The eighteenth and nineteenth centuries witnessed a change in the perception of the arts and of philosophy, which were formerly regarded as practices possessing a proper method, but then came to be seen as practices allowing the pursuit of alternative styles. The essays in this book examine the circumstances, features, and consequences of this historical transition, exploring in particular new aspects and instances of the interrelatedness of content and its formal representation in both the arts and philosophy.
