Someone like Benjamin occupies a marginal position in much philosophy. So it’s not surprising that the historical link here hasn’t been developed much. But on the other hand, there is a veritable industry of expression scholarship at the moment (mostly centered on Merleau-Ponty), so I’m not sure I’d say the concept is “under-investigated”. Anyway, quibbles with such hype aside, this looks really good. Not that I can go. But I’d like to, you know.
