Fact and Fiction explores the intersection between literature and the sciences, focusing on German and British culture between the eighteenth century and today.ÃÂ Observing that it was in the eighteenth century that the divide between science and literature as disciplines first began to be defined, the contributors to this collection probe how authors from that time onwards have assessed and affected the relationship between literary and scientific cultures.
Fact and FictionÃ¢ÂÂs twelve essays cover a wide range of scientific disciplines, from physics and chemistry to medicine and anthropology, and a variety of literary texts, such as Erasmus DarwinÃ¢ÂÂs poem The Botanic Garden, George EliotÃ¢ÂÂs Daniel Deronda, and GoetheÃ¢ÂÂs Elective Affinities. The collection will appeal to scholars of literature and of the history of science, and to those interested in the connections between the two.
