A Philosophical Enquiry Into the Origin of Our Ideas of the Sublime and Beautiful

Dover Publications (1759)

Abstract
This eloquent 1757 treatise examines how interactions with the physical world affect formulation of ideals related to beauty and art. Tremendously influential on the development of aesthetic theory, this formative dissertation was among the first explorations of the concept of the sublime and remains a thought-provoking study for modern readers
