  • The Pedagogical Primacy of Language in Mental Imagery: Pictorialism vs.
           Descriptionalism

    • Free pre-print version: Loading...

      Abstract: Pictorialism is the belief that mental representations are visual images of the objects they represent. Ned Block defines pictorialism as the supposition “that the mental representations of imagery represent in the manner of pictures” and descriptionalism as the claim “that the representations of imagery (and all other internal representations as well) represent in the manner of familiar symbol structures.”1 These two definitions are fair and neutral, despite Block’s status as a leading pictorialist.The debate between these two theories began within the philosophy of experimental psychology but soon spilled over into epistemology and other areas of philosophy. Given both the nature of the theories themselves and ... Read More

  • What Do We Look At When We Look at Art' The Bible, Visual Art, and the
           Redemption of Existence

      Abstract: According to scholars of mythology, Cleopatra and the Virgin Mary are closely linked: it is the Egyptian deity Isis whom Cleopatra incarnates, and it is Isis who is transformed by Christianity into the Virgin Mary (Isis, according to mythological accounts, gave birth to all living things yet remained a virgin). In light of the apparent mythological connection between Cleopatra and Mary, in our paper we shall look at two strikingly similar drawings by Michelangelo, drawings that depict first Cleopatra and then Mary with their heads turned to the left, staring into the distance—into, that is, the future. In connection to these drawings, we shall also examine the gaze of the ancient Greek Sibyl painted on the ceiling ... Read More

  • Rechoreographing Homonymous Partners: Rancière’s Dance
           Education from Loïe Fuller

    • Free pre-print version: Loading...

      Abstract: The present article stages a new kind of dance educational encounter with Jacques Rancière, motivated in part by the frequent objection from Rancière’s critics that his philosophy (of democratic rupture) inadvertently undermines the agency of the corporeally oppressed. The solution to this problem, I argue, lies in his concept of “homonymy,” when the latter is reinterpreted as a duet between two figurative dance partners, whose dance can thus be rechoreographed. Homonymy is also at work in Rancière’s most sustained engagement with dance, namely, in in his recent analysis of the symbolist poet Stephane Mallarmé’s dance criticism of the modern dance pioneer Loïe Fuller (1862–1928).1 More precisely, I identify a ...

  • The Complex Art of Murder

    • Free pre-print version: Loading...

      Abstract: Crime fiction, which includes the subgenres of mystery, suspense, and thriller, outsells all other fiction in the global book market. Agatha Christie is the bestselling fiction author of all time, and her most commercially successful novel—And Then There Were None (1939)—has sold more than one hundred million copies in over fifty languages.1 Crime fiction is sometimes conflated with detective fiction because the first century of crime fiction writing was dominated by short stories, novellas, and novels with detective protagonists, usually private detectives, the most popular of which are Conan Doyle’s Sherlock Holmes and Christie’s Hercule Poirot. Hardboiled detective fiction originated in the American pulp ... Read More

  • Deep Interdisciplinarity: Team-Teaching and Critical Thinking about Art

    • Free pre-print version: Loading...

      Abstract: Interdisciplinary, team-taught courses encourage students to think more deeply about how they understand the art of the past. As an art history professor and a philosophy professor, we put our disciplines in dialogue for students in our upper- level undergraduate course “Sight and Insight: Topics in Aesthetics and Art History.” The twenty- two students who enrolled brought widely varying levels of background and discipline-specific preparation. Despite this diversity, students shared core concerns about defining the nature of art, often grounded in unexamined ideas about beauty and mimesis. We employed an interdisciplinary approach that paired rigorous historical research with structured philosophical inquiry to ... Read More

  • Novel Reading as Aesthetic: The Nesting of Aesthetic Experiences and
           Reproduction of Aesthetic Perception

    • Free pre-print version: Loading...

      Abstract: Novelistic space is an extensive and ambiguous concept, since it may include plot space, local landscape space, mental space, and semantic space. Given how extensive and ambiguous novelistic space is, the question arises of how one defines the “boundary” of this space. Is there a generative mechanism for this kind of boundary' From an ontological perspective, novelistic space is derived from the novel’s text and serves mainly as the novel’s narration.1 As for a visual system, its intrinsic quality is determined by its components and structure. In terms of the compositional elements and structure of novelistic space, time and space are essential components. The former organizes the course of events for the reader ... Read More
