About this product
- DescriptionSeeing Things explores all matters visual within the field of French studies. It brings together writings on French literature, philosophy and the visual arts, both from established critics and the new generation of young academics. From post-Freudian psychoanalysis through postmodernist theory to cognitive science, questions of vision have gained an unprecedented prominence in contemporary discourse. Seeing Things looks at the intersections of these questions with the concerns of Romance studies, and discovers fertile new territory in the crossover. Whether investigating the correspondences between photography and the vel, philosophy and perception, or time and film, the studies included here offer a radical exploration of western culture's kaleidoscope of images.
