In recent years it has been the focus of intense interest and debate not only in philosophy but also in literary theory and all disciplines concerned with the aesthetic.The Aesthetic in Kant is a new reading of Kants problematic text.

It draws upon the great volume of recent philosophical work on this classic text and on the context of eighteenth century aesthetics. Kants work is used as a basis on which to construct a radical alternative to the antinomy of taste - the basic problem of the aesthetic.

In Kants account is a theory of the aesthetic that, far from establishing its disinterested nature, instead makes it symptomatic of what Kant himself describes as the ineradicable human tendency to entertain fantastic desires.
