Stefan Andriopoulos’ New Book, Gespenster: Kant, der Schauerroman und optische Medien

October 2, 2018 – Topics of Interest

Drawing together literature, media, and philosophy,Gespenster: Kant, der Schauerroman und optische Medien traces connections between Kant’s philosophy, spiritualist theories, and the use of the magic lantern in spectral projections. At the same time Andriopoulos also explores the proliferation of ghosts in the contemporaneous Gothic novel and anxieties about “reading addiction” and the rise of popular print media.  Gespenster was recently reviewed in Philosophie Magazin; a pdf of the article is available here.
