Anonymous Photographs of the Past: A Petition Against Death?
CSF Publishing, Jan 14, 2012
ABOUT THE BOOK: Found in France and the United States, the photos in this book depict unknown scenes and people from the 19th century. Each day sends them further into the recesses of the past, all while bringing them closer to a possible identification. Although they remain anonymous for the moment, we would be mistaken to think that there is nothing else to be said about them. Indeed, these photographs can be mined for philosophically pertinent material from ontological, illustrative, and ethical points of view, as Pierre-Alexandre Fradet here demonstrates. ABOUT THE AUTHOR: Pierre-Alexandre Fradet is a graduate researcher and teaching assistant in philosophy at the University of Montreal, where he is supported in part by the SSHRC, the FQRSC, and the Fondation Desjardins. He writes regularly for cultural and philosophical journals such as Spirale, Symposium, and Laval Theologique et Philosophique. He is also a contributor to Sequences -- North America's longest standing francophone cinema magazine -- which he represented as a jurist at the Fantasia International Film Festival."
