Karael, Burcu
In this thesis, I investigate the linguistic dimension of plastic artworks focusing on their names. My analysis of names follows Ludwig Wittgenstein’s arguments in his books Tractatus Logico Philosopicus and Philosophical Investigations; and Martin Heidegger’s views on work of art and world play a complementary role. The “tension” between the image and the word is the main focus throughout this study.
