Aesthetics of the Virtual (SUNY series in Contemporary Italian Philosophy)

Roberto Diodato


Reconfigures vintage aesthetic ideas with regards to the newness brought via digital bodies.

Arguing that the digital physique is anything new—namely, an entity that from an ontological viewpoint has just recently entered the world—Roberto Diodato considers the implications of this type of physique for aesthetics. digital our bodies insert themselves into the gap unfolded via the well-known contrast in Aristotle’s Physics among average and synthetic beings—they are either. they're beings which are concurrently occasions; they're photographs which are straight away inner and exterior; they're ontological hybrids that exist basically within the interplay among logical-computational textual content and human our bodies endowed with technological prostheses. Pursuing this line of inspiration, Diodato reconfigures vintage aesthetic innovations equivalent to mimesis, illustration, the relation among phantasm and truth, the character of pictures and mind's eye, and the speculation of sensory wisdom.
