Chapter Summary

This front matter section of this book The Anthropomorphic Lens: Anthropomorphism, Microcosmism and Analogy in Early Modern Thought and Visual Arts contains the table of contents, a list of illustrations, and notes on the editors and contributors. The book deals with the basic semiotic problems raised by figuration as a cultural practice. It discusses two large prints of whales beached in the vicinity of Haarlem between 1598 and 1601. These prints allow him to investigate when and why certain types of image seemingly ripe for viewing through an anthropomorphic lens, instead proved resistant to such a reading.

Keywords: anthropomorphic lens; cultural practice
