Reading Hegel's Silenus with the Infant Bacchus

Research output: Chapter in Book/Report/Conference proceedingChapter

Abstract

This chapter is part of a Festschrift published under the auspices of the Public Monuments and Sculpture Association (PMSA), in honour of the art historian Ben Read, who passed away in October 2017. The publication, Sculpting Art History, Essays in Memory of Benedict Read, is edited by Katharine Eustace FSA and former editor of the Sculpture Journal and Mark Stocker. The book is 472 pages long.

The essay/chapter addresses a statue 'Silenus with the Infant Bacchus' in the context of Hegel's Lectures on Fine Art. This includes a reading of the statue's function in the logic of Hegel's system alongside its historical and material specificity, the very plasticity that undoes the conceptual schema of the lectures.
