Mapping Complexity: Literature and Science in the Works of Italo Calvino

by

This book fills a gap by providing the first in-depth study of Calvino’s interst in scientific models and methods and the ways these have informed his narratives, which makes it of interest to scholars in the field of Italian literature, comparative literature and postmodern and cultural studies.

In a work that goes well beyond numerous shorter contributions on Calvino and scientific method, the author demonstrates how closely Calvino's narratives and essays were indebted to contemporary developments in scientific and philosophical thought, in particular to la pensée complexe, and to chaos theory.
