This volume—the moment in Max Van Manen’s Phenomenology of perform series—brings jointly own narrative, human examine technique, and an intensive wisdom of aesthetic discourse to redefine the chic by way of direct and instant event. Erika Goble first lines the concept’s foundation and improvement in Western philosophy, revealing how efforts to theorize aesthetic caliber in axiomatic or goal frameworks fail to account for the diversity of experiential paradoxes that may be evoked through a unmarried photograph. She then examines numerous first-person descriptions of encounters with the elegant as a way to consider a chain of questions that experience escaped aesthetic philosophy to date: What makes an adventure uniquely chic? What does this event exhibit in regards to the human phenomenon of sublimity whilst it really is evoked through a picture? What does the event of the chic exhibit approximately ourselves as being on the planet with photographs? Goble’s publication is a corrective to the rampant philosophizing in modern discussions of the chic and a useful contribution to phenomenological examine.

Sem excluir os textos teóricos anteriores, o trabalho se concentra principalmente nos escritos genealógicos de Foucault e retoma os temas do poder disciplinar, do dispositivo de sexualidade, enfim, das técnicas de controle e intervenção sobre os corpos com o propósito de construir, para uma emergente sociedade capitalista business, indivíduos dóceis, úteis e adaptáveis aos aparelhos de produção.
Márcio Alves da Fonseca leva o seu compromisso com Foucault para além da fidelidade exigida pelo rigor exegético no trato com os textos. Ele leva também a sério o engajamento de Foucault com o diagnóstico do presente. E é isso que constitui, a meu ver, um dos muitos méritos deste livro, além também do despojamento e da leveza do estilo.

largely dispenses with the mind's eye. within the approach, he casts new mild on a succession of matters: at the 'paradox of fiction', at the factor of fictional narrators, at the challenge of 'imaginative resistance', and at the nature of our engagement with film.

All Ears: The Aesthetics of Espionage lines the lengthy historical past of moles from the Bible, via Jeremy Bentham’s “panacoustic” venture, the entire strategy to the intelligence-gathering community referred to as “Echelon.” including this archeology of auditory surveillance, Szendy bargains an enticing account of spycraft’s representations in literature (Sophocles, Shakespeare, Joyce, Kafka, Borges), opera (Monteverdi, Mozart, Berg), and picture (Lang, Hitchcock, Coppola, De Palma).
Following within the footsteps of Orpheus, the booklet proposes a brand new suggestion of “overhearing” that connects the act of spying to an over the top intensification of listening. on the middle of listening Szendy locates the ear of the opposite that manifests itself because the originary department of a “split-hearing” that turns the force for mastery and surveillance into the demise drive.

This fourth quantity within the sequence, Beyond the cultured and the Anti-Aesthetic, makes a speciality of questions revolving round the thoughts of the classy, the anti-aesthetic, and the political. The publication is ready the truth that now, virtually thirty years after Hal Foster outlined the anti-aesthetic, there's nonetheless no conceivable substitute to the dichotomy among aesthetics and anti- or nonaesthetic paintings. The deadlock is made tougher via the proliferation of id politics, and it truly is made much less negotiable through the hegemony of anti-aesthetics in educational discourse on paintings. The principal query of this booklet is whether or not artists and academicians are freed from this selection in perform, in pedagogy, and in theory.
