Forma e immagine: una lettura critica

Rivista di Estetica 69:124-130 (2018)

Filippo Contesi
Universitat de Barcelona
In a recent book, Immagine, Alberto Voltolini offers a rich and carefully written discussion of theories of depiction, which have drawn so much attention in recent Anglophone philosophy. Although Voltolini’s book has indisputable virtues, it also makes some questionable formal choices. The present essay presents a formal analysis of the book.
