The curious procedure which a reading of Checkmate entails bears a certain resemblance to the progressive reductions of Edmund Husserl’s phenomenology by which the entire world of nature, history and empirical fact is eliminated from an increasingly pure contemplation. If this sounds pompous one should recognise something very similar in V. S. Pritchett

Liberalism and liberalisation in the niche of nature, culture, and technology

-way, triangulated, or even multilateral nature of exchange when cultures come in contact. When we turn to cultural translation of specific works we are no longer engaged in literary appreciation, which focuses on the ontology of the masterpiece, the way that the masterpiece unfolds creatively and fits together as a whole or gestalt . Rather, we are looking at the phenomenology of a work’s circulation, including the structure of the field of transnational cultural exchanges, political or economic constraints that influence the

Towards the making of The Mysteries of Udolpho
Robert Miles

’s two quotations as its epigraphs. Her argument, essentially, is that the increased cultural practice of aisthesis at the end of eighteenth century reflects a larger shift in consciousness. ‘Udolpho was more than simply fashionable; it encapsulated new structures of feeling, a new model of human relations, a new phenomenology of self and other’ (Castle 1987 : 236-7). Castle is particularly struck with the ‘uncanny

Shape-shifting and subjectivity

‘extensive contemporary literature’ in the humanities that focuses ‘objectively (but sometimes superficially) on “the body”‘. 1 By this, Sobchack is referring to the way the body is often thought about in an abstracted fashion, that which always belongs to someone else other than me. Counter to this, Sobchack draws on phenomenology to focus on the lived body, that is, on ‘what it means to be “embodied

possibility of an end to violence can only be stated through discourse, that is through violence (just as respect for the other – ethics – entails a phenomenology of otherness which necessarily leads straight back to the heart of the problem (p. 121)). To ‘overlook the irreducibility of this last violence’, the irrevocable conflicts of the discursive formation in which same and other

, which are still charged with Islamic and Christian homophobia, he cannot help signalling his characters’ lingering stumbling blocks with regard to forming viable same-sex relationships. Crucially, the relationship between Francesco and Mehmet is carefully kept under wraps, and only Marta knows about their erotic liaison because of her nocturnal visit to the Turkish bath. In the film, family life is visually organised around the dining table. In her study on queer phenomenology, Sara Ahmed ponders, ‘[t]‌he dining table is a table around which a “we” gathers. […] The

and experienced a novelist than a filmmaker at depicting her characters’ sensations and interactions, in ways that chime with Sara Ahmed’s consideration of queer phenomenology. Ahmed surmises: We are turned towards things. […] We perceive them insofar as they are near to us, insofar as we share a residence with them. Perception hence involves orientation; what is perceived depends on where we are located, which gives us a certain take on things. (Ahmed, 2006 , p. 27) Location and
