Benjamin.
Philosophy, Aesthetics, History.


Essays by Walter Benjamin. Edited by Gary Smith.
University of Chicago Press, Chicago, 1989. 320 pp., 6x9".

In the European intellectual world, Benjamin's critical epistemological program, his philosophies of history and language, and his aesthetics have long ago become a part of philosophical discourse. Benjamin's contributions have only recently come to recognition in the United States. This book balances original texts by Benjamin with commentary on his works and ideas, and includes a chapter from his magnum opus The Arcades Project. Essays by Theodor Adorno, Leo Lowenthal, and Rolf Tiedemann, among others, treat single philosophical themes, and relate Benjamin's ideas to those of his contemporaries.
