  • Aesthetic Essaysby Malcolm Budd

    OUP Oxford 2008; US$ 36.99

    Malcolm Budd presents a selection of his work in aesthetics. Some essays deal with the abstract heart of aesthetics: issues such as the nature and scope of the aesthetic, the validity of aesthetic judgements, realism and anti-realism, pleasure and value, and the aim of art. Others focus on specific art forms: music and pictorial representation. more...

  • The Apprehension of Beautyby Donald Meltzer; Meg Harris Williams

    Harris Meltzer Trust 2008; US$ 25.99

    This volume has grown over the years as a family project of Martha Harris, her two daughters Meg and Morag and her husband, Donald Meltzer.

  • Rhetoric Of The Unselfconscious In D H Lby Masami Nakabayashi

    UPA 2011; US$ 34.99

    In this study of the Lady Chatterley novels, Masami Nakabayashi pays particular attention to D.H. Lawrence's language for the feelings and for the life of the unselfconscious, sexual body. The novels constantly find ways of verbalising the characters' internalised experiences as they occur in states of unselfconsciousness. Lawrence's language for sensual... more...

  • Nelson Goodman and the Case for a Kalological Aestheticsby Dr Nikolaos Gkogkas; Professor T. J. Diffey

    Palgrave Macmillan 2008; US$ 105.00

    Based on Nelson Goodman's conception of language and of pragmatically inherited meaning, this book looks at the arts as systems of particular symbols. The author offers an approach to kalology as a metaphysical implication of symbological functioning. more...

  • Sensibility and Senseby Arnold Berleant

    Andrews UK 2011; US$ 20.99

    Aesthetic sensibility rests on perceptual experience and characterizes not only our experience of the arts but our experience of the world.

Extending the range... more...

  • Theorien der Avantgardeby Christine Magerski

    VS Verlag für Sozialwissenschaften 2011; US$ 9.40

    Nicht ohne Häme bemerkte Arnold Gehlen 1966, dass es einmal eine wissenschaftliche Kunstlehre als wesentlichen Bestandteil der Philosophie gegeben habe, die als Ästhetik für Phänomene wie den Avantgardismus zuständig gewesen sei. Doch scheinen diese Bemühungen eingestellt, was Gehlen zum Anlass nimmt, den Avantgardismus aus der Perspektive der Soziologie... more...

    OUP Oxford 2011; US$ 38.99

    De Gruyter 2012; US$ 182.00

    Leben und Werk Ernst Jüngers (1895?1998) provozieren bis heute. Jede Generation scheint sich aufs Neue an seinen Texten zum Ersten Weltkrieg abarbeiten zu müssen. Trotzdem liegt der zweite Lebensabschnitt Jüngers, die Jahre in der Bundesrepublik, in der diese Auseinandersetzungen geführt werden, noch immer weitgehend im Dunkeln. Der Band... more...
