Amazon.com Product Description (ISBN 0791434125, Paperback)This book examines the ambiguities inherent in the concept of the agon as a motivating, conflictual force behind creative and social expression. The notion of agonistics extends far beyond the literary fame lent it by Harold Bloom to embrace all aspects of culture. The editors blend theoretical sophistication with an interdisciplinary approach and reposit the agon in a new, broad context for postmodern inquiry. Taking their inspiration from Friedrich Nietzsche's essay "Homer's Contest", Lungstrum and Sauer trace the evolution of the agon: from its vital function in ancient Greece, through modernity, and onward.
