Sinopsis: This book focuses on the work of four key thinkers - Kant, Heidegger, Derrida and Adorno - and provides a new interpretation of their writings on art, aesthetics and politics. Bernstein argues that our experience of art today is conditioned by the loss of the truth-function of art: with the growth of modern science and technological reasons, art is relegated to a separate and autonomous domain of the aesthetic. This condition of "aesthetic alienation" - the raging discord between art and truth - is one of the most perspicuous signs of the fragmentation of modernity. Aesthetic alienation is challenged in differing ways by modern Continental philosophers like Heidegger, Derrida and Adorno. Bernstein shows how each of these philosophers uses the experience of art and the discourse of aesthetics to criticize the fragmentation of modernity. He examines in detail their responses to aesthetic alientation and raises a range of fundamental questions concerning the relations between art, philosophy and politics in modern societies.
