In recent years Kant's aesthetic theory has been the subject of a widespread revival of interest amongst English-speaking philosophers. This revival, however, has not so far encompassed Kant's aesthetic of the sublime. This neglect is unfortunate because, amongst Continental philosophers, the Kantian sublime is currently receiving widespread discussion in debates about the nature of postmodernism. Paul Crowther thus breaks new ground by providing what is probably the first monograph in any language to be devoted exclusively to Kant's theory of the sublime.

MEDIA REVIEWS
`this is a clear exposition of the origins of the concept in Addison and Burke, of its ethical dimension, and of the aesthetics of the sublime ... a thoughtful work.'
`Throughout this book Crowther's lucid way with material that often appears darkly opaque is impressive and springs, one guesses, from an exact blend of argument and passion. This is philosophy as it should be written.' Diane Collinson, The Open University, British Journal of Aesthetics
'Paul Crowther's book on the sugblime helps to fill a significant gap in Kant scholarship ... will be of considerable interest to Kant scholars and aestheticians alike ... The Kantian Sublime is an important book on a neglected topic. It merits serious attention by Kant scholars and aestheticians alike. It is, for the most part, a well-organized and clearly written book, which is no mean feat for a book on Kant's doctrine of the sublime.' Kenneth F. Rogerson, Florida International University, Journal of Aesthetics and Art Criticism, 49:4 Fall 1991
'Crowther's book is most welcome, not just as a pedagogical aid but in its own right.' Mary Mothersil, Columbia University, Mind, Vol. 101, No. 401, Jan 1992
