Today we publish over 30 titles in the arts and humanities, social sciences, and science and technology. In the early 1980s, rational expectations and new classical economics dominated macroeconomic theory, with the result that such pathologies can hardly be discussed within the vocabulary of the theory.MIT Press Journals Like the great debate between Einstein and Bohr on quantum physics,the debate between Hahn-Solow and Lucas's rational expectationismis a must for all serious students of macro. This essay evolved from the authors' profound disagreement with that trend.
It is the metaphysics of Newton: The Metaphysical Foundations of Modern Physical Science: a Historical and Critical Essay.
The most commonly used source for literary criticism is an anthology.
This is how scientificprogress should be done—by sober analysis rather than cleverrhetoric or frenzied ideology. It demonstrates not only how the new classical view got macroeconomics wrong, but alsohow to go about doing macroeconomics the right way.
Hahn and Solow argue that what was originally offered as a normative model based on perfect foresight and universal perfect competition—useful for predicting what an ideal, omniscient planner should do—has been almost casually transformed into a model for interpreting real macroeconomic behavior, leading to Panglossian economics that does not reflect actual experience.
Winchell’s study is far more than biography or straightforward history; what elevates this volume into a landmark study is Winchell’s evaluations and analysis of Brooks’s and Warren’s seminal textbooks, periodicals, and influence on later generations, showing how subsequent critics, notably Alfred Kazin, F. Matthiessen, and Leslie Fiedler added New Critical perspectives that were dependent on the critical milieu created by the southern school.
CLEANTH BROOKS AND THE RISE OF MODERN CRITICISM brings together much information that needed to be available in one source and favorably reviews the contributions of Brooks and his colleagues that shaped the form not only of highbrow literary studies but also of the teaching of literature in college classrooms for the latter half of the twentieth century.A literary criticism anthology is a collection of previously published essays and articles on a specific author or story usually written by many different authors and includes an editor or compiler who puts them all together for re-publication.When citing an anthology you will include both the author of the essay and the editor(s) of the book the essays were re-published in.Each of the ten essays deals with a particular conceptual problem or case study of different locations and modalities of Chinese-language, or Sinophone, production.From language to music, literature to popular culture, minority politics to internal diaspora, theories of sinography to China's quest for the Nobel Prize, this volume brings together leading and new voices in the study of Chinese literature from a variety of comparative and intranational perspectives. BURTT has given us a study of the history of modern science from an unusual but very important point of view.He has sought to lay bare the principle underlying and directing scientific discovery rather than to chronicle the discoveries in their objective and practical aspect.In addition, readers of southern novelists and poets, particularly William Faulkner, will find fresh insights and commentary not ordinarily discussed in most historical surveys of literary scholars. No teacher of literature can afford to be unfamiliar with it.MIT Press began publishing journals in 1970 with the first volumes of Linguistic Inquiry and the Journal of Interdisciplinary History. Macroeconomics began as the study of large-scale economic pathologies such as prolonged depression, mass unemployment, and persistent inflation.Contributors include scholars from Asia, North America, Europe, and Southeast Asia.It is an indispensable reference for anyone interested in contemporary China and the global politics of Sinophone literature.
