Book Description

Review 'Drawing on recent research in neurobiology and cognitive psychology as well as her own thinking about currently prevalent topics in cinema studies and film-philosophy, [Pisters] builds a case for the neuro-image that is usually persuasive and sometimes dazzling . . . I recommend The Neuro-Image to everyone interested in Deleuzian film theory . . . I commend her intellectual derring-do in expanding the Deleuzian dyad of movement-image and time-image with an innovative new meta-image paradigm. Its grounding in the particularities of twenty-first-century screen practice makes it a timely intervention, and I suspect that Deleuze would have welcomed it.'?David Sterritt, New Review of Film and Television Studies'[A] magisterial work . . . Like all books worth reading, Pisters's work on the neuro-image raises more questions than it answers.'?Claire Colebrook, Deleuze Studies'This outstanding work of scholarship makes a major contribution to the field of film studies and to the understanding of the work of Gilles Deleuze. The Neuro-Image extends Deleuze's questions and concerns by thinking through recent developments in film and moving-images culture and succeeds magnificently in mobilizing Deleuze's ideas in order to discover something new.'?Steven Shaviro, Wayne State University Read more About the Author Patricia Pisters is Professor of Media Culture and Film Studies and Chair of Media Studies at the University of Amsterdam.
