08-Jan-12 - Philosophy, Art, and the Specters of Jacques Derrida is now available!

Cambria Press is pleased to announce that Philosophy, Art, and the Specters of Jacques Derrida by Gray Kochhar-Lindgren is now available.

Although there is a significant literature on the philosophy of Jacques Derrida, there are few analyses that address the deconstructive critique of phenomenology as it simultaneously plays across range of cultural productions including literature, painting, cinema, new media, and the structure of the university. Using the critical figures of “ghost” and “shadow”—and initiating a vocabulary of phantomenology—this book traces the implications of Derridean “spectrality” on the understanding of contemporary thought, culture, and experience.

This study examines the interconnections of philosophy, art in its many forms, and the hauntology of Jacques Derrida. Exposure is explored primarily as exposure to the elemental weather (with culture serving as a lean-to); exposure in a photographic sense; being over-exposed to light; exposure to the certitude of death; and being exposed to all the possibilities of the world. Exposure, in sum, is a kind of necessary, dangerous, and affirmative openness.

Scholars, students, and professional associations in philosophy (especially of the work of Derrida, Husserl, Heidegger, and Kant), literature, painting, cinema, new media, psychoanalysis, modernity, theories of the university, and interdisciplinary studies.
