journal update

Andrew Inkpin’s review of a new book by Jorella Andrews for the JBSP, online in advance of the paper edition.

Andrew Inkpin – Book Review: ‘The Question of Painting. Rethinking Thought with Merleau-Ponty by Jorella Andrews’ [London, Bloomsbury, 2019]. (Review originally published online: 11 October 2020).

Opening: Although it was never the central focus of his philosophical interests, Merleau-Ponty is one of few philosophers to conceive painting as having an exemplary role not merely as a form of art but more generally as an embodied cognitive practice. The Question of Painting by Jorella Andrews takes up this aspect of Merleau-Ponty’s work, eliciting a distinctive conception of thought that is applied to both past and contemporary artistic practice.
