Editorial Reviews

Book Description

This study analyses the emergence of aesthetic theory in eighteenth-century Germany in relation to contemporary theories of the nature of language and signs. As well as being extremely relevant to the discussion of literary theory, this perspective casts much light on Enlightenment aesthetics.

Format: Paperback
This is one of the most insightful studies of 18th. century aesthetics I've ever read, and provides an invaluable grounding for further research in this area. It's intended primarily for specialist readers but is well worth the effort.
