Spaces of Dissension : Towards a New Perspective on Contradiction


This volume focusses on concepts of contradiction and contradictory phenomena as a key concept in the Humanities and Social Sciences. By bringing together theoretical and empirical contributions from a broad disciplinary spectrum of scholars, the volume aims at advancing research in contradiction and laying the foundations for a new interdisciplinary field of research: "Contradiction Studies." The contributions dealing with linguistic phenomena, urban geographies, business economy, literary writing practices, theory of the social sciences, and language education show that contradiction, rather than being a logical exemption in the Aristotelian sense, proves to be a regular concept of reference in many fields of socially, culturally, and historically relevant fields of research.
