Chander, "Contention and Contestation: Aesthetic Culture in Kant and Bourdieu"

Chander reads Kant's aesthetics and Bourdieu's cultural sociology as employing a strategy of 'transcritique,' which simultaneously rejects dominant strains of subjectivism and objectivism. This shared strategy, he argues, leads each thinker toward a model of culture that is fundamentally antagonistic, a model that helps explain the persistence of aesthetic controversies throughout the Romantic era.
