  • Arts and Mindsby Gregory Currie

    Clarendon Press 2004; US$ 59.99

    Gregory Currie presents a selection of his essays in an area to which he has been a leading contributor: philosophical aesthetics and its interface with cognitive science. He shows that philosophical questions about the arts go naturally with other kinds of questions about them. He offers illuminating discussions of such topics as meaning, interpretation,... more...

  • Artworld Metaphysicsby Robert Kraut

    Oxford University Press 2007; US$ 34.99

    Artworld Metaphysics turns a critical eye upon aspects of the artworld, and articulates some of the problems, principles, and norms implicit in the actual practices of artistic creation, interpretation, evaluation, and commodification. Aesthetic theory is treated as descriptive and explanatory, rather than normative: a theory that relates to artworld... more...

  • The Apprehension of Beautyby Donald Meltzer; Meg Harris Williams

    Harris Meltzer Trust 2008; US$ 26.95

    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. It therefore has its roots in English literature and its branches waving wildly about in Psycho-analysis. It is earnestly hoped that it will reveal more problems than it will solve. more...

  • Rhetoric Of The Unselfconscious In D H Lby Masami Nakabayashi

    University Press of America 2011; US$ 32.99

    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$ 100.00

    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...

  • The Aesthetic Mindby Elisabeth Schellekens; Peter Goldie

    Oxford University Press 2011; US$ 270.00

    The Aesthetic Mind breaks new ground in bringing together empirical sciences and philosophy to enhance our understanding of aesthetics and the experience of art. An eminent international team of experts presents new research in philosophy, psychology, neuroscience, and social anthropology: they explore the roles of emotion, imagination, empathy, and... more...

  • Ernst Jünger und die Bundesrepublikby Ingo Stöckmann; Matthias Schöning

    De Gruyter 2011; US$ 154.00

    Even today Ernst Jünger (1895?1998) still continues to provoke debate. However, the source of this provocation is mainly his militant early work, whereas the civilian years of the Federal Republic have generally remained obscure. The contributions of this book focus exclusively on Jünger?s writings from the time after 1945 and explore their interrelationship... more...

  • Landscape, Natural Beauty and the Artsby Salim Kemal; Ivan Gaskell

    Cambridge University Press 1993; US$ 37.00

  • Sinnlichkeit und Verstandby Konrad Vorderobermeier

    De Gruyter 2012; US$ 168.00

    For Kant, sensibility and reason are the two cornerstones for all knowledge that is possible for us. The question of their mediation has occupied Kant researchers ever since the publication of the Critique of Pure Reason. By analyzing the most important theoretical elements of the critique of reason, the author offers a new approach for evaluating... more...

  • The Aesthetics of Everyday Lifeby Andrew Light; Jonathan Smith
