Art, Myth and Society in Hegel's Aesthetics (Continuum Studies in Philosophy)

Art, Myth and Society in Hegel's Aesthetics (Continuum Studies in Philosophy) by David James
English | February 21st, 2007 | ASIN: B00526IEKK, ISBN: 0826489044 | 160 Pages | EPUB | 0.17 MB

Art, Myth and Society in Hegel’s Aesthetics returns to the student transcripts of Hegel’s lectures on aesthetics, which have yet to be translated into English and in some cases remain unpublished. David James develops the idea that these transcripts show that Hegel was primarily interested in understanding art as an historical phenomenon and, more specifically, in terms of its role in the ethical life of various peoples.

John H. Sceski argues that Karl Popper's philosophy offers a radical treatment of objectivity that can reconcile freedom and progress in a manner that preserves the best elements of the Enlightenment tradition. His book traces the development of Popper's account of objectivity by examining his original contributions to key issues in the philosophy of science.

Philosophy of Exaggeration (Continuum Studies in Continental Philosophy)

English | July 1st, 2007 | ASIN: B005VRKQZ6, ISBN: 0826495621 | 192 Pages | EPUB | 0.26 MB

'Thought always exaggerates', Hannah Arendt writes. The question of exaggeration becomes a philosophical question when thought endeavours to clarify the ways in which it relates to limits. If its disclosing force depends on exaggeration, so does the confusion to which it can fall prey. This book analyses concepts such as truth and trust, practices such as politics and art, experiences such as the formation of a life line and its erasure, from the viewpoint of exaggeration.

It has long been recognised that the Gothic genre sensationalised beliefs and practices associated with Catholicism. Often, the rhetorical tropes and narrative structures of the Gothic, with its lurid and supernatural plots, were used to argue that both Catholicism and sexual difference were fundamentally alien and threatening to British Protestant culture. Ultimately, however, the Gothic also provided an imaginative space in which unconventional writers from John Henry Newman to Oscar Wilde could articulate an alternative vision of British culture.
