Like other readers published by Cassandra Press, Reader on Aesthetic Injustice (Part 1) takes a cultural signifier or thematic topic as a starting point for a larger political dialogue. Bound by just two green binder clips, this collection of photocopies of essays of cultural criticism and aesthetic philosophy address, in some cases directly from one author to the next, the function and ethics of aesthetics.
Miranda Fricker, “Epistemic Injustice and a Role for Virtue in the Politics of Knowing”
Elizabeth Barnes, “Disability Pride,” The Minority Body
Friedrich Schiller, “Letters on the Aesthetic Education of Man”
Georg Wilhelm Friedrich Hegel, excerpts from Lectures on Aesthetics
Theodor Adorno and Max Horkheimer, “The Culture Industry,” The Dialectic of Enlightenment
