Pressestimmen'The overall theme of this superb collection (ten of Guyer's papers, half of them previously unpublished) concerns the complex of relations among Kant's views of art and aesthetic experience, the interests of morality and society in the latter, and more generally the connection between morality and human sensibility ... a major contribution to a study of both the ethics and the aesthetics.' Richard E. Aquila, The University of Tennessee
