Cult of the Will: Nervousness and German Modernity

Michael Cowan

Research output: Book/ReportBook


"Cult of the Will is a superb study that covers familiar terrain with an entirely new approach. Cowan provides very fine examples of interdisciplinary interpretation. His book goes far beyond providing a history of 'nervousness.' It finds the implications of psychiatric theory in the internal structure of film, architecture, dance, and literature." -Daniel Purdy, Penn State University
