Images: A Reader free pdf 'This is just what visual studies needs: a sober, analytic, parsimonious selection of crucial texts' - James Elkins, Department of Art History, Theory, and Criticism School of the Art Institute of Chicago 'The sheer breadth of this collection - from Genesis to Hockney and Plato to Lacan- shows how much images have always been a part of our culture. This volume makes a welcome contribution to our (re)discovery of the visual in society and how much we stand to learn from it, past and present' - Richard Howells, King's College, London 'There are many fine anthologies on visual culture, yet none that offer such a concise and comprehensive array of the theoretical perspectives defining this interdisciplinary field' - Robert Hariman, Northwestern University 'An indispensible resource for image analysis. The best thing I have seen in this field by a long way' - Valerie Walkerdine, Professor of Psychology, School of Social Sciences, Cardiff University If contemporary culture is an image culture, how should we understand and analyse the vast range of images among which we live? Images: A Reader provides a key resource for students, academics, practitioners and other readers engaged in the critical, theoretical and practical study of images. The Reader is concerned with the notion of the 'image' in all its theoretical, critical and practical contexts, uses and history. The Reader provides a map of the differences and similarities between the various disciplinary approaches to images, breaking the ground for a new interdisciplinary study of images, in the arts and humanities and beyond. Images: A Reader is divided into three parts: " Historical and Philosophical Precedents sets the background for contemporary debates about images. " Theories of Images provides key texts of the major approaches through which images are conceptualised. " Image Culture introduces some of the more recent debates about images and today's visual environment. The selection of over 80 key readings, across the domains of philosophy, art, literature, science, critical theory and cultural studies tells the story of images through intellectual history from the Bible to the present. By including both well-established writings and more recent, innovative research, the Reader outlines crucial developments in contemporary discourses about images.
