Friedrich Kittler obituary
The author focuses on the differences between djscourse networks’ in and inin the process developing a new analysis of the shift from romanticism to modernism This is a highly original book about the connections between historical moment, social structure, technology, communication systems, and what is said and thought using these systems – notably literature.
The author focuses on the differences between ‘discourse networks’ in and inin the process developing a new analysis of the shift from romanticism to modernism.
The work might be classified as a German equivalent to the Discorse Historicism that is currently of great interest among American literary scholars, both in the intellectual influences to which Kittler responds and in his concern to ground literature in the most concrete details of historical reality.
The artful structure of the book begins with Goethe’s Faust and ends with Valery’s Faust. In the section, the author discusses how language was learned, the emergence of the disccourse university, the associated beginning of the interpretation of contemporary literature, and the canonization of literature.

I can’t pretend I entirely understand, although I daily pretend to partially do so. It also gives such a great “reading” of the “recording angel” logo that it will get tattooed on my arm, or re-inscripted, as it were.
