A Philosophical Enquiry into the Origin of Our Ideas of the Sublime and Beautiful Summary


A Philosophical Enquiry into the Origin of Our Ideas of the Sublime and Beautiful by Edmund Burke

An eloquent and sometimes even erotic book, the Philosophical Enquiry was long dismissed as a piece of mere juvenilia. However, Burke's analysis of the relationship between emotion, beauty, and art form is now recognized as not only an important and influential work of aesthetic theory, but also one of the first major works in European literature on the Sublime, a subject that has fascinated thinkers from Kant and Coleridge to the philosophers and critics of today. This is the only available edition of the work.
