The threshold of the visible world

Author: Kaja Silverman
Publisher: New York : Routledge, 1996.
Edition/Format:   eBook : Document : EnglishView all editions and formats
Summary:
In The Threshold of the Visible World Kaja Silverman advances a revolutionary new political aesthetic, exploring the possibilities for looking beyond the restrictive mandates of the self, and the normative aspects of the cultural image-repertoire. She provides a detailed account of the social and psychic forces which constrain us to look and identify in normative ways, and the violence which that normativity implies.
