    Sublimity: The Non-Rational and the Irrational in the History of Aesthetics.James Kirwan - 2005 - Routledge.
    In the history of aesthetics, few concepts have been as powerful and as elusive as the idea of the sublime, the "enthusiastic terror" that can possess us when we behold a mountain or a miracle. In his new book, James Kirwan traces the history of the sublime from its emergence in the eighteenth century to its resurgence in contemporary aesthetics. Sublimity addresses the nature of the sublime experience itself, and the function that experience has played, and continues to play, within (...)

    Beauty.James Kirwan - 1999 - Distributed Exclusively in the Usa by St. Martin's Press.
    James Kirwan provides both a lucid and concise history of the concept of beauty as a distinct aesthetic experience (marginalized by the rise of philosophical aesthetics in the twentieth century), and offers a new and persuasive answer to the age-old question of what beauty is an answer that, placing the responsibility for beauty firmly with the eye of the beholder, explains what it is in this "eye" that gives rise to beauty.

    Ethics and Responsibilisation in Agri-Food Governance: The Single-Use Plastics Debate and Strategies to Introduce Reusable Coffee Cups in UK Retail Chains.Damian Maye, James Kirwan & Gianluca Brunori - 2019 - Agriculture and Human Values 36 (2):301-312.
    This paper extends arguments about the potential for reflexive governance in agri-food sustainability by linking food ethics to the notion of ‘unintended consequences’ and ‘responsibilisation’. Analysis of sustainable consumption governance shows the way authorities and intermediaries use food waste reduction projects to ‘responsibilise’ the consumer, including recent examples of shared responsibility. This paper takes this argument further by developing a ‘strategies of responsibilisation’ framework that connects relations between food system outcomes, problematisation in public discourse and strategies of responsibilisation in agri-food (...)

    The Aesthetic Idea as the Essence of the Aesthetic.James Kirwan - 2018 - Espes 7 (1):24-29.
    This paper suggests that Kant’s concept of the ‘aesthetic idea’ is a useful starting point for understanding the nature of aesthetic experience once we reject the formalist interpretation that Kant gives to the relationship between those ideas and that experience.
