"Tabula constituens". La rappresentazione tra appropriazione cartografica e geometria politica

  • Abstract

Informations and abstract


This essay retraces the political function of maps by stressing its symbolical relevance and the philosophical meaning of the history of cartography, beyond the practical and military uses of maps. From the medieval "mappae mundi" to the modern geographic projections, there is a discursive universe which has its focus in the political representation and in the concept of image. Heidegger's analysis of the world as "image" is the most important outcome of this centuries-old process.
