Présentation de l'éditeur

Inventing Agency explores the unprecedented productions of the subject as agent - of cognition, aesthetic experience and judgment, imagination and representation, and moral and political action - that together define the "revolution" in reflection that Kant called "the Age of Critique." It addresses the invention of subjecthood by philosophical and literary conceptions of the specifically human capacities that continue to reveal the prospect of social - individual and historical - agency in action.
