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:
* the relationship between sign and image
* the technological basis of cultural form
* the conceptuality of art
* the place of fantasy in human affairs.
It will appeal to those in philosophy, cultural studies and art theory.
