Editorial Reviews


"[A] highly compelling account of an important subject. . . . Bull is to be congratulated on presenting such a thought-provoking study . . . welcome addition to the study of early modern art and thought."--Alexander Marr, Apollo

"[T]antalizingly meaty."--Choice

"[A]rt historians and critics will find in it a fascinating account of how paintings can initiate and/or facilitate philosophical reflection."--Giorgio Baruchello, European Legacy

From the Inside Flap

"Bull is a scholar with a gift for traversing traditional disciplinary boundaries, and his book acknowledges, as has rarely been done before, the wide philosophical dimensions of artistic practice in the 'long seventeenth century.' Given its originality of focus, this synthesis helps reconceptualize the period in a new way."--Tom Nichols, University of Glasgow

"Malcolm Bull is an extraordinary writer--lucid, far reaching, and entirely original. His book explains how painting does not merely provide the subject for philosophical debate when we interpret, but also, quite by itself, manifests a form of philosophical thinking. In what way do the fantasies represented in art manifest a truthful way of thinking? This book offers the answer."--David Carrier, coauthor of Wild Art
