The essays in this 1996 volume explore the ways in which traditional philosophical problems about self-knowledge, self-identity, and value have migrated into literature since the Romantic and Idealist periods. How do so-called literary works take up these problems in a new way? What conception of the subject is involved in this literary practice? How are the lines of demarcation between philosophy and literature problematised? The contributors examine these issues with reference both to Romantic and Idealist writers and to some of their literary and philosophical inheritors and revisers. Their essays offer a philosophical understanding of the roots and nature of contemporary literary and philosophical practice, and elaborate, powerful and influential, but rarely decisively articulated, conceptions of the human subject and of value.

MEDIA REVIEWS
Review of the hardback: 'A greater measure of agreement will only be possible when more books of the quality of Beyond Representation have painted their grey on grey, and reshaped our understanding of the ethics and aesthetics of Romanticism.' John Kerrigan, The Times Literary Supplement
"With sophistication and clarity, these 12 essays show how works of philosophy and of literature have come to share much....In every respect--including the quality of the editing and production--this book is superior....Strongly recommended for all academic libraries." Choice
...one can get a fine and full overview from Richard Eldridge's excellent introduction, which includes a summary of every paper." Roger Seamon, The Journal of Aesthetics and Art Criticism
