    2. Please , correct the title Camera Obscura of IdeologyIt s an extraordinary book for those who want to think about contemporary photography and the way that the camera image works, what it means, all that is behind our assumptions of photography It is particularly valuable to be read somewhere between Crary s Techniques of the Observer and Barthes Camera Lucida Not for the faint hearted, or those looking for easy answers to difficult questions Kofman has condensed her thoughts into a small essay [...]

    3. I know little about Sarah Kofman as a thinker other than that she was supposed to be important The Internet is rather unhelpful in this regard, which I find annoying The text itself is mostly just meditation on a single obscure metaphor as it s found in Marx, Freud, and Nietzsche three important thinkers to say the least, but rather than mining the best from these three Kofman just kind of riffs, and then fills half this slender volume with footnotes And of the 50 or so pages where she s actuall [...]
