In this monograph Paul Crowther seeks to overcome some of the antagonistic positions taken in recent debates about postmodernism. He addresses such issues as the relation between art and politics, artistic creativity, and sublimity and the postmodern sensibility. His analysis of these themescentres on the interplay between what is constant and what is historically variable in human experience.
Paul Crowther is at Corpus Christi College, Oxford (from October 1995).

Editorial Reviews

'His arguments are lucid, clearly stated and, above all, absorbing ... a welcome contribution to a subject area of philosophy which straddles many disciplines ... Students of the visual arts and of their theory would do well to verse themselves in this kind of work.'Edward Winters, University of Westminster, The Philosophical Quarterly 1995
