Remaining in Light
Remaining in Light (August 1993)
Ant Meditations on a Painting By Edward Hopper
John Taggart - Author

This is the first sustained, critical examination of the work of Edward Hopper, a major twentieth-century American painter. It is a sequence of meditations on his painting "A Woman in the Sun." Each meditation, informed by Derrida's conception of the supplement, is about both the painting and about the nature of the reading process.

"It is a compelling investigation of a 'problem' largely neglected by contemporary poets, critics, and theori...(Read More)
The Garden as an Art

Shattered Forms
Shattered Forms (September 1992)
Art Brut, Phantasms, Modernism
Allen S. Weiss - Author

Art Brut, also termed Outsider Art, has long been suppressed from most art historical writing. Why this rejection? The hyperbolic expressions of Romanticism and Symbolism nourished a desire for derangement and dissociation that inspired both Expressionism and Surrealism. Simulated delirium became the object of the new art -- experimental, avant-garde, modernist -- which arose from the fragmented codes, the shattered forms of everyday communicati...(Read More)

Islamic Art and Spirituality (February 1987)
Seyyed Hossein Nasr - Author

Ranging across calligraphy, painting, architecture, literature, music, and the plastic arts, Nasr penetrates to the inner dimension of Islam and shows the role art plays in the life of individua...(Read More)

Picturing the World
Picturing the World (November 1985)
John C. Gilmour - Author

Scientists are portrayed as champions of objectivity and truth, and artists as champions of subjectivity and creative expression. Through analysis of modern art, John C. Gilmour shows how misleading is this separation of the world into objective and subjective spheres. This false dichotomy depends upon a dated philosophy of mind. The issues posed are developed from the ideas of Nietzche, Heidegger, Merleau-Ponty, Gadamer, Ricoeur, Wittgenstein, R...(Read More)
