Toward a Cognitive Theory of Narrative Acts brings together in one volume cutting-edge research that turns to recent findings in cognitive and neurobiological sciences, psychology, linguistics, philosophy, and evolutionary biology, among other disciplines, to explore and understand more deeply various cultural phenomena, including art, music, literature, and film. The essays fulfilling this task for the general reader as well as the specialist are written by renowned authors H. Porter Abbott, Patrick Colm Hogan, Suzanne Keen, Herbert Lindenberger, Lisa Zunshine, Katja Mellman, Lalita Pandit Hogan, Klarina Priborkin, Javier Gutiérrez-Rexach, Ellen Spolsky, and Richard Walsh. Among the works analyzed are plays by Samuel Beckett, novels by Maxine Hong Kingston, music compositions by Igor Stravinsky, art by Jean-Baptiste-Simeon Chardin, and films by Michael Haneke. Each of the essays shows in a systematic, clear, and precise way how music, art, literature, and film work in and of themselves and also how they are interconnected. Finally, while each of the essays is unique in style and methodological approach, together they show the way toward a unified knowledge of artistic creativity.

Anger is an emotion that affects everyone regardless of culture, class, race, or gender—but at the same time, being angry always results from the circumstances in which people find themselves. In On Anger, Sue J. Kim opens a stimulating dialogue between cognitive studies and cultural studies to argue that anger is always socially and historically constructed and complexly ideological, and that the predominant individualistic conceptions of anger are insufficient to explain its collective, structural, and historical nature. On Angerexamines the dynamics of racial anger in global late capitalism, bringing into conversation work on political anger in ethnic, postcolonial, and cultural studies with recent studies on emotion in cognitive studies. Kim uses a variety of literary and media texts to show how narratives serve as a means of reflecting on experiences of anger and also how we think about anger—its triggers, its deeper causes, its wrongness or rightness. The narratives she studies include the filmCrash, Maxine Hong Kingston’sThe Woman Warrior, Tsitsi Dangarembga’sNervous ConditionsandThe Book of Not, Ngugi wa Thiong’o’sDevil on the CrossandWizard of the Crow, and the HBO seriesThe Wire. Kim concludes by distinguishing frustration and outrage from anger through a consideration of Stéphane Hessel’s call to arms,Indignez-vous!One of the few works that focuses on both anger and race,On Anger demonstrates that race—including whiteness—is central to our conceptions and experiences of anger.

The Oxford Handbook of Cognitive Literary Studies considers, via a variety of methodologies and combinations of interdisciplinary approaches, how the architecture that enables human cognitive processing interacts with cultural and historical contexts. Organized into five parts (Narrative, History, Imagination; Emotions and Empathy; The New Unconscious; Empirical and Qualitative Studies of Literature; and Cognitive Theory and Literary Experience), the volume uses case studies from a wide range of historical periods (from the fourth century BCE to the twenty-first century) and national literary traditions (including South Asian, postcolonial anglophone and francophone, Chinese, Japanese, English, Iranian, Russian, Italian, French, German, and Spanish).

Frederick Aldama's The Cinema of Robert Rodriguez (2014) was the first full-scale study of one of the most prolific and significant Latino directors making films today. In this companion volume, Aldama enlists a corps of experts to analyze a majority of Rodriguez's feature films, from his first break-out success El Mariachi in 1992 to Machete in 2010. The essays explore the formal and thematic features present in his films from the perspectives of industry (context, convention, and distribution), the film blueprint (auditory and visual ingredients), and consumption (ideal and real audiences). The authors illuminate the manifold ways in which Rodriguez's films operate internally (plot, character, and event) and externally (audience perception, thought, and feeling). The volume is divided into three parts: "Matters of Mind and Media" includes essays that use psychoanalytic and cognitive psychology to shed light on how Rodriguez's films complicate Latino identity, as well as how they succeed in remaking audiences' preconceptions of the world. "Narrative Theory, Cognitive Science, and Sin City: A Case Study" offers tools and models of analysis for the study of Rodriguez's film re-creation of a comic book (on which Frank Miller was credited as codirector). "Aesthetic and Ontological Border Crossings and Borderlands" considers how Rodriguez's films innovatively critique fixed notions of Latino identity and experience, as well as open eyes to racial injustices. As a whole, the volume demonstrates how Rodriguez's career offers critical insights into the filmmaking industry, the creative process, and the consuming and reception of contemporary film.

Wo früher Gesellschaftstheorien auf Kommunikation setzten, erscheint nun zunehmend Empathie oder Einfühlung als Kitt, der die Gemeinschaften zusammenhält. Doch was genau ist Empathie und was leistet sie? Fritz Breithaupt berücksichtigt in seinem Buch die psychologischen und kognitionswissenschaftlichen Erkenntnisse der letzten Jahrzehnte, aber auch die Literatur und Philosophie, die seit Jahrtausenden über Empathie und Mitleid nachgedacht haben, um verschiedene »Kulturen der Empathie« zu unterscheiden. Fluchtpunkt seiner Theorie ist eine Grammatik der Empathie, die menschliche Einfühlung als einen sozialen Prozeß ausweist, der komplexe Narrationen beinhaltet und eine Idee von Gemeinschaft ins Spiel bringt, die sich mit naturwissenschaftlichen Mitteln allein nicht hinreichend beschreiben läßt.

Das Buch bietet eine umfassende Analyse der Formen des Erzählens. Ausgangspunkt sind die typischen Erzählsituationen im Roman; auf dieser Grundlage wird die Typologie der Erzählweisen weiterentwickelt und differenziert. Über die idealtypische Klassifikation hinausgehend werden die vielfältigen Zwischenformen und Kombinationen von Erzählweisen beschrieben und in einem Typenkreis erfasst. Ansatz und Intention sind theoretisch-systematisch, die Befunde werden jedoch fortlaufend auf Textbeispiele bezogen und an ihnen verdeutlicht, wiederholt auch mit der Interpretation einzelner Werke verbunden. Das Ergebnis ist gleichsam eine Grammatik der Erzählkunst, eine Darstellung der wichtigsten Elemente des Erzählens und ihrer strukturellen Zusammenhänge. Sie ist so angelegt, dass das Buch als wissenschaftliches Arbeitsbuch, ebenso jedoch als Nachschlagewerk zu Einzelproblemen der neueren Erzählforschung benutzt werden kann.
