Senses of Landscape - Comparative and Continental Philosophy (Hardback)John Sallis (author)
- We can order this from the publisher
Senses of Landscape proffers three kinds of analyses, which, though distinct, continually intersect in the course of the book. The first consists of extended analyses of distinctive landscapes from four exemplary painters, Paul Cezanne, Caspar David Friedrich, Paul Klee, and Guo Xi. Sallis then turns to these art ists' own writings-treatises, essays, and letters-about art in general and landscape painting in particular, and he sets them into a philosophical context. The third kind of analysis draws both on Sallis's theoretical writings and on the canonical texts in the philosophy of art (Kant, Schelling, Hegel, and Heidegger). These analyses present for a wide audience a profound sense of landscape and of the earthly abode of the human.
