In this book Alison Ross engages in a detailed study of Walter Benjamin s concept of the image exploring the significant shifts in Benjamin s approach to the topic over the course of his career Using Kant s treatment of the topic of sensuous form in his aesthetics as a comparative reference Ross argues that Benjamin s thinking on the image undergoes a major shift between his essay on Goethe s i Elective Affinities i and his work on i The Arcades Project i from up until his death in i i The two periods of Benjamin s writing share a conception of the image as a potent sensuous force able to provide a frame of existential meaning In the earlier period this function attracts Benjamin s critical attention whereas in the later he mobilises it for revolutionary outcomes The book gives a critical treatment of the shifting assumptions in Benjamin s writing about the image that warrant this altered view It draws on hermeneutic studies of meaning scholarship in the history of religions and key texts from the modern history of aesthetics to track the reversals and contradictions in the meaning functions that Benjamin attaches to the image in the different periods of his thinking Above all it shows the relevance of a critical consideration of Benjamin s writing on the image for scholarship in visual culture critical theory aesthetics and philosophy more broadly, No description available, In view of the current emphasis on language teaching within the Key Stage Framework it is vital that teachers overcome any existing lack of confidence and training in grammar and language concepts Specifically organized around the National Curriculum this book includes br br br all the grammar knowledge that a secondary teacher needs numerous grammar activities for use in the classroom contemporary language examples to which new teachers can relate br br By showing how language teaching can be a fun and enjoyable experience this book offers a refreshing resource for any secondary teacher at Key Stages and A level daunted by the prospect of teaching grammar and language, This book examines the ways that Heidegger Lacoue Labarthe and Nancy adopt and reconfigure the Kantian understanding of aesthetic presentation In Kant aesthetic presentation is understood in a technical sense as a specific mode of experience within a typology of different spheres of experience This study argues that Heidegger Lacoue Labarthe and Nancy generalize the elements of this specific mode of experience so that the aesthetic attitude and the vocabulary used by Kant to describe it are brought to bear on things in general The book goes beyond documenting the well known influence of Kant s i Critique of Judgment i however to open up a new way of approaching some of the central issues in post Kantian thought including why it is that art the art work and the aesthetic are still available as a vehicle of critique even or especially after Auschwitz It shows that a genealogy of contemporary theory needs to look at the question of presentation which has arguably been a question that has worried philosophy from its very beginning br br
