A Companion to the Philosophy of Literature free pdf This volume in the Blackwell Companions to Philosophy series focuses on the main themes and topics in the philosophy of literature. It is composed of all newly commissioned essays, written by the top scholars in the field. Note: I received a lot of advice on this project over several iterations. The manner in which the volume was originally conceived is quite distinct from what is currently being proposed. Reviewers made clear what they thought the best course would be, and that is where we have ended up. I receive comments from six reviewers -- Peter Lamarque, Stein Olsen, Dominic Lopes, Eileen John, Roger Seamon and Allen Dunn -- and the current list of contributors and proposed contents reflects their collective advice. I am not including their reviews in this proposal, however, as these are the largely critical comments on an earlier versions of the proposal. I have since discussed the volume with the reviewers in follow-up, but this was in person at the ASA conference and at the APA. Given this, and also given the way Companions sometimes go (fantasy vs. reality), I propose the get the project under contract, get initial contributors lined up for all "the basics", and then send the TOC out for development review to fill in any gaps once we have a better sense of the actual (as opposed to theoretical) line-up.
