Example text

Literary research only gradually emerged as an area of specialized study, having been included as an element within historical and philological research in general. Moreover, literary research was, for a long time, founded on biographical studies of major authors and on historical approaches to the artworks and their place in a genealogy of styles, forms, and thematics (for an overview see Eagleton 1983; Wimsatt and Brooks 1957). The common term ‘literary criticism’ further suggests the affinity of this research to an appreciation of the ‘canon’ and a continuous evaluation of new artworks in this perspective.

Although European scholarship may have been especially instrumental in feeding the rhetorical tradition into contemporary communication theory, also in this area there has been a vigorous American substream of humanistic research (Kennedy 1980). , Burke 1957). , Duncan 1968; Edelman 1971). In the media field, Carey (1989) has been a central figure advocating such a rhetorical as well as historical perspective on the interrelations between modern media and earlier cultural forms. As expressed in his ritual model,᭣ also technologically mediated ‘communication’ serves to create and maintain ‘community’ – the common root of the two words suggests as much.

Though less familiar in the media field, other researchers working from historical and anthropological angles have substantiated the relevance of medium theory. Like Innis, they seek to avoid any strong technological determinism, exploring the social and cultural forms in which technology is diffused and adapted. In a historical perspective, Havelock (1963) suggested how writing and literacy had paved the way for a novel category of social system, interpreting Plato’s attack on the poets as announcing the passing of an oral culture.
