An eloquent and sometimes even erotic book, the Philosophical Enquiry was long dismissed as a piece of mere juvenilia. However, Burke's analysis of the relationship between emotion, beauty, and art form is now recognized as not only an important and influential work of aesthetic theory, but also one of the first major works in European literature on the Sublime, a subject that has fascinated thinkers from Kant and Coleridge to the philosophers and critics of today.

About the Series: For over 100 years Oxford World's Classics has made available the broadest spectrum of literature from around the globe. Each affordable volume reflects Oxford's commitment to scholarship, providing the most accurate text plus a wealth of other valuable features, including expert introductions by leading authorities, voluminous notes to clarify the text, up-to-date bibliographies for further study, and much more.

About the Author:

Adam Phillips has been working in traditional 2D animation for Disney since early 1993, with eight of those years spent in special effects. With all his free time, he writes and animates short stories for his personal website and online gallery, www.biteycastle.com.
Most recently, Adam convinced US band, Ween, to let him animate the video for their single "Transdermal Celebration." All involved were happy with the result, and an optimized QuickTime version of the video can be found on the book's CD.
Adam is quite small, but has big hands.

Review:

`It is concisely and efficiently annotated, and its vivid introduction brings out, among other things, the deep interrelations between Burke's views on art and his political outlook, even in this early work.'
Claude Rawson, London Review of Books

'must be one of the most useful additions to the Oxford World's Classics series for some time'
Robin Jarvis, Bristol Polytechnic
