Replications: Archaeology, Art History, Psychoanalysis (Penn State St. in Romance Literatures) Paperback – November 1, 1996
Arguing like an analytic philosopher with the skill of a well-trained art historian, Whitney Davis combines the rigorous erudition of a classical scholar with an absolutely contemporary sensibility. Ferociously intelligent, he focuses on fundamental conceptual issues. Art historians, philosophers of art, and cultural historians will want to read this book with as much close attention as it devotes to the texts and images Davis discusses. --David Carrier
From the Back Cover
The twelve interdisciplinary essays collected here explore what Whitney Davis calls 'replication' in archaeology, art history, and psychoanalysis - the sequential production of similar artifacts or images substitutable for one another in specific contexts of use. This book explores not only the differences between but also the common ground shared by archaeology, art history, and psychoanalysis.
