Chapter Summary

It is remarkable just how precisely Lu Xuns creation of Chinas first literary type fits within the much broader modern trajectory of images relation to the soul was to the emerging Marxist conception of human essence. The concept of the type is crucial in this process because, as Lacoue-Labarthe has shown in his analysis of Heidegger, it marks the site of a rescendent inversion of onto-theology into onto-typology. This chapter shows how this concept of the type and its relationship to literature and aesthetics becomes globalized. It also shows the global extent of this modern eidaesthetic concept of the type as it is arrayed in three texts, from Heidegger, Cai Yi and Walt Whitman. The chapter discusses the theory of types as it is developed in both the New Theory of Art and also in New Aesthetics.

Keywords: Cai Yi; Heidegger; Lu Xun; Marxist conception of human essence; New Aesthetics; New Theory of Art; onto-theology; onto-typology; Whitman
