內容簡介

來自獲獎小說家Siri Hustvedt迷人、激進、豐富探索 (《紐約時報書評》)又
深具洞見(《浮華世界》)的散文集,論及藝術、女權主義、神經科學、心理學與哲學。

在這本三部曲合集中,作者展現了她在人文與科學領域既深又廣的知識,不斷地以她對各學科充滿熱情的好奇心、幽默感與洞見,挑戰既有的概念與文化常談。

本書不僅檢視特別的藝術作品,也探討人類的感知,包括影響我們評判文學,藝術與世界的偏見。她在書中討論了藝術家畢卡索,攝影師Robert Mapplethorpe與特立獨行的評論家蘇珊.宋塔(Susan Sontag)等人,在〈對確切的錯覺〉這篇文章中,她揭露了老年與未能解決的身心問題如何形塑並且常常扭曲與困惑著當代在神經科學,心理治療,遺傳學,人工智慧與演化心理學的思維。她在〈我們是什麼?人類景況的講課集〉中,探討齊克果、自殺以及對歇斯底里、聯覺、回憶與空間的神祕感做了深入的反思,還有小說在哲學上的矛盾。


Internationally acclaimed as a novelist, Siri Hustvedt is also highly regarded as a writer of non-fiction whose insights are drawn from her broad knowledge in the arts, humanities, and sciences.

In this trilogy of works collected in a single volume, Hustvedt brings a feminist, interdisciplinary perspective to a range of subjects. Louise Bourgeois, Pablo Picasso, Susan Sontag and Knut Ove Knausgaard are among those who come under her scrutiny. In the book's central essay, she explores the intractable mind-body problem and in the third section, reflects on the mysteries of hysteria, synesthesia, memory, perception, and the philosophy of Søren Kierkegaard. With clarity, wit, and passion, she exposes gender bias, upends received ideas, and challenges her reader to think again. Siri Hustvedt
