Editorial Reviews


"...this book adds something new and provocative to the annals of Kantian scholarship...The book is richly illustrated and should provide arresting reading across the disciplines." H-Net Reviews

"Cheetham's work is an erudite and highly reflexive contribution to Kant studies, an invigorating and revitalizing critical infusion." German Studies Review

"Mark Cheetham's thorough and insightful new work investigates Kant's continuing influence on the visual arts, both in practice and as defined by the academic discipline of art history." Journal of the History of Philosophy

Book Description

Kant, Art, and Art History: Moments of Discipline is the first systematic study of Kant's reception and influence on the visual arts and art history. Arguing against Kant's transcendental approach to aesthetic judgment, Cheetham examines five "moments" of his influence. The final chapter focuses on Kant's "image," both in contemporary and posthumous portraits, with respect to his status as the image of philosophy within a disciplinary hierarchy. In Cheetham's reading, Kant emerges as a figure who has constantly erected and crossed the borders among art, its history, and philosophy.

More About the Author

My work centres on artwriting and art making in the modern and contemporary periods. I have written books and articles on abstract art, the reception of Immanuel Kant's thinking in the visual arts and the discipline of art history, on art historical methodology, and on recent Canadian and international art. The historiography and methodology of art history and the emerging field of Visual Culture is an ongoing research interest, as is contemporary art in Canada and abroad, from both curatorial and academic perspectives. My current work is on English cosmopolitanism in art theory since the 18th century and on GeoAesthetics. Website:
