Abstract:
This thesis explores the interpretation of science through poetry and poetry through science, while drawing on insights from the social sciences and discourses that transcend disciplinary boundaries. The critical commentary serves as an introduction and a warning about the transdisciplinary work in the creative component of my dissertation. The creative component of my dissertation, titled, Phenomenology of the Feral puts forth an answer to the question: what is lost without discourse between poetry and philosophy of science? This thesis will introduce the transdisciplinary theorists who have taken up residence in the gulf between the humanities and the natural sciences. I have coined two phrases: Alice in Wonderland Philosophy and Through the Looking Glass Poetics to describe which side of the divide between the humanities and natural sciences the intellectuals originally located themselves. Alice in Wonderland Philosophy is approaching the arts and humanities from training and qualifications in the natural sciences, and symmetrically Through the Looking Glass Poetics is approaching the natural sciences from training and qualifications in the arts and humanities. I give a science-based interpretation of J.H. Prynne’s The Plant Time Manifold Transcripts through a close reading of the poem. This reading is characteristic of a radical approach to Alice in Wonderland Philosophy, an interpretation that relies on the reader understanding the scientific theory as opposed to the poetry in the text. Finally, I will locate my own creative writing in the gulf between the humanities and natural sciences. The literature naive approach is replaced with the science naive approach as an application of Through the Looking Glass Poetics. This interpretation explores my transdisciplinary work from the humanities side of the gulf through literary criticism by engaging with reviews of the published creative component.
