Toward a “Nonprosaic” Conception of Consciousness

(p.59) 3 Of Sartre, Klee, Surrealism, and Philosophy
Crescent Moon over the Rational
Stanford University Press

This chapter, which examines Jean-Paul Satre's reading of the works of Paul Klee in the context of surrealism and conception of consciousness, highlights Sarte's criticisms on the surrealists influenced by Klee and explains that he found the same “error” that he had found in Klee. It argues that Klee's links with surrealism were immediate and far-reaching, and that from the start he sought a fusion between the architectonic and the poetic in his art and writings.

Keywords:   Paul Klee, Jean-Paul Sartre, surrealism, consciousness, architectonic, poetic, art, writings
