[Open Access] OLIVIER DUBOUCLEZ: Caravage – l’image en mouvement

CLICK HERE FOR THE PDF VERSION [OPEN ACCESS] En à peine vingt ans, de son arrivée à Rome à sa fin tragique à Porto Ercole, Michelangelo Merisi (1571-1610), dit Le Caravage, a bouleversé l’histoire de la peinture : brutalement et irréversiblement, il l’a fait entrer dans ce que l’on appelle « la modernité ». Un art sans précédent

[Open Access] Simone Villani, Andrea Altobrando, Realizing the Imaginary: Mental Images and the Instruments of Freedom

CLICK HERE FOR THE PDF VERSION [OPEN ACCESS] Abstract: We provide a phenomenological explanation of the particular function mental images play in the realization of enjoyment and their significance for human freedom on the basis of the idea, drawn from Sartre, that images are not things but rather a way consciousness behaves towards objects. The mental

Studia Phaenomenologica, Volume 23/ 2023: Phenomenologies of the Image

[Open Access] Emmanuel Alloa & Cristian Ciocan, Phenomenologies of the Image: Editors’ Introduction

CLICK HERE FOR THE PDF VERSION [OPEN ACCESS]. Images have been a remarkably constant preoccupation for the phenomenological tradition. Beginning with Husserl’s early investigation of image‑consciousness, with its threefold conceptual articulation of material Bildding, appearing Bildobjekt, and referential Bildsujet (Hua XXIII), phenomenological accounts of the image can be found in the classic works of Martin

[book review] Manfredi Moreno reviews “Naissances” by Frédéric Jacquet, in: Investigaciones Fenomenológicas vol. 18

Introducción La idea principal de nuestro autor es la de edificar una filosofía en tanto filosofía del nacimiento. Todo comienza a partir de una fenomenología que se asombra ante el enigma propio del acontecimiento del venir al mundo, de la emergencia del alumbramiento y del alumbramiento cosmológico del dar a luz. En este sentido, la

[book review] Dragoş Ivana reviews “Literary Imposture and Eighteenth-Century Knowledge” by Elena Butoescu, in: American, British and Canadian Studies 36

Starting life as a PhD dissertation heavily documented at Cambridge University Library, the Bodleian Library and the University of Leeds, Elena Butoescu’s book is at once topical and riveting. It zooms in on the eighteenth-century understanding and multifarious meanings attached to imposture and forgery, two “time-honoured” practices whose deontological and, above all, legal relevance can

[book review] Beata Piecychna reviews “Translational Hermeneutics. The First Symposium”, edited by Radegundis Stolze, John Stanley, and Larisa Cercel, in: Studia Translatologica 10

In recent years the hermeneutical approach to translation has received an in- creased amount of scholarly attention (see, e.g., Cercel 2009; Stolze 2011; Cercel 2013; Robinson 2013; Stanley et al. 2018), although it must be clearly stated that, formally speaking, research within this field, despite being deeply rooted in philosophical tradition, is still in its

[book review] Guillaume St-Laurent reviews “La phénoménologie comme manière de vivre” by Philippe Setlakwe Blouin, in Laval théologique et philosophique, vol. 77

Dans son récent ouvrage, La phénoménologie comme manière de vivre, Philippe Setlakwe Blouin entreprend de montrer qu’une phénoménologie conséquente devrait abandonner entièrement sa vocation théorique traditionnelle et assumer son potentiel transformateur sous la forme d’une éthique pratique du « laisser-être ». En ce sens, Blouin soutient que la phénoménologie devrait être réformée sous la forme

[book review] Michel Bitbol reviews “La Phénoménologie comme manière de vivre” in Revue de métaphysique et de morale, vol. 115

Que le titre du livre de Philippe Blouin soit très proche de celui de Pierre Hadot, la Philosophie comme manière de vivre, ne doit rien au hasard. Il s’agit en effet ici d’étendre à la phénoménologie la redécouverte par Hadot de la valeur éthique, pratique, et existentielle des philosophies antiques. Sur le plan historique, la
