同工異曲 : 跨文化閱讀的啟示 = Unexpected Affinities : Reading Across Cultures

張隆溪 著

這本小書的目的不僅在於展示東西方在觀念和主題表現上的契合,而且還要提出一個更強的觀點,即只有從東西方比較研究跨文化的視角,才可能獲得某些批評的洞見。 如果不超越單一文學傳統有限的視野,我們就不可能有開闊的眼光,來縱覽人類創造力的各種表現和無窮的可能性;而我們一旦跨越文化差異的鴻溝,有了開闊的眼光,再回過頭去反觀許多文學作品,就會發現有些東西我們過去竟然沒有留意到,也毫無批評的意識。

A Companion to Television is a magisterial collection of original essays that chart the history of television from its inception to the present day. Over thirty leading scholars across the humanities and social sciences look at television scholarship as it responded to technological, institutional, and aesthetic changes around the world.

The essays cover a myriad of topics and theories that have led to television's current incarnation, and predict its likely future. From technology and aesthetics, television's relationship to the state, televisual commerce, texts, representation, genre, internationalism, and audience reception and effects, A Companion to Television is an invaluable reference for understanding the significance of television in the modern and postmodern world.
