Body- and image-space : re-reading Walter Benjamin by Sigrid Weigel( Book )
24 editions published between 1996 and 2003 in 3 languages and held by 260 libraries worldwide
The last decade has seen renewed interest among philosophers and theorists in the writings of Walter Benjamin. In Body-and Image-Space Sigrid Weigel, one of Germany's leading feminist theorists and a renowned commentator on the work of Walter Benjamin, argues that the reception of his work has so far overlooked a crucial aspect of his thought - his use of images. Weigel shows that it is precisely his practice of thinking in images that holds the key to understanding the full complexity, richness and topicality of Benjamin's theory. Bilddenken, or thinking in images, and its relation to the body, 'the first material of human existence', are central to Benjamin's work. This approach, Weigel argues, resembles psychoanalytical modes of observation and she suggests that there also are affinities between Benjamin's thought and contemporary French theory, notably the work of Foucault and Kristeva. Focusing on those parallels, the author demonstrates the productivity of Benjamin's theoretical approach for contemporary gender studies, cultural theory and philosophy.; At the same time, her reading also reestablishes the buried links between early critical theory and post-structura between German high modernism and French postmodernist theory. Body-and Image-Space will be invaluable to anyone interested in gender theory, post-structuralism, cultural anthropology and philosophy

"Escape to life" : German intellectuals in New York : a compendium on exile after 1933 by Eckart Goebel( Book )
17 editions published between 2012 and 2013 in English and German and held by 130 libraries worldwide
After 1933, New York City gave shelter to many leading German and German-Jewish intellectuals. This compendium, adopting the title of a volume published by Klaus and Erika Mann in 1939, explores the impact the US, and NYC in particular, had on these authors as well as the influence they in turn exerted on US intellectual life. Moreover, it addresses the transformations that took place in the exiled intellectuals' thinking when it was translated intoEnglish and addressed to an American audience. Among the individuals presented in this volume, are such prominent names as T.W. Adorno, H. Arendt, W. Benjamin, E. Bloch, B. Brecht, S. Kracauer, the Mann family, S. Morgenstern, and E. Panofsky. The authors of the essays in this compendium were free to choose the angleand aspect deemed best to illuminate the given intellectual's work. Acclaimed NYC photographer Fred Stein, himself a German exile, produced numerous portraits of exiled intellectuals and artists. A selection of these compelling portraits is reproduced together in this book for the first time
Grammatologie der Bilder by Sigrid Weigel( Book )
7 editions published between 2008 and 2015 in German and held by 128 libraries worldwide
Das Buch der bekannten Literaturwissenschaftlerin untersucht die Formen des Bildertausches zwischen Wissenschaft, Religion, Kunst und Literatur. Jenseits der Kontroverse zwischen pictorial und linguistic turn geht es um das Wissen der Bilder an der Grenze zwischen Messen und Deuten: an der Schwelle zwischen Spur und Zeichen, Imaginärem und Sichtbarem, Material und Figur, Schauplatz und Erzählung, Daten und Graphik/Begriff. Momente des In-Erscheinung-Tretens stehen im Zentrum: von Bildern im Denken, von Affekten im Gesicht, von Transzendenz in Gemälden oder in der Dichtung. Ausgehend von der Differenz zwischen neuronalen Indikatoren und Semantik in den bildgebenden Verfahren der aktuellen naturwissenschaftlichen Forschung, widmet sich Sigrid Weigel vor allem dem Wissen, das Malerei und Einbildungskraft über Bilder bereithalten. Ziel ist es, durch die Aufmerksamkeit für das Detail und für das "Unbedeutende" dem "Geist wahrer Philologie" (Benjamin) zum Ausdruck zu verhelfen. (Quelle:
Empathy : epistemic problems and cultural-historical perspectives of a cross-disciplinary concept by Vanessa Lux( Book )
10 editions published in 2017 in 3 languages and held by 33 libraries worldwide
This book digs into the complex archaeology of empathy illuminating controversies, epistemic problems and unanswered questions encapsulated within its cross-disciplinary history. The authors ask how a neutral innate capacity to directly understand the actions and feelings of others becomes charged with emotion and moral values associated with altruism or caregiving. They explore how the discovery of the mirror neuron system and its interpretation as the neurobiological basis of empathy has stimulated such an enormous body of research and how in a number of these studies, the moral values and social attitudes underlying empathy in human perception and action are conceptualized as universal traits. It is argued that in the humanities the historical, cultural and scientific genealogies of empathy and its forerunners, such as Einfühlung, have been shown to depend on historical preconditions, cultural procedures, and symbolic systems of production. The multiple semantics of empathy and related concepts are discussed in the context of their cultural and historical foundations, raising questions about these cross-disciplinary constellations. This volume will be of interest to scholars of psychology, art history, cultural research, history of science, literary studies, neuroscience, philosophy and psychoanalysis
