Of Jews And Animals, Hardback Book

Of Jews And Animals Hardback

Part of the The Frontiers of Theory series


By developing his own conception of the 'figure' Andrew Benjamin has written an innovative and provocative study of the complex relationship between philosophy, the history of painting and their presentation of both Jews and animals.

As Benjamin makes clear the 'Other' is never abstract.

He underscores the means by which the ethical imperative, arising from the way the history of philosophy and the history of art are constructed, shows us how to respond to an already identified, even if unacknowledged, determinant other.
