Writing in fragments is often held to be one of the most distinctive signature effects of Romantic, modern, and postmodern literature. But what is the fragment, and what may be said to be its literary, philosophical, and political significance? Few writers have explored these questions with such probing radicality and rigorous tenacity as the French writer and thinker Maurice Blanchot.
For the first time in any language, this book explores in detail Blanchot's own writing in fragments in order to understand the stakes of the fragmentary within philosophical and literary modernity. It attends in detail to each of Blanchot's fragmentary works (Awaiting Forgetting, The Step Not Beyond, and The Writing of the Disaster) and reconstructs Blanchot's radical critical engagement with the philosophical and literary tradition, in particular with Hegel, Nietzsche, Heidegger, Heraclitus, Levinas, Derrida, Nancy, Mallarme, Char, and others, and assesses Blanchot's account of politics, Jewish thought, and the Shoah, with a view to understanding the stakes of fragmentary writing in Blanchot and within philosophical and literary modernity in general.
Volume 11 of Advances in Entrepreneurship, Firm Emergence and Growth addresses the types of strategies that entrepreneurial companies use to effectively position themselves and gain competitive advantages. A companion to Volume 10 (Entrepreneurial Strategic Processes), Volume 11 identifies several strategic dilemmas and strategic choices that organizations face in their efforts to be more entrepreneurial. Top researchers from a diverse set of perspectives have contributed their latest research on a variety of topics such as celebrity entrepreneurship (Hunter, Burgers, Davidsson), niche strategies by banks (Bamford, Dean, McDougal), acquisition as an entrepreneurial growth strategy (Shrader, Monllor, Shelton), and adaptive strategies in the military (Kropp, Zolin, Lindsay). The strategic implications of tax policies (Franquesa, Anokhin, Mwaka), and the importance of knowledge management (Sciascia, Alberti, Salvato) and human resources management (West, Bernhardt) to the success of entrepreneurial strategies are also highlighted. The last two chapters constitute a spirited debate between researchers with sharply different views about the role of individual versus collective effort to entrepreneurial progress and success. Schoonhoven and Romanelli argue that market-creating processes should take over the focal role most recently played by opportunity-based approaches to defining entrepreneurship. Sarasvathy, Dew, and Ventresca, by contrast, highlight the intellectual vibrancy of opportunity-based approaches, and in their own contribution to this volume, point out future directions for entrepreneurship research based on an opportunity-focused approach.
