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 122 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
