With texts drawn from a diverse selection of contributors from many different disciplines, this latest issue of the "Journal of Philosophy and the Visual Arts" centres on the philosophical reconsideration of space in regard to painting and architecture and particularly gender. Included are aphorisms by Jeffrey Kipnis, an exploration into the loss of power articulated in architectural theory, history and practice by Catherine Ingraham; visions of architecture by John Jedjuk; feminist theories of space by Christina Battersby; the relationship between catastrophe theories and Futurist painting by Sanford Quinter; notions of identity and subjectivity by artist Heln Chadwick and a study of Clement Greenberg by Peter Osborne. Featured extensively are projects by innovative young architects Diller and Scofidio and Dagmar Richter which demonstrate a creative confrontation between architecture and philosophy. "The Journal of Philosophy and the Visual Arts" explores the various ways in which art and architecture are coming to play an increasingly significant role within philosophy and those fields or areas of study stimulated by, or responding to, its recent developments. With influential essays by internationally known architects, artists, philosophers, the journal provides an important source of information about the rethinking and reformulation of the specific projects affecting these disciplines.
