How can we represent the Other? How can the Other represent us? In this issue of the journal, we are looking at ways in which we may open to the Other in the arts, media and the arts therapies. Is art a vehicle for the expression of the self or does it necessarily imply transcendence toward otherness? What, if anything, is a self and how does it reach out to the Other, both the other person and the otherness of itself? Can poiesis be a basis for ethical practice or is there, as Kierkegaard thought, an insuperable gap between the aesthetic and the ethical?

Featuring articles on working with others, especially those considered radically different, through the arts, as well as articles on the political significance of the arts in Critical Theory:

“Asylums Rededicated: A Concrete Utopia,” “Anthropologists of the Mind,” “Conversations at the Edge of The Numinous,” “Encountering the Other-Self: Essential Forms and New Therapeutic Developments in Transitional Phenomena,” “Edith Turner: A Lifetime of Encountering the Other,” “Teaching Peace by Piece: Two Quilts One World,” “Contact Zone: The Ethics of Playing with “the Other”,” “Doing the Dishes, Aferim,” “Art as Counter-Thinking: Aesthetics and Revolution in the Critical Theory of the Frankfurt School,” “Sound as an Expression of Critique: Theodor W, Adorno’s Philosophy of Music,” “Art as the Experience of Alterity: Theodor W. Adorno’s Aesthetic Theory.”
