NEW BOOK: Twenty-First-Century Symbolism

Congratulations to Professor Nikolaj Lübecker who has released his new book ‘Twenty-First-Century Symbolism’.

The book argues that Verlaine, Baudelaire, and Mallarmé prefigure a view of human subjectivity that is appropriate for our times: we cannot be separated from the worlds in which we live and evolve; human beings both mediate and are mediations of the environments we traverse and that traverse us, whether these are natural, urban, linguistic, or technological environments.
