A quelles conditions peut-on parler de négation dans l’image?

Jean-Marie Klinkenberg


What is negation? I mean: what is a negation in general? The question needs to be analyzed to apply with pertinence the concept to the image since the negation by the image has not received a stable and shared definition. What does this concept mean? Under what conditions can it be used to process visual semiotics guarding against confusion? This first issue is backed by another: the negation appears to be related to predication, to the point that some believe that the second is condition of the first. Therefore, we must also ask whether the image can predicate.


Semiotics; Image; Negation; Predication.
