A good-looking new version of the seminal choice of late-twentieth-century cultural feedback. Named a top ebook of the yr by way of the Village Voice and regarded a bible of up to date cultural feedback, The Anti-Aesthetic is reissued now in a good-looking new paperback variation.

Human bodies were complex machines, but the person—the ‘I’—is the mind, which is entirely free. From dualist roots in Descartes’s philosophy has grown the distinction between the natural sciences and the Geisteswissenschaften (the social sciences and humanities). One strong tradition throughout the modern period has claimed, prior to and over against the logical positivists’ program for the unification of science, that these are two radically different kinds of discipline with different methodologies—one dealing with a mechanistically conceived physical nature, the other dealing with the inner life of the mind and mind’s cultural products.
Tend to presuppose the same basic theory of knowledge—foundationalism. Thus, McClendon pointed out that modern epistemologists could be thought of as falling along a spectrum or axis, with radical skeptics (disappointed foundationalists) at one end and optimistic foundationalists at the other. In philosophy of language, if language ordinarily gets its meaning from what it represents in the world, then some account has to be given of nonfactual forms of discourse such as ethics, aesthetics, and religion.
