Relationscapes : movement, art, philosophy by Erin Manning( )

20 editions published between 2009 and 2012 in English and held by 1,849 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"With Relationscapes, Erin Manning offers a new philosophy of movement challenging the idea that movement is simple displacement in space, knowable only in terms of the actual. Exploring the relation between sensation and thought through the prisms of dance, cinema, art, and new media, Manning argues for the intensity of movement. From this idea of intensity - the incipiency at the heart of movement - Manning develops the concept of preacceleration, which makes palpable how movement creates relational intervals out of which displacements take form." "Relationscapes is a radically empirical book, working directly out of examples and delving into the complexity of relations these examples suggest. It takes a "Whiteheadian perspective," recognizing Whitehead's importance and his influence on process philosophers of the late twentieth century - Deleuze and Guattari in particular. Relationscapes is truly a transdisciplinary book, not aiming to cover the ground of a particular discipline but making clear how the specificity of a particular inquiry can alter key questions that emerge in the interstices between disciplines. It will be of special interest to scholars in new media, philosophy, dance studies, film theory, and art history."--Jacket
Politics of touch : sense, movement, sovereignty by Erin Manning( )

18 editions published between 2006 and 2009 in English and held by 1,145 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Political philosophy has long been bound by traditional thinking about the body. Through an engagement with the state-centered vocabulary of this discipline, Politics of Touch examines the ways in which bodies continually run up against existing political structures. In this groundbreaking work, Erin Manning reconsiders how politics attempts to paralyze the body through the idea of the national body politic. In Politics of Touch, Manning develops a new way to conceive the role of the senses, and of touch in particular. Exploring concepts of violence, gender, sexuality, security, democracy, and identity, she traces the ways in which touch informs the body. In an original and expansive analysis of tango - a tactile, rhythmic, and improvisational dance - Manning asserts the necessity of considering the sensing body in motion in order to think about its political implications. With a fresh vision and an original theoretical basis, Manning shows the body as its own ontological category, and in doing so redefines our understanding of the sense of touch in philosophical and political terms
Ephemeral territories : representing nation, home, and identity in Canada by Erin Manning( )

11 editions published in 2003 in English and held by 788 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Ephemeral Territories weaves together narratives and representations of Canadian identity--from political philosophy and cultural theory to art and films--to develop and complicate familiar views of identity and selfhood. In a critical engagement with notions of territory, identity, racial difference, separatism, multiculturalism, and homelessness, Manning delves into the question of what it means to be at home in Canada
Thought in the act : passages in the ecology of experience by Erin Manning( )

14 editions published in 2014 in English and held by 716 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

""Every practice is a mode of thought, already in the act. To dance: a thinking in movement. To paint: a thinking through color. To perceive in the everyday: a thinking of the world's varied ways of affording itself."--Thought in the Act Combining philosophy and aesthetics, Thought in the Act is a unique exploration of creative practice as a form of thinking. Challenging the common opposition between the conceptual and the aesthetic, Erin Manning and Brian Massumi "think through" a wide range of creative practices in the process of their making, revealing how thinking and artfulness are intimately, creatively, and inseparably intertwined. They rediscover this intertwining at the heart of everyday perception and investigate its potential for new forms of activism at the crossroads of politics and art. Emerging from active collaborations, the book analyzes the experiential work of the architects and conceptual artists Arakawa and Gins, the improvisational choreographic techniques of William Forsythe, the recent painting practice of Bracha Ettinger, as well as autistic writers' self-descriptions of their perceptual world and the experimental event making of the SenseLab collective. Drawing from the idiosyncratic vocabularies of each creative practice, and building on the vocabulary of process philosophy, the book reactivates rather than merely describes the artistic processes it examines. The result is a thinking-with and a writing-in-collaboration-with these processes and a demonstration of how philosophy co-composes with the act in the making. Thought in the Act goes beyond proposing to enact a collaborative mode of thinking in the act at the intersection of art, philosophy, and politics."--
