Description - Beauty and the Contemporary Sublime by Jeremy Gilbert-Rolfe

The text brings together several questions surrounding ideas of the beautiful, including its place in contemporary art, and proposes a secular theory of beauty, one that poses it as glamorous rather than good, frivolous rather than serious. The text aims to be of use to those interested in philosophy, cultural studies and art history, as well as the relationship between discourse and technology, technology and the body and the aesthetic versus the counter-aesthetic.
