By Christine Buci-Glucksmann

Christine Buci-Glucksmann’s The insanity of Vision is without doubt one of the most influential experiences in phenomenological aesthetics of the baroque. Integrating the paintings of Merleau-Ponty with Lacanian psychoanalysis, Renaissance reviews in optics, and twentieth-century arithmetic, the author asserts the materiality of the physique and international in her aesthetic theory. All imaginative and prescient is embodied imaginative and prescient, with the physique and the emotions continually at play at the sight view. therefore imaginative and prescient, as soon as thought of a clear, uniform, and totalizing approach of figuring out the cloth world, actually dazzles and distorts the belief of reality.

In all the 9 essays that shape The insanity of Vision Buci-Glucksmann develops her theoretical argument through a research of a major painting, sculpture, or influential visible image—Arabic script, Bettini’s “The Eye of Cardinal Colonna,” Bernini’s Saint Teresa and his 1661 fireworks show to rejoice the start of the French dauphin, Caravaggio’s Judith Beheading Holofernes, the Paris arcades, and Arnulf Rainer’s selfportrait, among others—and deftly crosses historic, nationwide, and artistic boundaries to deal with Gracián’s El Criticón; Monteverdi’s opera Orfeo; the poetry of Hafiz, John Donne, and Baudelaire; in addition to baroque architecture and Anselm Kiefer’s Holocaust work. In doing so, Buci-Glucksmann makes the case for the pervasive impact of the baroque throughout heritage and the continued significance of the baroque in contemporary arts.
