Introduction à l'esthétique

Nakai Masakazu - Introduction à l\'esthétique
The first translation into French of a work by the Japanese philosopher, this book, based on photography and cinema, in dialogue with Cassirer, Heidegger, Marx and the authors of the Frankfurt School, proposes an aesthetic of resistance and rebound that is inseparable from the body and the struggles it involves.
Masakazu Nakai (Nakai Masakazu or Nakai Shōichi, 1900-1952) is a Japanese philosopher, specialist in aesthetics and new media. His work deeply marked the counter-culture movements of the 1960s.
