Some may be familiar with his theory of tragedy and his (supposed) doctrine of the end of art, but many philosophers and writers on art pay little or no attention to his lectures on aesthetics. The essays in this collection, all but one written specifically for this volume, aim to raise the profile of Hegels aesthetic theory by showing in detail precisely why that theory is so powerful.

Writing from various perspectives and not necessarily aligned with Hegels position, the contributors demonstrate that Hegels lectures on aesthetics constitute one of the richest reservoirs of ideas about the arts, their history, and their future that we possess.Addressing a range of important topics, the essays examine the conceptual bases of Hegels organization of his aesthetics, his treatment of various specific arts (architecture, sculpture, painting, music, and tragedy), and several of the most famous issues in the literature--including the end of art thesis, the relation between art and religion, and the vexed relationship between Hegel and the romantics.

Together they shed light on the profound reflections on art contained in Hegels philosophy and also suggest ways in which his aesthetics might resonate well beyond the field of philosophical aesthetics, perhaps beyond philosophy itself.
