Heidegger, Adorno, Benjamin, Merleau-Ponty, Lyotard, Sartre, Foucault, Blanchot, Derrida, and Marion are one of the philosophers who've engaged with Klee's artwork and writings. Their perspectives are usually regarded as far away from one another, yet Watson places them in dialog. His element isn't really to vindicate any ultimate interpretation of Klee yet to permit his interpreters' diversified bills to engage, to make clear their and on Klee's paintings, and, in flip, to delineate either a background and a theoretical frustrating of their midst. Crescent Moon over the Rational unearths an evolving theoretical constellation of interpretations and their questions (theoretical, creative, and political) that deal with and continuously renew Klee's wealthy legacies.
