THE FLESH OF IMAGES: MERLEAU-PONTY BETWEEN PAINTING AND CINEMA. Mauro Carbone and Marta Nijhuis. State University of New York Press, Albany, 2015. SUNY Series in Contemporary Continental Philosophy. 128 pp. 22 x 15 cm. ISBN 9781438458793 In English.
This title is offered as a special-order item. Publisher's description: In "The Flesh of Images," Mauro Carbone begins with the point that Merleau-Ponty's often misunderstood notion of flesh was another way to signify what he also called Visibility. Considering vision as creative "voyance," in the visionary sense of creating as a particular presence something which, as such, had not been present before, Carbone proposes original connections between Merleau-Ponty and Paul Gauguin, and articulates his own further development of the new idea of light that the French philosopher was beginning to elaborate at the time of his sudden death. Carbone connects these ideas to Merleau-Ponty's continuous interest in cinema an interest that has been traditionally neglected or circumscribed. Focusing on Merleau-Ponty's later writings, including unpublished course notes and documents not yet available in English, Carbone demonstrates both that Merleau-Ponty's interest in film was sustained and philosophically crucial, and also that his thinking provides an important resource for illuminating our contemporary relationship to images, with profound implications for the future of philosophy and aesthetics.
