Selected Writings on Aesthetics
€ 109.99 *
ggf. zzgl. Versand

´´Only a small fraction of Herder´s writings has been translated into English, and such translations are often archaic and/or unreliable. I know of no previous translation of the ´´Critical Forests,´´ for example, although the first and fourth parts, which appear in the present volume, are of major interest to students of aesthetics. With ´´Selected Writings on Aesthetics,´´ these and other texts by Herder are now accessible to readers of English, through the pen of a translator who exhibits clarity and elegance of style.´´--Hugh Barr Nisbet, University of Cambridge ´´This much-needed book brings into English a philosopher severely underrepresented in this language, yet of paramount importance to any adequate understanding of the late eighteenth century in Germany and indeed of the rest of Europe.´´--Robert E. Norton, University of Notre Dame ´´This collection provides translations of the most important aesthetic writings of Herder, a crucial, original thinker in the field of aesthetics, an important influence on later German philosophy, and a writer whose significance has also been acknowledged by such recent thinkers as Isaiah Berlin and Charles Taylor. Even advanced scholars sometimes find a translation useful for such a difficult writer, and some of the writings translated here, such as ´´Critical Forests,´´ are not very easily found even in German.´´--Michael Inwood, Trinity College, Oxford ´´This is a timely translation because Herder´s importance is more apparent than ever and his work is undergoing a significant revaluation.´´--Cyrus Hamlin, Yale University

Modernism and Scottish Theatre since 1969
€ 66.99 *
ggf. zzgl. Versand

This book argues that Scottish theatre has, since the late 1960s, undergone an artistic renaissance, driven by European Modernist aesthetics. Combining detailed research and analysis with exclusive interviews with ten leading figures in modern Scottish drama, the book sets out the case for the last half-century as the strongest period in the history of the Scottish stage. Mark Brown traces the development of Scottish theatre´s Modernist revolution from the arrival of influential theatre director Giles Havergal at the Citizens Theatre, Glasgow in 1969 through to the advent of the National Theatre of Scotland in 2006. Finally, the book contemplates the future of Scotland´s theatrical renaissance. It is essential reading for anyone interested in contemporary theatre and/or the modern history of live drama in Scotland.

Leopoldo Marmor Couchtisch von Tiziana Vittoni ...
€ 2820.00 *
zzgl. € 95.00 Versand

This coffee or smoking table is from a collection that showcases historical and precious Medici marbles. The Medici marbles are extracted exclusively in the Apuan Alps of Tuscany and in neighboring areas. Portoro marble was already used in Etruscan × the Calacatta Persichino, Bleu Turquin, and Breccia Medicea varieties were used for the construction of countless buildings, churches, fountains, and furnishings of medieval and Renaissance Florence. Through a process of abstraction of the aesthetics of the past, Tiziana Vittoni reaches the realization of objects that have an unmistakable timeless elegance. The piece was designed in 2017.

German Idealism Today
€ 85.99 *
ggf. zzgl. Versand

This collection of essays provides an exemplary overview of the diversity and relevance of current scholarship on German Idealism. The importance of German Idealism for contemporary philosophy has received growing attention and acknowledgment throughout competing fields of contemporary philosophy. Part of the growing interest rests on the claim that the works of Kant, Fichte, Schelling, Hegel remain of considerable interest for cultural studies, sociology, theology, aesthetics and other areas of interest. In the domain of philosophy, the renaissance of innovative readings of German Idealism has taken scholarly debates beyond merely antiquarian perspectives. This renaissance has been a major factor of current efforts to bridge the gap between so-called ´´analytic´´ and so-called ´´continental´´ philosophy. The volume provides a selection of well-chosen examples of readings that contribute to systematic treatments of philosophical problems. It contains (among others) contributions by Markus Gabriel, Robert Pippin, Anders Moe Rasmussen, Sebastian Rödl.

Vintage Red Swedish Flatweave Carpet
€ 4782.00 *
zzgl. € 1135.00 Versand

With its geometric, stylized pattern and harmonious palette of red, orange, and violet, this vintage flatweave rug typifies the outstanding textile design of midcentury Sweden. While the Swedish rug-making tradition can be traced back to Byzantine trade routes over a thousand years ago, the early- and mid-20th century saw something of a renaissance, with Scandinavian weavers attracting international attention for their flat-woven rollakan and shaggy, hand-knotted rya rugs. This generation of talented rug makers—many of whom studied architecture and industrial design before focusing on craft production—experimented with abstract motifs while preserving traditional methods, capturing public interest with floor coverings that offer the appeal of both old and the new. As modernist principles and aesthetics spread through the Scandinavian countries nearly a century ago—with furniture and interiors becoming simpler and more standardized—folk-inspired; handcrafted decorative accents were widely embraced as a wonderful way of maintaining an atmosphere of individualized and cozy hominess. An approach that remains totally relevant today. This rug is offered in great vintage condition.
