The Continental Aesthetics Reader is the first comprehensive anthology of classic writings on art and aesthetics from the major figures in Continental thought. The reader is clearly divided into six sections: Nineteenth Century German Aesthetics * Phenomenology and Hermeneutics * Marxism and Critical Theory * Modernism * Poststucturalism and Postmodernism * Psychoanalysis and Feminism. Each section is clearly placed in its historical and philosophical context by Clive Cazeaux.
The readings featured are the most widely read and representative writings of each movement and are from the following major thinkers:
Kant Sartre Benjamin Lyotard
Hegel Levinas Blanchot Deleuze
Nietzsche Marx Bloch Freud
Heidegger Lukacs Bataille Lacan
Dufrenne Adorno Foucault Kristeva
Bachelard Marcuse Barthes Irigaray
Merleau-Ponty Habermas Derrida Cixous
Gadamer Jameson de Man
Vattimo Simmel Baudrillard
Ideal for introductory courses in aesthetics, continental philosophy, art and visual studies, The Continental Aesthetics Reader provides a thorough introduction to some of the most influential writings on art and aesthetics from Kant to Derrida.
