This is the first English-language anthology to provide a compendium of primary source material on the sublime. The book takes a chronological approach, covering the earliest ancient traditions up through the early and late modern periods and into contemporary theory. It takes an inclusive, interdisciplinary approach to this key concept in aesthetics and criticism, representing voices and traditions that have often been excluded. As such, it will be of use and interest across the humanities and allied disciplines, from art criticism and literary theory, to gender and cultural studies and environmental philosophy.

The anthology includes brief introductions to each selection, reading or discussion questions, suggestions for further reading, a bibliography and index - making it an ideal text for building a course around or for further study. The book's apparatus provides valuable context for exploring the history and contemporary views of the sublime.
Robert R. Clewis is Professor of Philosophy and Director of the Honors Program at Gwynedd Mercy University, USA and is an Alexander von Humboldt Fellow. He is author of The Kantian Sublime and the Revelation of Freedom (2009), a translator of Kant's Lectures on Anthropology (2012), and editor of Reading Kant's Lectures (2015).
