In an analytical but more and more intimate dialog, A ardour for Specificity:Confronting internal adventure in Literature and Science investigates the diversities among adventure as conveyed in literature and event as apprehended via medical procedure. Can reviews be shared? How a lot do language and metaphor form experiential experiences? the place is the dividing line among a humanistic and a systematic method of event? In a chain of exchanges, Marco Caracciolo and Russell Hurlburt exhibit that these are unavoidably own matters, they usually don’t flinch—they relentlessly research no matter if Caracciolo’s presuppositions distort his realizing of studying reviews and no matter if Hurlburt’s attachment to the strategy he invented factors him to take a very slender view of expertise. Delving ever extra for my part, they target Hurlburt’s adventure sampling methods—beeping humans to find what used to be of their circulation of internal event in the meanwhile instantly ahead of the beep—at Caracciolo’s personal stories, an workout that places Caracciolo’s presuppositions to the attempt and leads him to find issues approximately event (his personal and literature’s) that he had notion impossible.


A ardour for Specificity, with its own revelations, unforeseen twists, and confrontational kind, reads like an epistolary novel, however it is a significant exploration of principles on the center of literature and technological know-how. it's a considerate try at advancing the rising “cognitive humanities,” clarifying a few center concerns within the cross-pollination of literature, psychology, philosophy, and attention science.
