MULTITUDE OF BLOGS None of the PDFs are my own productions. I've collected them from web (e-mule, avax, libreremo, socialist bros, cross-x, gigapedia..) What I did was thematizing. This blog's project is to create an e-library for a Heideggerian philosophy and Bourdieuan sociology Φ market-created inequalities must be overthrown in order to close knowledge gap. this is an uprising, do ya punk?

The German Aesthetic Tradition

The German Aesthetic Tradition
by Kai Hammermeister

# Paperback: 259 pages
# Publisher: Cambridge University Press (November 4, 2002)

"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

Product Description
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: Kant, Schiller, Schelling, Hegel, Nietzsche, Heidegger, Gadamer and Adorno. It offers a clear and non-technical exposition of ideas, placing these in a wider philosophical context where necessary. Interest in this book extends far beyond the discipline of philosophy to those of literary studies, fine art and music.
