Dialogues on Bakhtin: Interdisciplinary Readings
Mika Lhteenmki & Hannele Dufva (toim.)
Jyvskyl: Centre for Applied Language Studies, 1998. 116 s.

The ideas of Mikhail Bakhtin (1895-1975), who has become the foremost
Russian philosopher and thinker in the Humanities, have received much
scholarly interest in the recent years. Thus, the legacy of Bakhtin, which
during his lifetime clearly belonged to the realm of 'unofficial', has by
today gained a firm official and institutional status both in his homeland
and in the West.

The present volume represents an interdisciplinary view to the work of
Mikhail Bakhtin. The articles cover 'Bakhtinology proper' as well as
recontextualizations of Bakhtinian metaphors within various disciplines,
such as linguistics, psychology of language, literary criticism and
