Irving Massey papers

 Collection — Box: 1-2
Identifier: 16/4F/1210
Collection contains correspondence, notes, working papers, and audiotapes from Particularism: An Interdisciplinary Conference held at the State University of New York at Buffalo on March 2-5, 1989. From the conference brochure: There has been a growing discomfort in many disciplines with the possibility that reality may in fact come to be seen as "only a reservoir for concepts" (Adorno). This conference follows from the conviction that the richness and the irreducible importance of the particular experience, the detail, and the event need to be reaffirmed.
