Description

The writings of the Weimar philosopher and critic Walter Benjamin continue to provoke controversy in the fields of philosophy, critical theory and cultural history. In this reinterpretation, the author argues that all of Benjamin's work is characterized by its focus on a concept of experience derived from Kant but applied by Benjamin to objects as diverse as urban experience, visual art, literature and philosophy. The book analyzes the development of Benjamin's concept of experience in his early writings showing that it emerges from an engagement with visual experience, and in particular the experience of colour. By representing Benjamin as primarily a thinker of the visual field, the author brings forward previously neglected texts on inscription and the visual field and aims to cast many of his more familiar texts, for instance the "Work of Art in an Age of Mechanical Reproduction" in a new light.
