Tight, clean copy. First paperback edition. "Conventionally, the philistine is assumed to have no value for art and culture. But in this fascinating re-evaluation of its excluded identity, Dave Beech and John Roberts address the philistine not as an empirical phenomenon but as a relational category that operates between art and anti-art, aesthetics and anti-aesthetics, arguing that the philistine cuts to the very core of the predicament of art in a divided culture. In this they develop what they call a 'counter-intuitive' notion of the philistine, claiming that what the philistine tells us about cultural division and exclusion is more persuasive than the theories of the popular and the 'otherly-cultured' in cultural studies and postmodernism. The 'counter-intuitive' philistine, they contest, returns the cultural debate to the problems of the persistence of power, privilege and symbolic violence. Asserting that the relations between power and art have been undertheorized in recent studies, Beech and Roberts find their critical resources in the least likely place: not in the 'best of things,' but in that which has 'no proper place.' / Dave Beech is an artist and writer. His work was shown recently in the Century City exhibition at Tate Modern and he contributes regularly to Art Monthly and Everything. John Roberts is the author of The Art of Interruption: Realism, Photography and the Everyday, the editor of Art Has No History!: The Making and Unmaking of Modern Art, and a regular contributor to Radical Philosophy, Historical Materialism and The Oxford Art Journal." - Publisher.

In this fascinating study, Dave Beech and John Roberts develop what they call a `counter-intuitive' notion of the philistine, claiming that what the philistine tells us about cultural division and exclusion is more persuasive than the theories of the popular and the `otherly-cultured' in cultural studies and postmodernism. The `counter-intuitive' philistine, they contest, returns the cultural debate to the problems of the persistence of power, privilege and symbolic violence. Asserting that the relations between power and art have been untheorized in recent studies, Beech and Roberts find their critical resources in the least likely place: not in the `best of things', but in that which has `no proper place'.The book also includes several in-depth responses to the Beech and Roberts thesis by leading scholars in the field of cultural theory, together with the authors' replies to their critics. aesthetics,art,humor and entertainment,philosophy,politics and social sciences,pop culture,social sciences Pop Culture, Verso
