Force and Image from Kant to Benjamin
This chapter lays out the origins of Walter Benjamin's theory of the force of images in Kant's philosophy, in particular the Critique of the Power of Judgment and the second edition of the Critique of Pure Reason. It examines the influence of this theory throughout Benjamin's work: from his early essay on Friedrich HÖlderlin to his late Arcades Project.
