Abstract:

"The emergence and spread of new images - photography, film, television and audiovisual - have brought about an important epistemological revolution that has encouraged contemporary man to have a new attitude of confidence not only towards the image but also to reality. The modern knowledge, that exploded man's certainties into hundreds of relative truths, has been removed. The perfect doubling of reality offered by the new media has quietly eliminated doubt about the faithful restitution of reality into images, and, consequently, into the events of the outside world. Opposing this credulity, this mental breakdown, as Joseph Conrad called it, we will need to recover the principles and themes of modern thought that came into existence in the seventeenth century. This recovery will serve not only to oppose illusions and deceit, but also to better understand the nature of the new images"--Page 2 of cover.
