Abstract

The distinction between the terms Form and Gestalt and that between Vorstellung and Darstellung, as they are functions of representation, refers to the difficulty in representing the continuum in its differential relation to the points it is composed of. The reference to infinitesimal calculus and the possibility to render time oscillation by means of spatial figuration accounts for the role of art in the configuration of reality, while the occurrences of the terms Form and Figur, and those of Vorstellung and Darstellung in Ernst Cassirer’s and Paul Klee’s thought account for their complementarity.
