Inhaltsangabe: In this seminal study, Robert Wicks provides a sweeping survey of European Aesthetics over the last two hundred years. Presenting the theories of sixteen important continental thinkers including Kant, Nietzsche, Freud, and Derrida, this the only comprehensive study of the evolution of continental thought in this key area of philosophy.

Highlighting European ambivalence towards reason in the aftermath of the violence of the French Revolution, Wick shows how each philosopher deals with the tension between the ideals of scientific rationalism on one side and creativity and human instinct on the other. Should art be evaluated objectively in terms of its form and dimensions, or should we value it because of how it makes us feel? With a colour plate section and written in a lively but objective tone, this book will prove essential for students in Philosophy, Art, and English Literature.

Über den Autor: Robert Wicks is associate professor of philosophy at the University of Auckland. He has written books on Schopenhauer, Nietzsche and Kant and is a regular contributor to the Journal of Aesthetics and Art Criticism.

Buchbeschreibung Oneworld Publications, United Kingdom, 2013. Hardback. Buchzustand: New. 234 x 160 mm. Language: English . Brand New Book. The birth of the Enlightenment heralded a new reverence for the power of reason. But as science flourished in Europe, violence and brutality did not abate. In the French Revolution, thousands were guillotined and the death toll was vast. Philosophers asked whether we had become dehumanised by rationality and abstract political theory. Did art and literature provide a way to rediscover our soul and our compassion? Or could art be corrupted just as easily, used as propaganda to justify abhorrent acts? In this masterful survey of European aesthetics over the last two hundred years, philosopher Robert L. Wicks argues that it is this tension between creativity and rationality that has characterised debate in the subject. Presenting the theories of sixteen seminal thinkers, including Kant, Nietzsche, Freud, and Derrida, European Aesthetics shows how each philosopher s theory of art was motivated by broader topics in their thought, concerning who we are and what a good society should resemble. With colour photographs and written in a lively but objective tone, Wicks analyses important pieces of art, makes critical comparisons between thinkers, and offers a bold conclusion on our contemporary aesthetic situation. In an internet age, where we are presented with endless opportunity, but also startling existential questions, this is the definitive account of the evolution of continental thought in this hugely relevant and exciting area of philosophy.
