Kantian Sublime by Paul A. Crowther

Book Description

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.

Books By Author Paul A. Crowther

From Luminous Hot Stars to Starburst Galaxies by Paul A. Crowther From Luminous Hot Stars to Starburst Galaxies, Paperback (October 2012)

A detailed introduction for graduate students and researchers, which connects the astrophysics of massive stars with the extremes of galaxy evolution.

Kantian Aesthetic by Paul A. Crowther Kantian Aesthetic, Hardback (March 2010)

The Kantian Aesthetic explains the kind of perceptual knowledge involved in aesthetic judgments. It does so by linking Kant's aesthetics to a critically upgraded account of his theory of knowledge. Paul Crowther offers an original and lively approach to the cognitive structure of aesthetic judgment.

Defining Art, Creating the Canon by Paul A. Crowther Defining Art, Creating the Canon, Hardback (March 2007)

What is art? Why should we value it? Traditional answers have emphasized aesthetic form. This book attempts to restore the mimetic definition of art on the basis of factors which traditional answers neglect, namely the conceptual link between art's aesthetic value and 'non-exhibited' epistemological and historical relations.

Philosophy After Postmodernism by Paul A. Crowther Philosophy After Postmodernism, Hardback (June 2003)

Formulating an approach to philosophy which, instead of simply rejecting postmodern thought, tries to assimilate some of its main features, Paul Crowther identifies conceptual links between value, knowledge, personal identity and civilization understood as a process of cumulative advance.
