From the Publisher
"That contemporary theory would eventually turn back to consider its origins in the contradictions of philosophical aesthetics was predictable; but nothing could have prepared us for Eagleton's extraordinary confrontation with the entire modern history of this discourse, in a book which will be indispensable for years to come."
F. R. Jameson, Duke University
"Eagleton succeeds brilliantly in situating aesthetic theory as an irreducibly heterogeneous series of discourses who ideological and political effect on North Atlantic civilization since the Englightenment has been more diverse and consequential than traditional philosophical, literary, and cultural theory has previously suspected or acknowledged."
