!Read E-pub ⚟ Camera Obscura: Of Ideology ⚟ Marx, Freud, Nietzsche in vastly different ways all three employed the metaphor of the camera obscura in their work In this classic book at last available in an English translation the distinguished French philosopher Sarah Kofman offers an extended reflection on this metaphor She contrasts the mechanical function of the camera obscura as a kind of copy machine, rendering a mirror image of the work, with its use in the writings of master thinkersIn her opening chapter on Marx, Kofman provides a reading of inversion as necessary to the ideological process She then explores the metaphor of the camera obscura in Freud s description of the unconscious For Nietzsche the camera obscura is a metaphor for forgetting Kofman asks here whether the magical apparatus of the camera obscura, rather than bringing about clarity, serves some thinkers as fetish Camera Obscura is a powerful discussion of a metaphor that dominates contemporary theory from philosophy to film Nicole Fermon, Fordham University Please Goodreads, correct the title Camera Obscura of IdeologyIt s an extraordinary book for those who want to think about contemporary photography and the way that the camera image works, what it means, all that is behind our assumptions of photography It is particularly valuable to be read somewhere between Crary s Techniques of the Observer and Barthes Camera Lucida Not for the faint hearted, or those looking for easy answers to difficult questions Kofman has condensed her thoughts Please Goodreads, correct the title Camera Obscura of IdeologyIt s an extraordinary book for those who want to think about contemporary photography and the way that the camera image works, what it means, all that is behind our assumptions of photography It is particularly valuable to be read somewhere between Crary s Techniques of the Observer and Barthes Camera Lucida Not for the faint hearted, or those looking for easy answers to difficult questions Kofman has condensed her thoughts into a small essay The section on Nietzsche and the Painter s Chamber is possibly the finest There is muchhere than simply the idea of the camera as a metaphor for forgetting her contribution to the discussion of fetishism is superb Sarah Kofman nos ofrece un an lisis exquisito de c mo ha sido tomada la met fora de la c mara oscura en Marx, Freud, Nietzsche y Descartes La noci n de inversi n que est m quina produce sirve para muchas interpretaciones, y bueno, tambi n confusiones Lo que propone que cada idea anteriormente planteada se replantee y nos ofrezca algo nuevo El conocer la verdad, o la realidad, ha sido siempre un dilema, lo que nos toca ahora, es decidir en qu creer, si decimos creer en algo, claro. she s obviously an extremely intelligent person, but these essays are linked together by the thin thread of one image that seem tenuous at best my failure in reading this may have emerged from focusing too heavily on her reading of marx when people seem to be suggesting her reading of nietzsche was the strongest of the essays ultimately, I do not feel that my understanding of ideology has been enhanced in any meaningful way by her wrangling with a single metaphor
