Beauty and the Contemporary Sublime (Aesthetics Today)

By: "Gilbert-Rolfe, Jeremy"

Price: $9.50

Publisher: Allworth Press:

Seller ID: 9781581150377

ISBN: 1581150377

Condition: very good


Esteemed critic, painter, and writer Jeremy Gilbert-Rolfe offers a provocative critique of beauty in relation to the contemporary notion of the sublime, which is now found in technology and a high-powered economy rather than in nature. Refuting established views, this book questions today's ideas of beauty, including those applied to contemporary art, and proposes a secular theory of beauty as glamorous rather than good, frivolous rather than serious. An illuminating read, this book provides excellent course material for classes in philosophy, cultural studies, art history, and aesthetics. View more info
