Critique Of Rationality : Judgement and Creativity from Benjamin to Merleau-Ponty, Paperback / softback Book

Critique Of Rationality : Judgement and Creativity from Benjamin to Merleau-Ponty Paperback / softback

Description

Critique of Rationality postulates aesthetic-consciousness as the site of socialisation in communities of meaning, as a frame for judgment and creativity, arguing that struggling to awaken that consciousness is essential to an open society.

In making this argument, O'Brien moves through phenomenology, epistemology, Romanticism, aesthetics, and psycho-analytics, drawing on many of the key thinkers of western philosophy on the way.
