In this monograph Paul Crowther seeks to overcome some of the antagonistic positions taken in recent debates about postmodernism. He addresses such issues as the relation between art and politics, artistic creativity, and sublimity and the postmodern sensibility. His analysis of these themes centres on the interplay between what is constant and what is historically variable in human experience.

Review quote

His arguments are lucid, clearly stated and, above all, absorbing ... a welcome contribution to a subject area of philosophy which straddles many disciplines ... Students of the visual arts and of their theory would do well to verse themselves in this kind of work. * Philosophical Quarterly *
