The Center for Contemporary European Philosophy cordially invites you for a talk by Tina Chanter (Kingston): "Who is the peasant woman? Gender and old shoes: Heidegger, Van Gogh and Rancière" Heidegger’s critiques the essentially Aristotelian distinction between form and matter, recasting it in terms of the strife of world and earth. I elaborate Heidegger’s effort in ‘The Origin of the work of Art’ to overcome the pervasive influence of the form/matter distinction in aesthetic thinking, and suggest that his account marks an ultimately inadequately radical departure from the guiding distinction of matter and form, which he claims has been a hallmark of the metaphysical tradition of aesthetics that he sees as preceding him. I suggest that the form/matter distinction is embedded in a series of other problematic distinctions, which Heidegger does not manage to dislodge. Drawing on Rancière, amongst others, I show that Heidegger’s effort to overcome a metaphysical aesthetics remains ensconced in a further series of distinctions which themselves are in need of displacement and rethinking, not the least of which is the differentiation of feminine and masculine.

“Who is the peasant woman? Gender and old shoes: Heidegger, Van Gogh and Rancière”

Heidegger’s critiques the essentially Aristotelian distinction between form and matter, recasting it in terms of the strife of world and earth. I elaborate Heidegger’s effort in ‘The Origin of the work of Art’ to overcome the pervasive influence of the form/matter distinction in aesthetic thinking, and suggest that his account marks an ultimately inadequately radical departure from the guiding distinction of matter and form, which he claims has been a hallmark of the metaphysical tradition of aesthetics that he sees as preceding him. I suggest that the form/matter distinction is embedded in a series of other problematic distinctions, which Heidegger does not manage to dislodge.
