Eyal Peretz works at the intersection of literary theory, philosophy, psychoanalysis and film studies. His work is an attempt to redraw the relations between philosophy and the arts by examining various ways in which works of art and philosophical texts enter into a new type of dialogue in the age that has been defined as post enlightenment. 

Area of expertise:

  • Comparative Literature

My main interest is thinking in a new way the relations between philosophy and the arts, and more precisely between the philosophical understanding of what meaning or sense is, that is, what can be called the philosophical logic of sense, and the way that literature and the other arts have understood meaning, or the artistic understanding of a logic of sense.
