Forbidden Aesthetics, Ethical Justice, and Terror in Modern Western Culture Hardback

Description

The book explores the forbidden feelings of beauty, admiration, or satisfaction before instances of terror and human pain from eighteenth-century natural disasters to twenty-first-century terrorist destruction.

It explores the fascination felt by the subject witnessing major disasters directly or in a mediated fashion.

Emmanouil Aretoulakis' makes the challenging proposition that there is, paradoxically, an ethics in the aesthetic appraisal of terror.
