Review:

Jorge Gracia s book, Painting Borges, is a rather curious object, springing from an audacious intellectual challenge The outcome is a rich and vivid piece of writing and questioning. Notre Dame Philosophical Reviews

an engaging, thought-provoking treatise on the artistic interpretation of fiction from a philosophical perspective, a study that conjoins aesthetics and hermeneutics a book for all in every season Highly recommended. CHOICE

From Michel Foucault to Arthur Danto, the use of Borges to analyze art isn t new, but Painting Borges goes a step further: it looks at Borges as an inspiration to painters while also interpreting hermeneutically the way he himself looked at things through his blind eyes. I found Jorge J. E. Gracia s volume provocative, engaging, and exhaustive in its approach. Ilan Stavans, Lewis-Sebring Professor in Latin American and Latino Culture, Amherst College"
