The Madness of Vision
On Baroque Aesthetics
By Christine Buci-Glucksmann
· Translation by Dorothy Z. Baker

In The Madness of Vision, Buci-Glucksmann asserts the important of embodied vision in nine studies of paintings, sculptures, and images. She integrates the work of Merleau-Ponty with Lacanian psychoanalysis, Renaissance studies in optics, and twentieth-century mathematics to make the case for the pervasive influence of the baroque.
