  • Bloomsbury History of Modern Aesthetics
    This collection delves into the history of aesthetics by bringing together hard-to-find sources from the eighteenth, nineteenth and early-twentieth centuries. Supported by new introductions and secondary literature, the newly-digitized primary texts open up our understanding of the history of modern aesthetics. They present a fascinating and varied range of ideas about art, nature and taste and make available the work by thinkers including Samuel Alexander, Alexander Baumgarten, R. G. Collingwood, William Gilpin, Georg Friedrich Meier, Anna Jameson, Richard Payne Knight, Uvedale Price and Friedrich Schiller.

    Content Highlights
    • Newly-digitized hard-to-find primary texts by eighteenth, nineteenth and early-twentieth century intellectuals and philosophers, such as Alexander Baumgarten, R. G. Collingwood, Friedrich Schiller, Uvedale Price and Anna Jameson. The texts are tagged with a subject-specific taxonomy and cross-searchable with related primary sources and secondary literature.
    • Exclusive introductions accompany primary sources and provide explanations of how we can read the texts today
    • A selection of scholarly eBooks features research monographs, edited handbooks and study guides

  • Bloomsbury Contemporary Aesthetics
    Bloomsbury Contemporary Aesthetics is a digital collection dedicated to the study of aesthetics and philosophy of art. Designed for undergraduates, postgraduates, faculty and scholars in philosophy, literature, and art departments, it aids teaching, supports research, and provides a new way of working in this vibrant field.

    Comprised of a mix of content types, this resource features primary texts, exclusive case studies, a bank of images, secondary literature eBooks, and a digital-only reference work, Aesthetics and Politics in the Global South. Fully-searchable and browsable by theme, Bloomsbury Contemporary Aesthetics reflects the depth, versatility, and relevance of aesthetics today.

    Case Studies
      Exclusively commissioned for Bloomsbury Contemporary Aesthetics, each case study centers around a single artwork or everyday item. They cover a vast array of objects including sculpture, art installations, nature, food, theatre, and beards, offering alternate ways of interpreting art, creativity, and beauty. These are entertaining, illustrated introductions to core aesthetic questions about taste, judgement and the definition of art.
      General Editor: Darren Hudson Hick, Furman University, USA

    Aesthetics and Politics in the Global South
      General Editor: J. Daniel Elam, The University of Hong Kong

      An essential set of critical readings for understanding the global roots, context and counterparts of traditional aesthetic theories. It brings together selections from 47 aesthetic and political texts across South East Asia, South Asia, Africa, the Caribbean, and Latin America in the 20th century. Authors include ground-breaking thinkers, utopianists and revolutionaries including Rabindranath Tagore, Lu Xun, C.L.R. James, Suzanne Césaire, Claudia Jones, Albert Wendt, Gabriel Garcia Marquez and Édouard Glissant. Aimed at students and scholars in philosophy, literary studies, and politics looking to decolonize the aesthetic tradition and expand their knowledge of aesthetics beyond Europe.

    Primary Texts and Scholarly Monographs
      The curated selection of over 100 eBooks cover aesthetics across the humanities, ranging from study guides and teaching aids to research texts and edited collections. Titles include Introducing Aesthetics and Philosophy of Art (Second Edition) and series such as Bloomsbury Aesthetics, Contemporary Aesthetics and Art, Contemporary Thinkers Reframed and Radical Aesthetics-Radical Art.

      In partnership with Broadview Press, Hackett, Princeton University Press and Yale University Press, the Primary Texts include influential works in philosophical aesthetics by authors such as Mieke Bal, Monroe Beardsley, Nelson Goodman, Jean-Marie Schaeffer, and Francis Edward Sparshott.

    Image Gallery and Video Case Studies
      A collection of 200 images has been carefully selected by a team of philosophers who have identified visuals that can be used to spark class discussions or form the basis of a research paper. Images address issues such as the nature of aesthetic judgement, the status of art, and the place of arts within society.

      Videos have been created around case studies to provide closer analysis of detail in the objects. Click here to watch the first set of videos accompanying ‘Okesa II: A Case Study in Indigenous Aesthetics as a non-Western Paradigm’ and ‘Katharina Grosse, It Wasn’t Us’.

  • Bloomsbury Encyclopedia of Philosophers
    Bloomsbury Encyclopedia of Philosophers features thousands of critical biographical entries on individuals who have contributed to the history of modern thought and philosophy. Each entry includes a comprehensive overview of a subject's life, work, and reception together with a bibliography and list of further reading.

    The resource covers thinkers from across the globe, including Britain, Germany, France, the Netherlands, Spain, Ireland, North America, the Middle East and India. Our time period focuses on the seventeenth to the twentieth century.

    What makes our encyclopedia different is that as well as being purely biographical, entries on philosophers are not the only entries you will find. We have entries on individuals who have contributed to the development of modern American and European philosophy, but are usually overlooked because they are female or working in a profession omitted from studies of philosophy.

    Alongside the giants of philosophy you will encounter people from other intellectual domains: civil rights activists, classicists, clergymen, economists, mathematicians, novelists, poets, politicians and scientists who had something to say on topics that count as philosophical.

    Content Highlights
    • More than 8,000 peer-reviewed entries on figures who have made a contribution to the history of thought and philosophy.
    • Includes thinkers from North America, Britain, Ireland, France, Germany, the Netherlands and the Middle East
    • Entries include a comprehensive overview of a subject’s life, work, and reception together with a bibliography and list of further reading
    • Covers thinkers from economics, sciences, classics, political thought, philosophy, theology, literature, law, and medicine
    • Over 15,000 inter-article cross-references
    • A glossary of Islamic terms

    Future collections are planned around Asian Philosophies, History and Philosophy of Science, Radical Thought and Political Philosophy and Women Philosophers.
