Davis, Roy W. 1993 0-7734-9558-4 224 pages The thrust of these symposium papers engaged the development of perspective in early modern England, an evolution in thought and practice that crossed disciplinary lines to be felt in the art, literature, and history of England. Individual papers explore perspectives on representation (e.g., history in fiction and fiction in history); development of frames for historical and literary narratives and their impact on point of view; implications of coordinate developments in painting and narrative, such as simultaneous introduction of fixed-point perspective and third person narrative; and the relationship between fact and fiction as they were defined in early modern England. The essays alter current perspectives on the origins of the early modern period, connecting new insights into intellectual developments to their embodiment in the art, literature, and history of the period.

Faraone, Rosella 2017 1-4955-0583-9 272 pages An examination and determination of Giovanni Gentile's role - also concerning racism in Italy - would not be complete without considering whatever is attributable to his person but also whatever was involved in the wide cultural activities he was responsible for. Much attention has rightly been paid to Gentile as a philosopher, politician, ideologist and organizer of culture. These activities are an integral part of Gentile's historical, cultural and human profile but also essential to understand and evaluate his individual dimension.
