity to the social production of meaning, and the general milieu of post-post-modern thought in our post-theory era. The goal is to map the cultural contours of consciousness itself and describe significant transformations of consciousness in the Medieval and Early Modern periods. The papers reference Ockham, Chaucer, Sidney, the Mystery Cycles, and Monastic traditions.
