Chaos, territory, art : Deleuze and the framing of the earth by E. A Grosz( Book )

12 editions published between 2008 and 2012 in English and held by 357 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Instead of treating art as a uniquely human and cultural creation that requires reason and refined taste to appreciate, Elizabeth Grosz argues that art - specially architecture, music, and painting - is born from the disruptive forces of sexual selection. Approaching art as a form of erotic expression that connects sensory richness with primal desire, Grosz finds that the meaning of art comes from the intensities and sensations it inspires, not just its intention and aesthetic." "By regarding our most cultured human accomplishments as the result of the excessive, nonfunctional forces of sexual attraction and seduction, Grosz encourages us to see art as a kind of bodily enhancement or mode of sensation that enables living bodies to experience the universe. Art can be understood as a way for bodies to augment themselves and their capacity for perception and affection - a way to grow and evolve through sensation. Through this framework, which knits together the theories of Charles Darwin, Henri Bergson, Gilles Deleuze, Felix Guattari, and Jacob von Uexkull we are able to grasp art's deep animal lineage. Art is not tied to the predictable and known but linked to new futures not contained in the present. Its animal affiliations ensure that art is intensely political and charged with the creation of new worlds and new forms of living. It is the way in which life experiments with materiality, or nature, in order to bring about change."--Jacket
Becomings : explorations in time, memory, and futures by E. A Grosz( Book )

8 editions published in 1999 in English and held by 335 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

With the advent of the new millennium, the notion of the future, and of time in general, has taken on greater significance in postmodern thought. Although the equally pervasive and abstract concept of space has generated a vast body of disciplines, time, and the related idea of "becoming" (transforming, mutating, and metamorphosing) have until now received little theoretical attention. This volume explores the ontological, epistemic, and political implications of rethinking time as a dynamic and irreversible force. Drawing on ideas from the natural sciences, as well as from literature, philosophy, politics, and cultural analyses, its authors seek to stimulate further research in both the sciences and the humanities which highlights the temporal foundations of matter and culture.The first section of the volume, "The Becoming of the World," provides a broad introduction to the concepts of time. The second section, "Knowing and Doing Otherwise," addresses the forces within cultural and intellectual practices which produce various becomings and new futures. It also analyzes how alternative models of subjectivity and corporeality may be generated through different conceptions of time. "Global Futures," the third section, considers the possibilities for the social, political, and cultural transformation of individuals and nations. Show More Show Less

Becoming undone : Darwinian reflections on life, politics, and art by E. A Grosz( Book )

14 editions published in 2011 in English and Undetermined and held by 229 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

In this book Grosz addresses the concepts of llife, politics and art by exploring the implications of Darwin's account of the evolution of species. Challenging characterizations of Darwin's work as a form of genetic determinism, Grosz shows that his writing reveals an insistence on the difference between natural selection and sexual selection, the principles that regulate survival and attractiveness, respectively. Sexual selection complicates natural selection by introducing aesthetic factors and the expression of individual will, desire, or pleasure. Grosz explores how Darwin's theory of sexual selection transforms philosophy, our understanding of humanity in its male and female forms, our ideas of political relationsn and our concepts of art. Connecting the naturalist's work to the writings of Bergson, Deleuze and Irigaray, she outlines a postmodern Darwinism that understands all of life as forms of competing and coordinating modes of openness
