A detailed and inventive study of the thinking at work in modern painting, drawing on a formidable body of scholarly evidence to challenge modernist and phenomenological readings of art history, The Brain-Eye presents a series of interlinked 'case studies' in which philosophical thought encounters the hallucinatory sensations unleashed by 'painter-researchers.' Rather than outlining a new 'philosophy of art,' The Brain-Eye details the singular problems pursued by each of its protagonists. Striking readings of the oeuvres of Delacroix, Seurat, Manet, Gauguin, and Cezanne recount the plural histories of artists who worked to free the differential forces of colour, discovered by Goethe in his Colour Theory, in the name of a "true hallucination" and of a logic proper to the Visual. A rigorous renewal of the philosophical thinking of visual art, The Brain-Eye explores the complex relations between concept and sensation, theory and practice, the discursive and the visual, and draws out the political and philosophical stakes of the aesthetic revolution in modern painting.

Review:

This amazingly erudite, visually sensitive, and philosophically innovative, post-phenomenological study offers multiple, rich perspectives on thinking in and through painting, as it interrogates five paradigmatic pathbreaking artists from Delacroix to Cezanne. Deploying innovative concepts of hallucination and the brain-eye, Alliez convincingly revises our thinking about color, atmosphere, diagram, seriality, and artists' ways of working. -- Gary Shapiro, Tucker-Boatwright Professor in the Humanities-Philosophy, University of Richmond Eric Alliez proposes a consummately erudite journey through modern painting, asking at each step of the way one crucial question: how does painting think? Not: how can we think the painting as a visual object? But rather: what force of thought moves through painting itself to constitute the visual, anterior to the objectivity of the painting as to the subjectivity of the viewer? The answer is kaleidoscopic: an adventure in philosophy through the vicissitudes of color. A major contribution to philosophy in its relation to art history and visual studies. --Brian Massumi, Professor of Critical Empiricism, The European Graduate School

Book Description Rowman & Littlefield International. Paperback. Condition: New. 512 pages. The Brain-Eye is a work of speculative philosophy based on meticulous art-historical research, offering a new perspective on critical problems of modern aesthetics and the very meaning of aesthetics for modernity. The book seeks to address the thinking that is at work within the practice of painting itself, detailing a series of largely unexplored negotiations between this non-discursive thinking, philosophy and science, which give rise to radical modern modes of creating and viewing images. The authors present a model for thinking and writing about art which is neither purely phenomenological nor reductive in relation to that context. The book uncovers an untold story of modernity going beyond philosophy of art to explore the ways in which the destinies of modern philosophy and art have been closely intertwined. The Brain-Eye essentially develops a Deleuzian philosophical perspective on the question of the image, but its arguments reach far beyond Deleuzes own work. The book addresses in direct and crucial ways the post-conceptual condition of contemporary art and provides a new set of philosophically sophisticated tools with which to navigate questions of the aesthetic and the modern.
