About the Authors
  • Kant and the Claims of Taste, here published for the first time in paperback in a revised version, has become since its initial publication in 1979 the standard commentary on Kant's aesthetic theory. The book offers a detailed account of Kant's views on judgments of taste, aesthetic pleasure, imagination and many other topics. For this new edition, Paul Guyer has provided a new foreword and has added a chapter on Kant's conception of fine art.

    • Most detailed and authoritative commentary on Kant's aesthetic theory, itself the basis of modern aesthetics
    • Guyer is an internationally famous interpreter of Kant
    • Original hardcover volume was published by Harvard University Press in 1979
