The Rhythm of Thought: Art, Literature, and Music after by Jessica Wiskus

By Jessica Wiskus

Between current and earlier, seen and invisible, and sensation and concept, there's resonance—so thinker Maurice Merleau-Ponty argued and so Jessica Wiskus explores in The Rhythm of Thought. protecting the poetry of Stéphane Mallarmé, the work of Paul Cézanne, the prose of Marcel Proust, and the tune of Claude Debussy less than Merleau-Ponty’s phenomenological mild, she bargains leading edge interpretations of a few of those artists’ masterworks, in flip articulating a brand new point of view on Merleau-Ponty’s philosophy.

 

More than purely recuperating Merleau-Ponty’s inspiration, Wiskus thinks in accordance with it. First reading those artists in terms of noncoincidence—as silence in poetry, intensity in portray, reminiscence in literature, and rhythm in music—she strikes via an array in their works of art towards a few of Merleau-Ponty’s most fun issues: our physically courting to the area and the dynamic technique of expression. She closes with an exam of synesthesia as an intertwining of inner and exterior geographical regions and a decision, eventually, for philosophical inquiry as a style of inventive expression. dependent like a bit of track itself, The Rhythm of Thought deals new contexts during which to process artwork, philosophy, and the resonance among them.
