Editorial Reviews

From the Publisher

"Düttmann's fine study is one of those rare books that combine the conceptual rigor of the philosopher with the aesthetic sensitivity of the artist in order to yield a text both highly illuminating and poetic in its own way. Visconti: Insights into Flesh and Blood is much more than a conventional study of a canonical Italian filmmaker: it is an original work situated at a level of analytical subtlety and sustained reflection that make it one of the most interesting books of aesthetic theory in recent years." —Gerhard Richter, University of California at Davis
