From the Back Cover:

Objects, according to the anthropological adage, are good tothink with. But just what kind of thinking is it that objectsenable—or constrain? Are some objects made“cleverer” than others simply through their manufactureor embodied virtuosity? And how might attention to such inherentcleverness enable one to reconsider the aesthetic objectsprivileged by historians of art?

The Clever Object presents a multidisciplinaryexploration of the ways objects materialise, embody, or negotiatevarious forms of intelligence. Experts from the fields ofanthropology, philosophy of science, design history and artisticpractice offer rich insights into objects that frustrateconventional modes of narration while seeming to guide—evenentrap—the subjects who make, behold, and interpret them.Original and thought-provoking, The Clever Object defines,explores, and expands the category of “the cleverobject” as an analytic tool of art-historical interpretationfor the twenty-first century.
