Chance and Control

03 0 2006

The autumn 2006 issue of FORUM addresses the interrelated concepts of chance and control within the arts and culture through a diverse selection of papers examining William Blake's reading of the Bible; the subversive potential of the anecdote in Soviet-era Russia; Kundera's reading of Nietzsche's concept of eternal recurrence in his novel The Unbearable Lightness of Being, and William Burrough's notion of the Controller's Dilemma as an alternative to the Prisoner's Dilemma.

Jackson Pollock - Full Fathom Five, 1947

Whatever your interest in the arts and culture, we are confident you will find something of interest herein.

Editors: Claire Altree & Keith Brown
