Book Summary:

What makes for a philosophical classic? Why do some philosophical works persist over time, while others do not? The philosophical canon and diversity are topics of major debate today. This stimulating volume contains ten new essays by accomplished philosophers writing passionately about works in the history of philosophy that they feel were unjustly neglected or ignored-and why they deserve greater attention. The essays cover lesser known works by famous thinkers as well as works that were once famous but now only faintly remembered. Works examined include Gorgias' Encomium of Helen, Jane Adams' Women and Public Housekeeping, W.E.B. DuBois' Whither Now and Why, Edith Stein's On the Problem of Empathy, Jonathan Bennett's Rationality, and more. While each chapter is an expression of engagement with an individual work, the volume as a whole, and Eric Schliesser's introduction specifically, address timely questions about the nature of philosophy, disciplinary contours, and the vagaries of canon formation.

Book Summary:

Eric Schliesser's Adam Smith is the product of two decades' reflection by the author on the great Scottish Enlightenment. Unique among treatments of Adam Smith, Schliesser's book treats him as a systematic philosopher. Smith was a giant of the Scottish Enlightenment with polymath interests; Schliesser thus explores Smith's economics and ethics in light of his other commitments on the nature of knowledge, the theory of emotions, the theory of mind, his account of language, the nature of causation, and his views on methodology. He places Smith's ideas in the context of a host of other philosophers, especially Hume, Rousseau, and Newton; and he draws on the reception of Smith's ideas by Sophie de Grouchy, Mary Wollstonecraft, and other philosophers and economists to sketch the elements of, and the detailed connections within, Smith's system. Adam Smith traces the outlines of Smith's intellectual system and situates it in the context of his highly developed views on the norms that govern responsible speech. In particular, the book articulates Smith's concerns about the impact of his public policy recommendations, especially on the least powerful in society. In so doing, Schliesser offers new interpretations of Smith's views on the invisible hand, the Wealth of Nations, his treatment of virtue, the nature of freedom, the individual's relationship to society, his account of the passions, the moral roles of religion, and his treatment of the role of mathematics in economics. While the book does offer a single argument, it is organized in a modular fashion and includes a helpful index; readers with a more focused interest in Smith's achievements can skip to their section of interest.

Book Summary:

An original and provocative book that illuminates the origins of philosophy in ancient Greece by revealing the surprising early meanings of the word "philosopher" Calling Philosophers Names provides a groundbreaking account of the origins of the term philosophos or "philosopher" in ancient Greece. Tracing the evolution of the word's meaning over its first two centuries, Christopher Moore shows how it first referred to aspiring political sages and advice-givers, then to avid conversationalists about virtue, and finally to investigators who focused on the scope and conditions of those conversations. Questioning the familiar view that philosophers from the beginning "loved wisdom" or merely "cultivated their intellect," Moore shows that they were instead mocked as laughably unrealistic for thinking that their incessant talking and study would earn them social status or political and moral authority. Taking a new approach to the history of early Greek philosophy, Calling Philosophers Names seeks to understand who were called philosophoi or "philosophers" and why, and how the use of and reflections on the word contributed to the rise of a discipline. Drawing on a wide range of evidence, the book demonstrates that a word that began in part as a wry reference to a far-flung political bloc came, hardly a century later, to mean a life of determined self-improvement based on research, reflection, and deliberation. Early philosophy dedicated itself to justifying its own dubious-seeming enterprise. And this original impulse to seek legitimacy holds novel implications for understanding the history of the discipline and its influence.

Book Summary:

In this collection of new and previously published essays, noted philosopher Eric Schliesser offers new interpretations of the signifance of Isaac Newton's metaphysics on his physics and the subsequent development of philosophy more broadly. Schliesser address Newton's account of space, time, gravity, motion, inertia, and laws-all evergreens in the literature; he also breaks new ground in focusing on Newton's philosophy of time, Newton's views on emanation, and Newton's modal metaphysics. In particular, Schliesser explores the rich resonances between Newton's and Spinoza's metaphysics. Schliesser presents a new argument of the ways in which Newton and his circle respond to the treatment and accusations of Spinozism, illuminating both the details of Newton's metaphysics and the content of Spinoza's. Schliesser provides a fine-grained analysis of some of the key metaphysical concepts in Newton's physics, including controversial interpretations of Newton's ideas on space, time, inertia, and necessity. Schliesser restates his provocative interpretation of Newton's views on action at a distance as he was developing the Principia. Newton's Metaphysics contains a substantive introduction, two chapters co-authored with Zvi Biener and with Mary Domski, new chapters on Newton's modal metaphysics and his theology, and two postscripts in which Schliesser responds to some of his most important critics, including Katherine Brading, Andrew Janiak, Hylarie Kochiras, Steffen Ducheyne, and Adwait Parker. The collection presents new and varied analyses on familiar focuses of Newton's work, adding important perspectives to the recent revival of interest in Spinoza's metaphysics.

Book Summary:

Misogyny is a hot topic, yet it's often misunderstood. What is misogyny, exactly? Who deserves to be called a misogynist? How does misogyny contrast with sexism, and why is it prone to persist - or increase - even when sexist gender roles are waning? This book is an exploration of misogyny in public life and politics by the moral philosopher and writer Kate Manne. It argues that misogyny should not be understood primarily in terms of the hatred or hostility some men feel toward all or most women. Rather, it's primarily about controlling, policing, punishing, and exiling the "bad" women who challenge male dominance. And it's compatible with rewarding "the good ones," and singling out other women to serve as warnings to those who are out of order. It's also common for women to serve as scapegoats, be burned as witches, and treated as pariahs. Manne examines recent and current events such as the Isla Vista killings by Elliot Rodger, the case of the convicted serial rapist Daniel Holtzclaw, who preyed on African-American women as a police officer in Oklahoma City, Rush Limbaugh's diatribe against Sandra Fluke, and the "misogyny speech" of Julia Gillard, then Prime Minister of Australia, which went viral on YouTube. The book shows how these events, among others, set the stage for the 2016 US presidential election. Not only was the misogyny leveled against Hillary Clinton predictable in both quantity and quality, Manne argues it was predictable that many people would be prepared to forgive and forget regarding Donald Trump's history of sexual assault and harassment. For this, Manne argues, is misogyny's oft-overlooked and equally pernicious underbelly: exonerating or showing "himpathy" for the comparatively privileged men who dominate, threaten, and silence women. l

Book Summary:

This is the first of two volumes which describe the development of Wittgenstein's philosophy from the Tracatus to his later writings. Part I of this volume is a survey of the whole of his work; Part II is a detailed examination of the central ideas for his early system. The second volume will cover later philosophy. The book fills a gap in the literature on Wittgenstein between brief introductions and detailed commentaries. Although necessarily selective, the doctrines and ideas chosen for detailed discussion are those which reveal the general structure of Wittgenstein's work. David Pears has taken full account of the origins of Wittgenstein's philosophy and its relation to the philosophies of his predecessors and contemporaries. But the author's main emphasis is on the internal organization of Wittgenstein's thought. Philosophy students concentrate on the details of his work but often find it difficult to see their place in the general pattern. This book presents the general and the particular within a relatively constant framework, thereby making Wittgenstein's thought more accessible to students of philosophy and to non-specialists.

Book Summary:

John Rawls is widely considered one of the most important political philosophers of the 20th century, and his highly original and influential works play a central role in contemporary philosophical debates. This collection of original essays explores the outpouring of scholarship and debate inspired by Rawls's political philosophy. Given the vastness of this scholarship, this volume aims to provide inroads to its central themes and preoccupations. The volume is divided into ten parts, exploring ten distinct questions, for example: Can Rawls's conception of public reason offer determinate answers to major questions of justice? Is ideal theory useful or relevant to resolving issues of justice in the nonideal world? Are libertarians correct to criticize Rawls's work for failing to prioritize economic liberty? When institutions aim at equality, what is it that they should seek to equalize--primary goods, capabilities, or welfare? For each question, there is an introductory essay, providing an overview of the relevant arguments from Rawls's work and the historical contours of the debate that ensued. Each introductory essay is followed by two essays written by scholars who take opposing positions, which move the discussion forward in a fruitful way. This volume provides readers with clear and in-depth explication of Rawls's arguments, the most important critical dialogue generated in response to those arguments, and the dialogue's significance to contemporary politics.

Book Summary:

D. D. Raphael provides a critical account of the moral philosophy of Adam Smith, presented in his first book, The Theory of Moral Sentiments. Whilst it does not have the same prominence in its field as his work on economics, The Wealth of Nations, Smith's writing on ethics is of continuing importance and interest today, especially for its theory of conscience. Smith sees the origin of conscience in the sympathetic and antipathetic feelings of spectators. As spectators of the actions of other people, we can imagine how we would feel in their situation. If we would share their motives, we approve of their action. If not, we disapprove. When we ourselves take an action, we know from experience what spectators would feel, approval or disapproval. That knowledge forms conscience, an imagined impartial spectator who tells us whether an action is right or wrong. In describing the content of moral judgement, Smith is much influenced by Stoic ethics, with an emphasis on self-command, but he voices criticism as well as praise. His own position is a combination of Stoic and Christian values. There is a substantial difference between the first five editions of the Moral Sentiments and the sixth. Failure to take account of this has led some commentators to mistaken views about the supposed youthful idealism of the Moral Sentiments as contrasted with the mature realism of The Wealth of Nations. A further source of error has been the supposition that Smith treats sympathy as the motive of moral action, as contrasted with the supposedly universal motive of self-interest in The Wealth of Nations.

  • File Pdf: analytic-philosophy-and-history-of-philosophy.pdf

Book Summary:

Philosophy written in English is overwhelmingly analytic philosophy, and the techniques and predilections of analytic philosophy are not only unhistorical but anti-historical, and hostile to textual commentary. Analytic usually aspires to a very high degree of clarity and precision of formulation and argument, and it often seeks to be informed by, and consistent with, current natural science. In an earlier era, analytic philosophy aimed at agreement with ordinary linguistic intuitions or common sense beliefs, or both. All of these aspects of the subject sit uneasily with the use of historical texts for philosophical illumination. How, then, can substantial history of philosophy find a place in analytic philosophy? If history of philosophy includes the respectful, intelligent use of writings from the past to address problems that are being debated in the current philosophical journals, then history of philosophy may well belong to analytic philosophy. But if history of philosophy is more than this; if it is concerned with interpreting and reinterpreting a certain canon, or perhaps making a case for extending this canon, its connection with analytic philosophy is less clear. More obscure still is the connection between analytic philosophy and a kind of history of philosophy that is unapologetically antiquarian. This is the kind of history of philosophy that emphasises the status of a philosophical text as one document among others from a faraway intellectual world, and that tries to acquaint us with that world in order to produce understanding of the document. In this book, ten distinguished historians of philosophy, mostly trained in the analytic tradition, explore the tensions between, and the possibilities of reconciling, analytic philosophy and history of philosophy.

Book Summary:

For many, the word 'pleasure' conjures associations with hedonism, indulgence, and escape from the life of the mind. However little we talk about it, though, pleasure also plays an integral role in cognitive life, in both our sensory perception of the world and our intellectual understanding. This previously important but now neglected philosophical understanding of pleasure is the focus of the essays in this volume, which challenges received views that pleasure is principally motivating of action, unanalyzable, and caused, rather than responsive to reason. Like other books in the Oxford Philosophical Concepts series, it traces the development of the focal idea from ancient times through the 20th century. The essays highlight points of departure for new lines of inquiry rather than attempting to provide a full picture of how the idea of pleasure has been explored in philosophy. The volume begins by showing how Plato, Aristotle, early Islamic philosophers, and philosophers in the Medieval Latin tradition, such as Aquinas, honed in on the challenge of unifying the variety of pleasures so that they fall under one concept. In the early modern period, philosophers shifted from understanding the logic of pleasure to treating pleasure as a mental state. As the studies of Malebranche, Berkeley and Kant show, the central problem becomes understanding the relation of pleasure to other sensory experiences, and the role of pleasure in human cognition and knowledge. Short interdisciplinary reflections interspersed between essays focus on art of 16th and 17th century textbooks and the difficult music of composers like Bach, which demonstrate translation of these concerns to cultural production in the period. As the essay on Mill shows, the 19th century development of scientific psychology narrowed the definition of pleasure, and so its philosophical focus. Contemporary accounts of pleasure, however, in both philosophy and psychology, are now recognizing the limitations of this narrow focus, and are once again recognizing the complexity of pleasure and its role in human life.

Book Summary:

Sir Anthony Kenny's engaging new history of Western philosophy now advances into the modern era. The Rise of Modern Philosophy is the fascinating story of the emergence, from the early sixteenth to the early nineteenth century, of great ideas and intellectual systems that shaped modern thought. Kenny introduces us to some of the world's most original and influential thinkers, and shows us the way to an understanding of their famous works. The thinkers we meet include René Descartes, traditionally seen as the founder of modern philosophy; the great British philosophers Hobbes, Locke, and Hume; and the towering figure of Immanuel Kant, who perhaps more than any other made philosophy what it is today. In the first three chapters Kenny tells the story chronologically: his lively accessible narrative brings the philosophers to life and fills in the historical and intellectual background to their work. It is ideal as the first thing to read for someone new to the history of modern philosophy. In the seven chapters that follow Kenny looks closely at each of the main areas of philosophical exploration in this period: knowledge and understanding; the nature of the physical universe; metaphysics (the most fundamental questions there are about existence); mind and soul; the nature and content of morality; political philosophy; and God. A selection of intriguing and beautiful illustrations offer a vivid evocation of the human and social side of philosophy. Anyone who is interested in how our understanding of ourselves and our world developed will find this a book a pleasure to read.

Book Summary:

Few would question that Albert Camus (1913-1960), novelist, playwright, philosopher and journalist, is a major cultural icon. His widely quoted works have led to countless movie adaptions, graphic novels, pop songs, and even t-shirts. In this Very Short Introduction, Oliver Gloag chronicles the inspiring story of Camus' life. From a poor fatherless settler in French-Algeria to the winner of the Nobel Prize for Literature, Gloag offers a comprehensive view of Camus' major works and interventions, including his notion of the absurd and revolt, as well as his highly original concept of pure happiness through unity with nature called "bonheur". This original introduction also addresses debates on coloniality, which have arisen around Camus' work. Gloag presents Camus in all his complexity a staunch defender of many progressive causes, fiercely attached to his French-Algerian roots, a writer of enormous talent and social awareness plagued by self-doubt, and a crucially relevant author whose major works continue to significantly impact our views on contemporary issues and events. ABOUT THE SERIES: The Very Short Introductions series from Oxford University Press contains hundreds of titles in almost every subject area. These pocket-sized books are the perfect way to get ahead in a new subject quickly. Our expert authors combine facts, analysis, perspective, new ideas, and enthusiasm to make interesting and challenging topics highly readable.

Book Summary:

Thomas Paine (1737-1809) was an author, pamphleteer, radical, inventor, intellectual, revolutionary, and one of the Founding Fathers of the United States. He has been called "a corsetmaker by trade, a journalist by profession, and a propagandist by inclination." Born in Thetford, in the English county of Norfolk, Paine emigrated to the British American colonies in 1774 in time to participate in the American Revolution. His principal contributions were the powerful, widely read pamphlet "Common Sense" (1776), advocating colonial America's independence from Great Britain, and "The American Crisis" (1776-1783), a pro-revolutionary pamphlet series. Paine was also deeply involved in the early stages of the French Revolution. He wrote the "Rights of Man" (1791), in part a defence of the French Revolution against its critics, in particular the British statesman Edmund Burke. Despite not speaking French, he was elected to the French National Convention in 1792. The Girondists regarded him as an ally, so, the Montagnards, especially Robespierre, regarded him as an enemy. In December of 1793, he was arrested and imprisoned in Paris, then released in 1794. He became notorious because of "The Age of Reason" (1793-94), his book advocating deism, promoting reason and freethinking, and arguing against institutionalized religion and Christian doctrines. He also wrote the pamphlet "Agrarian Justice" (1795), discussing the origins of property, and introduced the concept of a guaranteed minimum income.

Book Summary:

The Art of War is the collection of leadership and military strategies composed by the esteemed Chinese general, Sun Tzu. Divided into 13 distinct chapters, each category gives clarity and voice to varying subjects pertaining to the intricacies of war and wartime strategy. Having inspired generations of readers,The Art of War continues to be perceived as a kind of spiritual lighthouse for all those seeking sage leadership advice. Though Sun Tzu's expertise was considered to be professing wartime strategy, the principals enumerated within the text extend far beyond the logistics of a battlefield. Having lived during the Warring States Period, Sun Tzu understood conflict and political strife. Sun Tzu, using the culmination of decades worth of knowledge inspired generations of leaders with his words. His insight was not wasted on the bloodshed of lives lost in battle, yet it was composed into beautifully succinct proverbs and adages that make up the whole of The Art of War. Perhaps his most well-known axiom is, “Know the enemy and know yourself, and you can fight a hundred battles with no danger of defeat.” With proverbs as popular as the one above, the entirety of his work is composed of this level of insight. As pertinent as it was when it was written over 2,000 year ago, The Art of War is a true work of philosophical mastery. With eye-catching new covers and a professionally typeset manuscript, this edition of The Art of War is both modern and readable.

Book Summary:

Nicomachean Ethics Aristotle - The Nicomachean Ethics is one of Aristotle's most widely read and influential works. Ideas central to ethics—that happiness is the end of human endeavor, that moral virtue is formed through action and habituation, and that good action requires prudence—found their most powerful proponent in the person medieval scholars simply called "the Philosopher." Drawing on their intimate knowledge of Aristotle's thought, Robert C. Bartlett and Susan D. Collins have produced here an English-language translation of the Ethics that is as remarkably faithful to the original as it is graceful in its rendering. Aristotle is well known for the precision with which he chooses his words, and in this elegant translation his work has found its ideal match. Bartlett and Collins provide copious notes and a glossary providing context and further explanation for students, as well as an introduction and a substantial interpretive essay that sketch central arguments of the work and the seminal place of Aristotle's Ethics in his political philosophy as a whole. The Nicomachean Ethics has engaged the serious interest of readers across centuries and civilizations—of peoples ancient, medieval, and modern; pagan, Christian, Muslim, and Jewish—and this new edition will take its place as the standard English-language translation.

Book Summary:

Discourses on Livy is the founding document of modern republicanism, and Harvey C. Mansfield and Nathan Tarcov have provided the definitive English translation of this classic work. Faithful to the original Italian text, properly attentive to Machiavelli's idiom and subtlety of thought, it is eminently readable. With a substantial introduction, extensive explanatory notes, a glossary of key words, and an annotated index, the Discourses reveals Machiavelli's radical vision of a new science of politics, a vision of "new modes and orders" that continue to shape the modern ethos. "[Machiavelli] found in Livy the means to inspire scholars for five centuries. Within the Discourses, often hidden and sometimes unintended by their author, lie the seeds of modern political thought. . . . [Mansfield and Tarcov's] translation is careful and idiomatic."—Peter Stothard, The Times "Translated with painstaking accuracy—but also great readability."—Weekly Standard "A model of contemporary scholarship and a brave effort at Machiavelli translation that allows the great Florentine to speak in his own voice."—Choice

Book Summary:

'Sing and dance and be joyous, but let each one of you be alone, Even as the strings of a lute are alone though they quiver with the same music' So speaks Gibran's prophet Almustafa, on the eve of his return to his homeland after a 12-year exile in the city of Orphalese. Entreated by its inhabitants to impart of his wisdom before quitting their shores, Almustafa delivers a set of short and deeply profound discourses on aspects of life and the human condition, including love and marriage, work, commerce and laws, and pain and death. Written in 1923 by Lebanese philosopher Kahil Gibran, and since translated into over 40 languages, The Prophet is as enduring as it is popular. The ideas it expresses in spare and poignant cadences are ever more fitting as our daily lives become increasingly cluttered and chaotic,. Starkly and strikingly beautiful, The Prophet is a testimony to life and love.

Book Summary:

THE CLASSIC BOOK THAT HAS INSPIRED MILLIONS A penetrating examination of how we live and how to live better Few books transform a generation and then establish themselves as touchstones for the generations that follow. Zen and the Art of Motorcycle Maintenance is one such book. This modern epic of a man’s search for meaning became an instant bestseller on publication in 1974, acclaimed as one of the most exciting books in the history of American letters. It continues to inspire millions. A narration of a summer motorcycle trip undertaken by a father and his son, Zen and the Art of Motorcycle Maintenance becomes a personal and philosophical odyssey into fundamental questions on how to live. The narrator's relationship with his son leads to a powerful self-reckoning; the craft of motorcycle maintenance leads to an austerely beautiful process for reconciling science, religion, and humanism. Resonant with the confusions of existence, this classic is a touching and transcendent book of life. This new edition contains an interview with Pirsig and letters and documents detailing how this extraordinary book came to be.

Book Summary:

Covering topics ranging from literature to philosophy, history to social criticism, this is a snapshot of thought on 20th-century Europe (and the world) by one of Europe's sharpest wits and ablest pens. With chapter titles ranging from "The Miser and His Friends" to "The Red Reactionary," from "The Separatist and Sacred Things" to "The New Theologian" and "The Romantic in the Rain," this volume includes 39 brief sketches of individuals, each one of whom illustrates an aspect of contemporary society. Social, historical, and religious thought all figure prominently in this book, making it of great use in any study of the literary, religious, and social aspects of early 20th-century England and Europe generally. It will be of interest to students and scholars of the essay in English literature. It is a fine introduction to Chesterton's social criticism, which remains unique for its willingness to criticize some of the uncomfortable truths about capitalism without straying toward an inhuman bureaucratic socialism.

Book Summary:

This book, which presents the whole splendid history of English literature from Anglo-Saxon times to the close of the Victorian Era, has three specific aims. The first is to create or to encourage in every student the desire to read the best books, and to know literature itself rather than what has been written about literature. The second is to interpret literature both personally and historically, that is, to show how a great book generally reflects not only the author's life and thought but also the spirit of the age and the ideals of the nation's history. The third aim is to show, by a study of each successive period, how our literature has steadily developed from its first simple songs and stories to its present complexity in prose and poetry.

Book Summary:

데이비드 코퍼필드(David Copperfield)(1849~1850) : 데이비드 코퍼필드(David Copperfield)하면 미국 출신의 마술사가 떠오릅니다만, 그가 태어나기 백년도 전에 찰스 디킨스가 데이비드 코퍼필드(David Copperfield)란 작품을 발표하였습니다. 데이비드 코퍼필드(David Copperfield)(1849~1850)는 유복자로 태어난 주인공 소년이 어머니의 재혼 이후 불행한 학창 시절과 공장 노동에 시달리면서 험난한 삶을 이어가는 과정을 그려낸 디킨스의 자전적 소설입니다. 괴팍하지만 원리원칙을 중요시하는 고모할머니의 보호 하에 다시 한번 학업을 이어가는 과정을 5,500매가 넘는 대서사시로 펼쳐냈습니다. 데이비드 코퍼필드(David Copperfield)(1849~1850)는 두 도시 이야기(A Tale of Two Cities)(1859), 위대한 유산(Great Expectations)(1860~1861), 올리버 트위스트(Oliver Twist)(1837~1839)와 비교하면 국내에서는 상대적으로 덜 알려진 감이 있습니다만, 세계 각지의 문인들이 디킨스의 대표작으로 꼽으며 격찬한 ‘숨겨진 명작’입니다. 특히 같은 영국 출신의 작가 서머셋 몸(Somerset Maugham)은 찰스 디킨스의 작품 중에서도 수많은 인물군상이 등장하는 데이비드 코퍼필드(David Copperfield)를 유독 좋아해, 1959년 발표한 세계 10대 소설(The World's Ten Greatest Novels by W. Somerset Maugham)에 데이비드 코퍼필드(David Copperfield)를 포함시켰습니다. 함께 선정된 도서가 카라마조프 형제들(The Brothers Karamazoy), 오만과 편견(Pride and Prejudice), 전쟁과 평화(War and Peace)일 정도이니, 최소한 서머셋 몸의 관점에서는 데이비드 코퍼필드(David Copperfield)가 노벨문학상급의 소설인 셈입니다. 테마여행신문 TTN Korea 영어고전(English Classics)과 함께 어제도, 오늘도, 내일도 멋진 문학여행을! B 세계에서 가장 유명한 영국 작가는 누구일까요? : 16세기라면 윌리엄 셰익스피어(William Shakespeare), 20세기는 J. K. 롤링(J. K. Rowling)를 꼽을 수 있겠습니다만, 19세기라면 찰스 디킨스(Charles Dickens)를 빼놓고 영국 문학을 이야기할 수 없을 것입니다. 1912년 태어나 1879년 사망한 그는 우리로 치면 조선 시대에 해당하는 영국 빅토리아 시대(1837년 6월 20일~1901년 1월 22일)를 배경으로 수많은 작품을 발표한 작가로, 현재까지도 그의 작품은 영화, 드라마, TV 쇼 등으로 오늘날까지 끊임없이 변주하며 영국인의 곁에 살아 숨 쉬고 있습니다. 그의 삶, 그의 작품을 12가지 키워드로 압축해 소개해 드립니다. 디킨스답다! 디킨지안(Dickensian)! : 찰스 디킨스(Charles Dickens)와 ~ian의 합성어 디킨지안(Dickensian)은 ‘그의 작품에 등장하는 것들(relating to or similar to something described in the books of Charles Dickens)’을 뜻하는 신조어입니다. 실제로 노동자와 기자 등 항상 서민의 곁에 있던 그는 작품에서 노동 현장과 빈부 격차 등을 개성있는 캐릭터로 묘사하고, 풍자하는 것에 능했는데요, BBC One에서는 2015년부터 2016년까지 그의 작품을 모티브로 TV 쇼 시리즈를 제작·방영한 바 있습니다. 동화작가 안데르센(Andersen)은 왜 디킨스 집에서 5주나 머물렀을까? : 찰스 디킨스는 살아 생전에 대중적인 인기를 누린 만큼 영미권의 문호들과도 적잖은 교류가 있었습니다. 그 중에서는 덴마크 출신의 세계적인 동화작가 한스 크리스티안 안데르센(Hans Christian Andersen), 일명 안데르센이 대표적입니다. 안데르센은 1835년 자전적 소설 즉흥시인(L'improvvisatore)을 발표하고 그의 작품이 점차 영국에 소개된 1847년 처음으로 영국을 방문하였으며, 당시 이미 문학계의 거물로 자리 잡은 찰스 디킨스와 만났습니다. 이후 서로의 작품에 대해 호감을 가진 두 명의 작가는 수차례 서신을 주고 받으며 교류하였습니다. 1857년 안데르센은 디킨스가 새로 장만한 영국 런던 외곽의 켄트(Kent) 주에 위치한 Gads Hill Place를 방문해 무려 5주(원래는 2주를 허락받았으나)나 신세를 졌을 정도로 서로간의 우애가 돈독했습니다. 특히 평단의 악평에 괴로워하는 안데르센(1805년생)을 7살 연하의 디킨스(1812년생)가 격려하며, 위로해 주었다네요... 그러나, 5주 간의 체류 후 둘 사이는 완전히 멀어졌고, 이후 디킨스는 안데르센의 편지에 답장조차 보내지 않았습니다. 디킨스가 제3자에게 안데르센에 대한 불평을 끄적인 편지는 훗날 경매에 붙여졌고, 안데르센의 만행(?!)은 아름다운 동화로 그를 기억하던 전 세계의 독자들에게 까발려졌습니다. 손님과 생선은 3일이 지나면 상한다(Fish and visitors stink after three days)는 서양 속담에 딱 맞는 사례가 아닐 수 없습니다. 그가 죽을 때까지 거주한 Gads Hill Place는 그의 사망 후 경매를 통해 소유권이 이전되었으며 1924년 개즈 힐 초중고등학교(Gad's Hill School)로 활용되고 있습니다. 그의 후손이 학교 총재, 이사 등을 역임한 것이 흥미롭네요. 유네스코 세계유산(1987) 영국 런던 웨스트민스터 사원(Westminster Abbey)에서 고이 영면하소서 : 영국 런던의 국회의사당과 빅벤(Houses of Parliament and Big Ben)은 ‘민주주의의 요람’ 영국을 상징하는 건축물로써, 단순한 건축물 그 이상의 의미를 지집니다. 11세기 최초로 건설될 당시는 웨스트민스터 궁(Palace of Westminster)으로 쓰였으며, 공식명칭에도 그 흔적이 남아 있습니다. 전체 넓이 32,400평, 1100개의 방, 100개의 계단, 복도 총길이 4.8 km 등 런던에서 가장 규모가 방대한 건축물로 1987년 궁, 사원, 교회가 함께 유네스코 세계유산에 등재되었습니다. 찰스 디킨스는 영국 런던 웨스트민스터 사원(Westminster Abbey) 남쪽 익랑(South Transept)에 영면하였습니다. 남쪽 익랑(South Transept)은 그를 비롯한 작가, 문인, 소설가 등이 모여 있어 시인의 코너(Poets' Corner)란 별칭으로 불립니다. 그의 묘석 또한 우측으로 조지프 러디어드 키플링(Joseph Rudyard Kipling), 토머스 하디(Thomas Hardy)와 맞닿아 있습니다. 그의 묘비에는 다음과 같은 헌사가 새겨져 있습니다. He was a sympathiser to the poor, the suffering, and the oppressed; and by his death, one of England's greatest writers is lost to the world. 그는 가난한 자, 고통받는 자, 억압받는 자들을 동정하는 자였다. 그리고 그의 죽음으로 영국의 가장 위대한 작가 중 한 명은 세상으로부터 잊혀 졌노라. 영국 런던에서 찰스 디킨스를 만나는 7가지 방법 : 영국 런던은 찰스 디킨스가 기자, 작가, 편집자 등으로 활동하며 가장 뚜렷한 흔적을 남긴 도시입니다. 가장 먼저 만나보실 곳은 찰스 디킨스 여행자라면 빼놓을 수 없는 찰스 디킨스 박물관(Charles Dickens Museum)이겠죠! The Marshalsea Prison은 그의 부친이 빚을 갚지 못해 수감된 채무자 감옥(Debtor's Prison)입니다. 찰스 디킨스는 이를 부끄러워 했습니다만... 찰스 디킨스의 첫 필명은 보즈(Boz)였습니다. 보즈란 필명으로 발표한 단편을 모아 보즈의 스케치(Sketches by Boz)란 이름으로 출간하기도 했지요. 디킨스는 동생을 Moses라고 불렀는데, 이는 아일랜드 작가 올리버 골드스미스(Oliver Goldsmith)의 인기 소설 The Vicar of Wakefield(1766)의 주인공 찰스 프림로즈(Charles Primrose)에서 따온 것입니다. Moses, Boses... Boz는 훗날 그의 필명이 되었으니, 찰스 디킨스의 첫 필명은 올리버 골드스미스(Oliver Goldsmith)의 영향을 받아 탄생한 셈이며, 그의 무덤이 바로 런던에 있습니다. 찰스 디킨스는 데이비드 코퍼필드(David Copperfield)(1849~1850)에서 당시 최고의 인기를 누리던 작가들과 함께 올리버 골드스미스(Oliver Goldsmith)의 The Vicar of Wakefield(1766)를 직접적으로 기술한 바 있습니다. 찰스 디킨스의 오래된 골동품 상점(The Old Curiosity Shop)(1841)이 실제로 존재한다면?! 할아버지와 함께 상점에 살고 있는 Nell Trent를 만나러 런던으로 가보시겠습니까? -목차(Index)- 프롤로그(Prologue). 테마여행신문 TTN Korea 영어고전(English Classics) 101선을 읽어야 하는 7가지 이유 18가지 키워드로 읽는 찰스 디킨스(Charles Dickens) by 조명화 편집장 01. 공장노동자 출신의 위대한 영국인(100 Great British Heroes) 02. 크리스마스의 아버지(Father Christmas)? 크리스마스를 발명한 작가(The man who invented Christmas)! 03. 빈자들의 친구, 아이들의 후원자, 매춘부의 동정자(Sympathiser) 04. 동화작가 안데르센(Andersen)은 왜 디킨스 집에서 5주나 머물렀을까? 05. 유네스코 세계유산(1987) 영국 런던 웨스트민스터 사원(Westminster Abbey)에서 고이 영면하소서 06. 디킨스답다! 디킨지안(Dickensian)! 07. 크리스마스 캐럴(A Christmas Carol in Prose ; Being a Ghost Story of Christmas)(1843) 08. 두 도시 이야기(A Tale of Two Cities)(1859) 08-1. 크리스토퍼 놀란(Christopher Nolan)의 다크 나이트 라이즈(The Dark Knight Rises)(2012) 08-2. 토머스 칼라일(Thomas Carlyle)의 프랑스 혁명(The French Revolution)(1837) 09. 위대한 유산(Great Expectations)(1860~1861) 10. 올리버 트위스트(Oliver Twist)(1837~1839) 11. 데이비드 코퍼필드(David Copperfield)(1849~1850) 11-1. 올리버 골드스미스(Oliver Goldsmith)의 The Vicar of Wakefield(1766) 12. 어려운 시절(Hard Times)(1854) 13. 영국 런던에서 찰스 디킨스를 만나는 7가지 방법 14. 오디오북(Audio Books)으로 듣는 찰스 디킨스(Charles Dickens) 15. 찰스 디킨스(Charles Dickens) 어록(Quotes)(60) 찰스 디킨스의 데이비드 코퍼필드(English Classics076 David Copperfield by Charles Dickens)(1849~1850) Preface To 1850 Edition Preface to the Charles Dickens Edition The Personal History And Experience Of David Copperfield The Younger 01.
