About this product
- DescriptionIntellectuals consigned the passions of beauty to the margins, replacing them with the anemic and rarefied alternative, 'aesthetic pleasure'. This book seeks to restore the place of beauty in art, to reestablish the connections among art, beauty, and desire, and to show that the values of art are equally crucial to the rest of life.
