Editorial Reviews

Amazon.com Review

Paul De Man's reputation was irreparably damaged by the revelation after his death of his wartime anti-Semitism, obscuring some valid intellectual contributions to the field of aesthetics. This collection of philosophical essays, compiled by Andrzej Warminski of the University of California, argues for the close connections between art and politics and art and science. He discusses Kant and Hegel, whose major contributions to aesthetics are less known than their work on rationality and morality. And in an essay on Schiller he deplores, rather naively, the poet/playwright's lack of philosophical concern for the basis of his art.

From Publishers Weekly

While the imitators of great literary theorists may have produced the least lucid, most jargon-laden and most parodied literary and cultural criticism since the 18th century, editors Wlad Godzich and Jochen Schulte-Sasse of the University of Minnesota's Theory and History of Literature series cannot be blamed for such excesses. Their 88-volume series, which contains some of the most cogent though still challenging criticism of the last 15 years, terminates with a volume from the controversial late Yale deconstructionist Paul de Man (Aesthetic Ideology) and a retranslated edition of mid-century Frankfurt School leader Theodore Adorno's Aesthetic Theory. This dignified leave-taking preempts the empty millennial speculation currently dominating postmodern studies, and leaves in its wake a generation of scholars reared on the series. (De Man: $49.95, 224p ISBN 0-8166-2203-5, $19.95 paper -2204-3; Adorno: $39.95, 448p ISBN 0-8166-1799-6, cloth only)

Format: Paperback
I just want to suggest that the person who previously reviewed this book makes a confusion between De Man's life and the content of this book. To say that this book is trite is mindless.
