Images are culturally, philosophically and historically developed. The purpose of this book is to offer conceptual frameworks for thinking about images through a range of issues which have arisen out of intense specul-ation on the different meanings connected with images. It is first and foremost a book about the questions, and ideas that the continuing significance of images in con-temporary reality has given rise to. The scientific, philosophical, and historical con-texts of the images are also examined. This book is intended to all scholars and students of media.
