Promotional Information

Growing interest in the relation between Continental aesthetics and visual studies makes this book essential reading, presenting texts which have not yet been available in such a comprehensive form. It is therefore indispensable for both introductory courses on aesthetics and advanced seminars on art theory. -- Kalliopi Nikolopoulou, State University of New York, Buffalo The selection of texts in Christopher Kul-Want's anthology is excellent. It covers all the necessary ground, while including some very nice, unexpected additions, such as selections from Georges Bataille and Jean-Luc Nancy. -- Michael Newman, School of the Art Institute of Chicago
