This is a deeply impressive book. Well-researched and argued, it proposes nothing less than a principle of motion/transition that operates prior to the object/subject-or phenomena/noumena-split... There are many highly original parts... For myself, however, the excursus is the most exciting and compelling part of this work. I am very taken with the image of the spiral, and, indeed, with the reading of Van Gogh's Starry Night... Indeed, there are parts here that are beautifully written, poetic, and grand. -- Simon O'Sullivan, PhD, senior lecturer, Department of Visual Cultures, University of London's Goldsmiths CollegeFrom the Publisher:
Erman Kaplama explores the principle of transition (Ubergang) from metaphysics to physics developed by Kant in his unfinished magnum opus, Opus Postumum. Drawing on the Heraclitean logos and Kant's notions of sense-intuition (Anschauung) and reflective judgment, Kaplama interprets transition as an aesthetic principle. He revises the idea of nature (phusis) as the principle of motion referring to Heraclitus' cosmology as well as Heidegger's and Nietzsche's lectures on the pre-Socratics. Kaplama compares the Kantian sublime and Nietzschean Dionysian as aesthetic theories representing the transition from the sensible to supersensible and as cosmological theories that consider human nature (ethos) as an extension of nature. In light of such Nietzschean notions as the eternal recurrence and will to power, the Dionysian is shown to trigger the transition by which nature and art are redefined. Finally, Cosmological Aesthetics employs the principles of transition and motion to analyze Van Gogh's Starry Night in an excursus.
