AUTHOR

Alexander, Anna, Roberts, Mark S.

SUMMARY

This is the first comprehensive text to address addiction and its multiple effects on and extensions into art, literature, philosophy, and psychology. Most research into addiction has taken place within the disciplines of medicine, criminology, politics, and social psychology. When seen from a broad cultural perspective, however, addiction emerges directly alongside modernity, haunting its various discourses of digression, dissent, and the transcendence of the commonplace. Who could even imagine modern writing without the addictive, visionary excesses of writers like Baudelaire, DeQuincey, Poe, Burroughs, or Artaud? Or, for that matter, modern culture without its "outsiders, " its incorrigible addicts, its defaced subjects: smokers, users, overeaters, alcoholics, the insane?Alexander, Anna is the author of 'High Culture Reflections on Addiction and Modernity' with ISBN 9780791455548 and ISBN 0791455548.
