Product Description

Review

"A commanding and consummate study of art, philosophy, the human sciences, physics, and biology in the matrix of cinema at the turn of the twentieth century. Blending contemporary theory with close readings of the foundational writings of modernity, Valiaho shows how the autonomy of the movie-machine shapes the ways we believe we think and live today. It will be a point of reference for every student of cinema, consciousness, and perception."--Tom Conley, Harvard University

From the Inside Flap

Hoe geeft het medium film invulling aan onszelf en onze wereldbeleving. (Engelstalig paperback)

Pasi Väliaho herdefinieert in dit boek cinema als een van de belangrijkste antropologische processen van de moderniteit door de aanwezigheid van het bewegende beeld in de kunsten, de wetenschap en de filosofie aan het begin van de 21ste eeuw. Verdergaand op het typische begrip van cinema dat op optische en linguïstische modellen is gebaseerd, neemt Väliaho het begrip ritme als richtsnoer voor het conceptualiseren van het morfogenetische vermogen van het medium om affectiviteit, gedrag en logica te produceren. Ook brengt het boek vanuit een vernieuwend perspectief in kaart hoe de nieuwe bewegingsdynamica en visualiteit van het bewegende beeld in ons denken over tijd en geheugen zijn genesteld.
