Amending the Abject Body: Aesthetic Makeovers in Medicine and Culture

Amending the Abject Body: Aesthetic Makeovers in Medicine and Culture (SUNY series in Feminist Criticism and Theory) by Deborah Caslav Covino
English | Oct. 28, 2004 | ISBN: 0791462323 | 163 Pages | PDF | 1 MB

Examines the implications and meanings of the makeover and aesthetic surgery industry in American popular culture.
Feminist theorists have often argued that aesthetic surgeries and body makeovers dehumanize and disempower women patients, whose efforts at self-improvement lead to their objectification. Amending the Abject Body proposes that although objectification is an important element in this phenomenon, the explosive growth of "makeover culture" can be understood as a process of both abjection (ridding ourselves of the unwanted) and identification (joining the community of what Julia Kristeva calls "clean and proper bodies"). Drawing from the advertisement and advocacy of body makeovers on television, in aesthetic surgery trade books, and in the print and Web-based marketing of face lifts, tummy tucks, and Botox injections, Deborah Caslav Covino articulates the relationship among objectification, abjection, and identification, and offers a fuller understanding of contemporary beauty-desire.

The Fleeting Promise of Art: Adorno's Aesthetic Theory Revisited

The Fleeting Promise of Art: Adorno's Aesthetic Theory Revisited by Peter Uwe Hohendahl
English | 2013 | ISBN: 0801478987 , 0801452368 | 200 pages | EPUB | 0,3 MB

A discussion of Theodor Adorno’s Aesthetic Theory is bound to look significantly different today than it would have looked when the book was first published in 1970, or when it first appeared in English translation in the 1980s. In The Fleeting Promise of Art, Peter Uwe Hohendahl reexamines Aesthetic Theory along with Adorno’s other writings on aesthetics in light of the unexpected return of the aesthetic to today’s cultural debates.
German Music Criticism in the Late Eighteenth Century: Aesthetic Issues in Instrumental Music

German Music Criticism in the Late Eighteenth Century: Aesthetic Issues in Instrumental Music
Publisher: Cambridge University Press | pages: 268 | 1997 | ISBN: 052158227X | PDF | 5,7 mb

Music aesthetics in late-eighteenth-century Germany has always been problematic because there was no aesthetic theory to evaluate the enormous amount of high-quality instrumental music produced by composers such as Haydn and Mozart. This book derives a practical aesthetic theory from an analysis of 1,300 reviews of instrumental music published in Germany between 1760 and 1798. The reviews document an intersection with trends in literature and philosophy, and reveal interest in criteria such as genius, the expressive power of music, and the necessity of unity, several decades earlier than has previously been supposed.
