Theory for Art History free pdf For students and professors of art history and visual culture, this second volume in Routledge's "theory4" series is a valuable and concise introduction to the intersection between critical theory and art history. Beginning with precursor figures such as Sigmund Freud and Karl Marx, Jae Emerling goes on to focus on the major cultural theorists of the twentieth and twenty-first century with a sharp focus on questions concerning aesthetics. Devoting a chapter to each key figure, the text introduces each thinker's system of thought, situates them both historically and conceptually, and encourages the reader to turn to primary the primary texts. Figures included among many others are: Walter Benjamin- Gilles Deleuze- Jacques Derrida- Alain Badiou-and Giorgia Agamben. The intersection between critical theory and art history is contentious. In imaginative and critical ways, "Theory for Art History "argues that the discipline and practice of art history only gains from a fuller knowledge of critical theory.
