Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
Andrew Bowie's "Aesthetics and subjectivity From Kant to Nietzsche" ("subjectivity" with a small "s") is an amazing undertaking. His text far exceeds the trajectory declared in the title. He delivers on providing a survey of the period between Kant and Nietzsche, as the title proclaims, covering both the vast and complex ideas and relations between early German Romanticism and Idealist philosophy. This is not faint praise that precedes undermining criticisms. This work is a foundational text on the subject it announces. But also interwoven in this line of explication are two other cords of thought: a discourse on the role of music in enabling the figures of this period to find new relations to language; and second a dialogue with contemporary thinkers whose work takes account of what transpired in this period.
This mixture of discourses makes for a very long book. I would have preferred that there be, in fact, three books, one on the course announced by the title, and two others on the secondary cords I have mentioned. If you consider the depth he goes into in making a distinction between the Romantics, the Idealists and Nietzsche, this could actually become five books. I promise, Prof. Bowie, I would read them all.
But there is something to to be said for the confluence of the three (or five) narratives: it seems to me that this book describes the nexus of what Bowie is trying to work out for himself as a stance for his own work going forward, one from which he can make his own original contributions. Maybe if he weren't so ensconced and beholden to his academic milieu, he would feel freer to move on.

Format: Paperback
How can such a scholarly and erudite author such as Andrew Bowie publish a book in which introductory participial phrases are almost never followed by a comma? The lack of commas makes this book doubly difficult...once to parse the structure, then once to grasp the rich meaning. I find myself penciling in commas just so that my re-read will not stumble a second time. What a shame! This book is a fantastic account of post-Kantian philosophy grappling with the questions of subjectivity and their revelation (or otherwise) in co-contemporary aesthetic vehicles.

Come to think of it, how can Manchester University Press allow such a travesty to travel under their imprint -- in the book's second edition, no less?
