Romanticism Across the Disciplines brings together thirteen essays written by prominent scholars from America and abroad to identify Romanticism's presence outside of one national tradition or a single discourse field. These scholars point out the relationship between Romanticism and the problems of history, the interpretation of the arts, science, philosophy, and culture. They show how the ideas and effects of Romanticism have entered every field of study through their place in life. The presence of many different approaches to Romanticism demonstrate its diversity as a philosophy and provide an opportunity for a wide, deep understanding of Romanticism and its place in the world.
