Aesthetics After Metaphysics: From Mimesis to Metaphor by Miguel Beistegui

By Miguel Beistegui

This e-book makes a speciality of a measurement of artwork which the philosophical culture (from Plato to Hegel or even Adorno) has continuously missed, such used to be its dedication – specific or implicit – to mimesis and the metaphysics of fact it presupposes. De Beistegui refers to this size, which unfolds outdoors the distance that stretches among the practical and the supersensible – the gap of metaphysics itself – because the hypersensible and exhibit how the operation of paintings to which it corresponds is healthier defined as metaphorical. The circulation of the e-book, then, is from the classical or metaphysical aesthetics of mimesis (Part One) to the aesthetics of the hypersensible and metaphor (Part Two). opposed to a lot of the background of aesthetics and the metaphysical discourse on artwork, he argues that the philosophical price of paintings doesn’t consist in its skill to bridge the gap among the practical and the supersensible, or the picture and the belief, and show the practical as proto-conceptual, yet to open up a unique feel of the practical. His target, then, is to shift the place and role that philosophy attributes to paintings.

Qué cuenta como una vida: La pregunta por la libertad en Judith Butler (Teoría y crítica nº 21) (Spanish Edition)

«Para mí, desde un punto de vista filosófico, l. a. pregunta es: ¿qué significaría reconocer, aceptar, cierto tipo de permeabilidad, cierta manera en los angeles que somos afectados por otros a los que no conocemos o por los que no elegimos ser afectados? El mayor peligro para mí es el del sujeto autónomo y monolítico que intenta establecer límites e impermeabilidades absolutas, porque se niega a reconocer su carácter social y su interdependencia.
