The three ages of the image

Miguel A. Hernández Navarro


The three eras of image is the intelectual will of José Luis Brea, one of the most singular, subtle and lucid voices of contemporary thinking. Written in a fair and balanced style, this text accounts for the particular attention to language –not just to the ’what’, but specifically to the ’how’ -that distinguished Brea’s critical project. This concern brings him closer to literature, and lets us state that he was, above all, a ’writer’, since writing was not, for him, just a transparent mean for sharing knowledge, but a place where what wants to be said can be in-corporated. Brea is, in this sense, an “inhabitant of language” who, to use Roland Barthes’ expression, radically transforms the reason of things into how to write them”.
