Visual Phenomenology: Encountering the Sublime Through by Erika Goble

By Erika Goble

This volume—the moment in Max Van Manen’s Phenomenology of perform series—brings jointly own narrative, human learn technique, and an in depth wisdom of aesthetic discourse to redefine the elegant when it comes to direct and speedy event. Erika Goble first lines the concept’s starting place and improvement in Western philosophy, revealing how efforts to theorize aesthetic caliber in axiomatic or aim frameworks fail to account for the range of experiential paradoxes that may be evoked through a unmarried snapshot. She then examines numerous first-person descriptions of encounters with the chic with the intention to give some thought to a sequence of questions that experience escaped aesthetic philosophy up to now: What makes an event uniquely chic? What does this adventure demonstrate concerning the human phenomenon of sublimity whilst it truly is evoked through a picture? What does the event of the chic demonstrate approximately ourselves as being on the planet with photos? Goble’s booklet is a corrective to the rampant philosophizing in modern discussions of the elegant and a useful contribution to phenomenological learn.

Ante los angeles sensación de que lo viejo no termina de abandonarnos y lo nuevo no termina de nacer, l. a. nostalgia moderna y los angeles desilusión posmoderna, nos adentramos huérfanos en el siglo XXI. Si es cierto que las últimas filosofías modernas y los acontecimientos políticos del siglo XX llevaron contra las cuerdas a l. a. humanidad impidiendo cualquier discurso utópico o emancipatorio, también lo es que l. a. respuesta posmoderna no ha conseguido definir una solución para conseguir vivir el mundo mostrándose absolutamente estéril.
