Katrin Ettenhuber. Published by Oxford University Press.

Katrin Ettenhuber’s new book is the first major study of the role of logic in sixteenth- and seventeenth-century English literature.  It explores how major authors of the period, including Shakespeare, Milton, Donne, Spenser, and Sidney, conceived of the arts of thinking and argument, and how they creatively appropriated and transformed logical concepts and ideas in their work.

“Paradigm-shifting and authoritative, The Logical Renaissance challenges and lucidly advances much that we thought we knew about rhetoric and the Renaissance. Every reader interested in the period will learn from this foundational study and delight in the brilliance of its ideas.” (John Kerrigan)
