Elisabeth Shellekens, The Journal of Aesthetics and ArtCriticism
"As an overall assessment, then, this is undoubtedly one of themost interesting and meticulous "guides" to Kant's aesthetictheory. Even though Wenzel clearly adopts a slightly differentapproach to Kant's aesthetic theory than this reviewer, this bookis probably the best introductory volume currently available."
Kenneth F. Rogerson, Notre DamePhilosophical Reviews
"In sum, I highly recommend this book to students and scholarswith some familiarity with Kant and the "Critique ofAesthetic Judgment." This book will surely deepen theirunderstanding of Kant."
Karl Ameriks,University of Notre Dame
"Wenzel's book is an invaluable aid for all seriousstudents of Kant's third Critique. The reconstruction ofarguments is clear and concise; the annotated bibliography isremarkably knowledgeable and helpful."
Eckart Förster, Johns HopkinsUniversity
"This volume will be indispensable to any new reader ofKant's third Critique who seeks illumination of its key concepts,insights into its philosophical context, and guidance for furtherstudy."
