    Both Theodor Adorno and Walter Benjamin borrow from Freudian theory in their analyses of fetishism’s relation to the contemporary reception of cultural prod- ucts. I will argue that both authors have con- fused the Marxian and Freudian theories of fetishism, resulting in mistaken conclusions about artistic reception. Walter Isaacson’s Leonardo da Vinci is one of the best books I have read in a very long time. It is a page-long biography which I read in a hardcover version so heavy it could probably shatter some bones if I dropped it on my foot/5(K).

    Description: 'Benjamin's Arcades' is an innovative text for students and specialists on the intellectual and political context of Walter Benjamin's unfinished masterpiece, 'The Arcades Project'. It includes a special 'convoluted index' to aid the reader in discovering recurrent themes and ideas, both in the book itself and Benjamin's methods. That is why I think of my book as a philosophical portrait of Benjamin, as gathering his corpus of writings so that it can be recognized as a configuration of philosophy. 3:AM: Your new book is a reading of the philosophical preoccupations of Walter Benjamin and his Arcades Project.
