Item description for Reid and His French Disciples: Aesthetics and Metaphysics (Brill's Studies in Intellectual History) by James W. Manns...

The book opens with the most detailed account yet of Thomas Reid's expressionist aesthetic theory, integrating it thoroughly into his metaphysical, epistemological, and metaphilosophical viewpoints, each of which is examined closely in its turn. The book then traces out the influence which Reid, an eighteenth-century Scottish thinker, exercised on nineteenth-century French philosophy, an influence which proves considerable. Victor Cousin, the most significant philosophical figure in post-Napoleonic France, was profoundly impressed by Reid' s thinking. The author demonstrates the depth and extent of his dependence in epistemological, metaphysical, and aesthetic matters. He then pursues Cousin's (hence Reid's) legacy through three succeeding generations of French academics and intellectuals, focusing throughout on the development of the expressionist aesthetic. Principal among these heritors are Theodore Jouffroy, Charles Leveque, and Sully-Prudhomme.
