Victorian Gothic fin de siecle literature homepage a short introduction The Gothic genre gained prominence in Britain in the late 18th century. Fog, smoke, decrepit mansions, insanity (usually afflicting a young heroine), sexuality, incest, and mystery are just some of the general characteristics of the Gothic literary tradition. The Gothic genre, which is still prevalent today, has undergone major shifts throughout its existence. In "British Gothic fiction, 1885-1930," Kelly Hurley draws on science fiction theorist Annette Kuhn when she writes, "The Gothic is rightly, if partially, understood as a cyclical drama that reemerges in times of cultural stress in order to negotiate anxieties for its readership by working through them in displaced (sometimes supernaturalized) form." During the end of the century, referred to as the fin de siècle, fears of change and a general opinion of the decline of ethical, moral, social, and sexual traditions were abundant.

Philosophy of perception Do we see what is really there? The two areas of the image marked A and B, and the rectangle connecting them, are all of the same shade: our eyes automatically "correct" for the shadow of the cylinder. The philosophy of perception is concerned with the nature of perceptual experience and the status of perceptual data, in particular how they relate to beliefs about, or knowledge of, the world.[1] Any explicit account of perception requires a commitment to one of a variety of ontological or metaphysical views. Categories of perception[edit] We may categorize perception as internal or external. Internal perception (proprioception) tells us what is going on in our bodies; where our limbs are, whether we are sitting or standing, whether we are depressed, hungry, tired and so forth.External or Sensory perception (exteroception), tells us about the world outside our bodies.
