¿Para una lectura (potencialmente) luhmanniana de Shakespeare, o sólo para otra lectura más de Shakespeare?

Kevin Curran

Shakespeare’s Legal Ecologies.Law and Distributed Selfhood

Evanston: Northwestern University Press, 2017, 192 pp.

ISBN: 9780810135178


Shakespeare’s Legal Ecologiesoffers the first sustained examination of the relationship between law
and selfhood in Shakespeare’s work. Taking five plays and the sonnets as case
studies, Kevin Curran argues that law provided Shakespeare with the conceptual
resources to imagine selfhood in social and distributed terms, as a product of
interpersonal exchange or as a gathering of various material forces. In the
course of these discussions, Curran reveals Shakespeare’s distinctly
communitarian vision of personal and political experience, the way he regarded
living, thinking, and acting in the world as materially and socially embedded

At the center of the book is Shakespeare’s fascination with questions
that are fundamental to both law and philosophy: What are the sources of
agency? What counts as a person? For whom am I responsible, and how far does
that responsibility extend? What is truly mine? Curran guides readers through
Shakespeare’s responses to these questions, paying careful attention to both
historical and intellectual contexts.

The result is a book that advances a new theory of Shakespeare’s
imaginative relationship to law and an original account of law’s role in the
ethical work of his plays and sonnets. Readers interested in Shakespeare,
theater and philosophy, law, and the history of ideas will find Shakespeare’s
Legal Ecologies
to be an essential resource.

Palabra, persuasión y performatividad en la oratoria greco-latina

The theatre of justice: aspects of performance in
Greco-Roman oratory and rhetoric

Sophia Papaioannou, Andreas Serafim,
Beatrice da Vela (eds.).

Leiden ; Boston, Brill (Series: Mnemosyne
Supplements ; 403), 2017, pp.

ISBN: 9789004334649

The Theatre of Justicecontains 17
chapters that offer a holistic view of performance in Greek and Roman
oratorical and political contexts. This holistic view consists of the
examination of two areas of techniques. The first one relates to the delivery
of speeches and texts: gesticulation, facial expressions and vocal
communication. The second area includes a wide diversity of techniques that aim
at forging a rapport between the speaker and the audience, such as emotions,
language and style, vivid imagery and the depiction of characters. In this way
the volume develops a better understanding of the objectives of public
speaking, the mechanisms of persuasion, and the extent to which performance
determined the outcome of judicial and political contests.
