Aesthetics

  • "Einige werden posthum geboren"by Renate Reschke; Marco Brusotti

    De Gruyter 2012; US$ 196.00

    Nietzsches Denken ist in seiner Wirkung beispiellos widersprüchlich und fortgesetzt aktuell. An ihm scheiden sich bis heute die Geister. Philosophien, Kunstströmungen und politische Ideologien schwankten im 20. Jahrhundert zwischen Euphorie oder Verdammung, Affirmation oder Totschweigen. Missbräuchliche Lektüre hat unter faschistischem... more...

    John Hunt Publishing 2014; US$ 12.99

  • The A to Z of Aestheticsby Dabney Townsend

    Scarecrow Press 2010; US$ 38.00

    The A to Z of Aesthetics covers its history from Classical Greece to the present, including entries on non-western aesthetics.

  • Absolute Musicby Mark Evan Bonds

    Oxford University Press 2014; US$ 23.99

    In Absolute Music: The History of an Idea, author Mark Evan Bonds examines how writers have struggled to isolate the essence of music in ways that account for its profound effects on the human spirit. By carefully tracing the evolution of absolute music from Ancient Greece through the Middle Ages to twentieth-century America, Bonds provides the first... more...

  • Action, Art, Historyby Daniel Herwitz; Michael Kelly

    Columbia University Press 2012; US$ 64.99

    Renowned philosophers and art historians revisit Danto's theories of art, action, and history, and the depth of his innovation as a philosopher of culture. more...

  • Actions, Reasons and Reasonby Marco Iorio; Ralf Stoecker

    De Gruyter 2015; US$ 112.00

    Through the whole history of mankind philosophers have taken pride in being reasonable agents. During the last decades Rüdiger Bittner, one of the internationally best renown german philosophers and winner of the Gottlob Frege award 2011, has developed a surprisingly different picture: We are much more part than master of the universe.... more...

  • Administration of Aestheticsby Richard Burt

    University of Minnesota Press 1994; US$ 78.00

    The "new" censorship of the arts, some cultural critics say, is just one more item on the "new" Right's agenda, and is part and parcel of attempts to regulate sexuality, curtail female reproductive rights, deny civil rights to gays and lesbians, and privatize public institutions. Although they do not contest this assessment,... more...

  • Adolf Loosby Joseph Masheck

    I.B.Tauris 2013; US$ 14.95

    Widely regarded as one of the most significant prophets of modern architecture, Adolf Loos was a celebrity in his own day. His work was emblematic of the turn-of-the-century generation that was torn between the traditional culture of the nineteenth century and the innovative modernism of the twentieth. His essay ‘Ornament and Crime’ equated superfluous... more...

  • Adorno and Artby J. Hellings

    Palgrave Macmillan UK 2014; US$ 35.23

    A comprehensive, critical and accessible account of Theodor W. Adorno's materialist-dialectical aesthetic theory of art from a contemporary perspective, this volume shows how Adorno's critical theory is awash with images crystallising thoughts to such a degree that it has every reason to be described as aesthetic. more...
