This edited collection examines alternative or entangled modernities as competitive narratives that blend ethics, aesthetics, and critical thinking to depict the human condition. It includes chapters covering the rivalry between scientific and aesthetic revolutions; contemporary trends in postmodernity; and study-cases on visual arts and cinema. The collection applies a philosophical view of visual arts and cinema, and competitive narratives of (post)modernity that arise from ethics and aesthetics as complementary fields. Key audiences for the book are students, PhD candidates, and scholars from the field of philosophy, aesthetics and cultural studies. This volume emerges from contributions held at the International Conference Rethinking Modernity: Transitions and Challenges, organized by the Research Center for the History and Circulation of Philosophical Ideas of the University of Bucharest.
The volume can be purchased directly from Ethics International Press or from booksellers and suppliers.
