Savoring Disgust: The Foul and the Fair in Aesthetics [Book Review]
British Journal of Aesthetics 52 (1):113-116 (2012)
AbstractCarolyn Korsmeyer’s Savoring Disgust is a book that, in spite of its seemingly unsavoury subject matter, deserves to be widely read. Written in an accessible yet richly suggestive prose, it is the first systematic investigation in English-speaking contemporary philosophy of the aesthetic and artistic significance of the emotion of disgust. Korsmeyer’s book discusses a wealth of issues that it is difficult to match and presents a comprehensive and organic approach to a previously underexplored topic. The intelligence of its analysis and the elegance of its prose prove that one can indeed be pleasurably absorbed in matters disgusting.
