Lyotard's Post-Modern "Aesthetics of the Sublime."

15191. Lyotard's Post-Modern "Aesthetics of the Sublime."

Based on views derived from Burke and Kant, Lyotard claimed that the purpose of art is to present that which can be felt or intuited, but is otherwise beyond the normal comprehension of human beings. The perspective, along with the rejection of "grand narratives," helps to explain the stylistic trends of post-modern art. 9 pages, 29 footnotes, 8 bibliographic references.
