Enhanced descriptions from Syndetics:

Philosophy in Cultural Theory boldly crosses disciplinary boundaries to offer a philosophical critique of cultural theory today. Drawing on the legacy of Walter Benjamin, Peter Osborne looks critically at central philosophical debates in cultural theory, such as:<br> * the relationship between sign and image<br> * the technological basis of cultural form<br> * the conceptuality of art<br> * the place of fantasy in human affairs.<br> It will appeal to those in philosophy, cultural studies and art theory.

Includes bibliographical references and index.
