Summary:This book reconceives modern aesthetics by reconstructing its genesis in the eighteenth century, between Baumgarten's Aesthetics and Kant's Critique of Judgment.
"Menke forcefully makes the point that with the emergence of aesthetics in the eighteenth century, philosophy, and its understanding of itself, underwent a radical change." -- -Rodolphe Gasche * University of Buffalo, SUNY * "Force is an outstanding study of the philosophical, ethical and political underpinnings of modern aesthetics and an important and original contribution to contemporary debates about the fate of modernity, philosophy, and the arts." -- -Paola Marrati * The Johns Hopkins University * Continental philosophers working in the area of aesthetics will find this book to be of great interest. Menke's study is brief, but compelling and highly learned-- a welcome addition to the scholarship. . Recommended. * -Choice *.
