- Publisher's Summary
- By exploring manifestations of normative and non-normative thinking in the geopolitical and cultural contexts of Early Modern Italy, Spain, and the American colonies, this volume hopes to encourage interdisciplinary discussions on the early modern notions of reason and unreason, good and evil, justice and injustice, center and periphery, freedom and containment, self and other. We still dream early modern dreams (Reason, the Subject, the Nation, the Modern World), and we are still haunted by the void at the center of it all.
