Giving examples. What has it changed in the aesthetics of the last thirty years? In the last thirty years we have witnessed a progressive expansion of interdisciplinarity and of “postdisciplinary disciplines” like visual (culture) studies. This paper claims that this expansion relies mostly on a classificatory way of thinking, as opposed to an “exemplary” approach to historical, cultural, or artistic phenomena. It is maintained that working through “examples” is the most fruitful and adequate way of thinking in aesthetics and philosophy, both from a theoretical, and a political point of view.

Abstract

Giving examples. What has it changed in the aesthetics of the last thirty years? In the last thirty years we have witnessed a progressive expansion of interdisciplinarity and of “postdisciplinary disciplines” like visual (culture) studies. This paper claims that this expansion relies mostly on a classificatory way of thinking, as opposed to an “exemplary” approach to historical, cultural, or artistic phenomena. It is maintained that working through “examples” is the most fruitful and adequate way of thinking in aesthetics and philosophy, both from a theoretical, and a political point of view.
