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.


'Peter Osbourne's book breaks new ground … [he is] an original thinker.' - Radical Philosophy
