KRITIKE METAPORIKA DENKBILDDenkbild is a German word that means "image of thought" or "image of reflection." The term was used by Walter Benjamin to refer to a style of writing that defies the traditional systemic prose. An image of thought is a kind of moving reflection that is almost immediate, yet profoundly emphatic—akin to the brushstroke of a painter. A Denkbild is a textual performance that, while eluding a fixed linguistic expression, could be a source of critical insight. In this context, we are using Denkbild as a metaphor to describe contributions which escape the formal style of most academic essays (e.g., philosophical aphorisms, poems, transcripts, interviews, and short philosophical novels).To submit to the Metaporika Denkbild section, please visit the Submissions page.
