Description - Thoughts and Things by Leo Bersani
Leo Bersani's career spans more than fifty years and extends across a wide spectrum of fields?including French studies, modernism, realist fiction, psychoanalytic criticism, film studies, and queer theory. ?Throughout this new collection of essays that ranges, interestingly and brilliantly, from movies by Claire Denis and Jean-Luc Godard to fiction by Proust and Pierre Bergounioux, Bersani considers various kinds of connectedness.
Thoughts and Things?posits what would appear to be an irreducible gap between our thoughts (the human subject) and things (the world). Bersani departs from his psychoanalytic convictions to speculate on the oneness of being?of our intrinsic connectedness to the other that is at once external and internal to us.? He addresses the problem of formulating ways to consider the undivided mind, drawing on various sources, from Descartes to cosmology, Freud, and Genet and succeeds brilliantly in diagramming new forms as well as radical failures of connectedness. Ambitious, original, and eloquent,?Thoughts and Things?will be of interest to scholars in philosophy, film, literature, and beyond.
