Last Book You Read or Currently Reading

RE: Last Book You Read or Currently Reading
Aesthetics, A Comprehensive Anthology. Right now I'm reading "Aesthetic Theory" by Theodore Adorno as it marks a major turning point in the history of aesthetics; specifically, he deals with Kant, Hegel and Freud in relation to past (metaphysical) concepts of art. Then I'll go back and read all the fun stuff - Greek literature and Christian philosophy, etc, etc - on aesthetics, which preceeds it. Finally, I'll finish with current essays on the subject.

I can't believe the essays of Wilde did not make it into such an anthology - but then it is primarily an analytical philosophy book rather than a continental one.

Literature adds to reality, it does not simply describe it. It enriches the necessary competencies that daily life requires and provides; and in this respect, it irrigates the deserts that our lives have already become. CS Lewis.
