This is the only available systematic critical overview of German aesthetics from 1750 to the present. The book begins with the work of Baumgarten and covers all the major writers on German aesthetics that follow, including Kant, Schiller, Schelling, Hegel, Nietzsche, Heidegger, Gadamer and Adorno. The book offers a clear and non-technical exposition of ideas, placing these in a wider philosophical context where necessary. Such is the importance of German aesthetics that the market for this book will extend far beyond the domain of philosophy to such fields as literary studies, fine art and music.

Industry Reviews

'... will serve as a valuable introduction to central aspects of nineteenth-century art and thought.' Art Newspaper
"This is a timely, useful, and compelling synthesis of important themes in German philosophical aesthetic thought. Recommended." -Choice
"What Hammermeister inevitably achieves in this compact, yet wonderfully rich, book is much more than a scholarly overview of an important and difficult historical tradition in aesthetic philosophy." -Philosophy and Literature
