"Richard Kearney and David Rasmussen must be congratulated on their judicious selection of the main texts in continental aesthetics. Indeed, the result is so successful that the volume could as readily serve as a textbook for a course in continental philosophy as for a course in aesthetics. This volume surpasses all previous collections in the area." Robert Bernasconi, University of Memphis

"Collecting key selections from influential texts, this Anthology displays a wide range of important European theorists, past and present, and should prove very useful for courses in aesthetics and literary theory." Richard Shusterman, Temple University, author of Pragmatist Aesthetics
