This is one of the urgent tasks of critical self-reflection. We need, in other words, to engage in a radical re-thinking of the constitutive grounds of the thanatonic age. Of course it is possible that most, if not all, societies have been shaped by symbolic displays and conspicuous spectacles as a collective means of establishing public order and normative identity. Visuality is clearly not an invention of modernity. Some of the oldest works of European culture – the Epic of Gilgamesh, the Iliad, Odyssey, Oresteia and Bible among these – are visual epics.

While a final assessment of these claims must await the evidence of detailed comparative historical and sociological research, in what follows I will pursue the hypothesis that while visual experience appears to be a natural order, upon further reflection it turns out to be a highly complex and culturally variable socio-historical formation.
