about

In recent years Kant's aesthetic theory has been the subject of a widespread revival of interest amongst English-speaking philosophers. This revival, however, has not so far encompassed Kant's aesthetic of the sublime. This neglect is unfortunate because, amongst Continental philosophers,the Kantian sublime is currently receiving widespread discussion in debates about the nature of postmodernism. Paul Crowther thus breaks new ground by providing what is probably the first monograph in any language to be devoted exclusively to Kant's theory of the sublime.

From Our Editors

Paul Crowther thus breaks new ground by providing what is probably the first monograph in any language to be devoted exclusively to Kant's theory of the sublime. His arguments center on the links which Kant makes between morality and anesthetics, and seek ultimately to modify Kant's approach so as to establish the sublime as a viable aesthetic concept with a broader cultural significance.

Editorial Reviews

'Crowther's book is most welcome, not just as a pedagogical aid but in its own right.'Mary Mothersil, Columbia University, Mind, Vol. 101, No. 401, Jan 1992
