  • Versteckte Selbstenthüllungen moderner Künstlerby Donat de Chapeaurouge

    Verlag und Datenbank für Geisteswissenschaften - VDG Weimar 1996; US$ 13.34

    Die Selbsterkenntnis, die man bereits seit der Antike jedem Menschen abverlangt hat, ist als Forderung in der Moderne speziell von Goethe und von Nietzsche abgewiesen worden, weil sie ohne Schädigung des Ich nicht möglich sei. Nur mit der Assistenz eines Vertrauten, so empfahl schon Sokrates, sei diese ungeliebte Prüfung durchführbar. ... more...

  • Werkzeuge und Instrumenteby Philippe Cordez; Matthias Krüger

    De Gruyter 2012; US$ 70.00

    Was verbindet Hammer, Pinsel und Geige? Werkzeuge und Instrumente vermitteln zwischen menschlichem Körper und Materie. So genießen diese Objekte eine genuine Gemeinsamkeit, und doch gründet gerade in der Differenz beider Begriffe die abendländische Unterscheidung zwischen handwerklichen und künstlerischen bzw. musikalischen oder wissenschaftlichen... more...

  • Art Meets Mathematics in the Fourth Dimensionby Stephen Lipscomb

    Springer International Publishing 2014; US$ 109.00

    To see objects that live in the fourth dimension we humans would need to add a fourth dimension to our three-dimensional vision. An example of such an object that lives in the fourth dimension is a hyper-sphere or ?3-sphere.? The quest to imagine the elusive 3-sphere has deep historical roots: medieval poet Dante Alighieri used a 3-sphere to convey... more...

  • Art's Emotionsby Damien Freeman

    Taylor and Francis 2014; US$ 29.95

    Despite the very obvious differences between looking at Manet?s Woman with a Parrot and listening to Elgar?s Cello Concerto, both experiences provoke similar questions in the thoughtful aesthete: why does the painting seem to express reverie and the music, nostalgia? How do we experience the reverie and nostalgia in such works of art? Why do we... more...

  • Artistic Practicesby Tasos Zembylas

    Taylor and Francis 2014; US$ 48.95

    Art matters. It affects us in our daily lives and is full of meanings that are valuable to all of us. As a catalyst for social interactions, art may either cause public conflict and create dissensions or facilitate mutual understanding and strengthen collective bonds. All of this is grounded in practices that develop and change along social interaction,... more...

  • Das haptische Bildby Markus Rath; Jörg Trempler; Iris Wenderholm

    De Gruyter 2013; US$ 112.00

    Die körperlich-plastische Wirkung von Artefakten stellt eine maßgebliche Grundlage ihrer bildaktiven Kompetenz dar. Im Gegensatz zur Auffassung, dass Bilder als virtuelle Medien allein dem Visus verpflichtet seien, steht die Erkenntnis einer Bildwahrnehmung, die stets auf mehrere Sinne ausgerichtet ist. In diesem Band sind Beiträge versammelt,... more...
