The Disenchantment of Art


SKU: 089862407X Categories: , ,


Rochlitz’s critical reading of the philosopher’s work from On Language as Such and on the Language of Man to The Work of Art in the Age of Mechanical Reproduction values Benjamin’s sublime vision within its historical context, relating his ideas about language to current theoretical discussions. Benjamin believed that art was a pure language directly related to God, and like many of his contemporaries amended this idea to accommodate the revolutionary imperatives of the 1930s. The volume is a French translation originally published under the title Le desenchantement de l’art: La philosophie de Walter Benjamin .
