The Pulse of Modernism

Physiological Aesthetics in Fin-de-Siècle Europe

Robert Brain traces the origins of artistic modernism to specific technologies of perception developed in late-nineteenth-century laboratories. Brain argues that the thriving fin-de-siècle field of "physiological aesthetics," which sought physiological explanations for the capacity to appreciate beauty and art, changed the way poets, artists, and musicians worked and brought a dramatic transformation to the idea of art itself.

About the Author

Robert Brain is associate professor of history at the University of British Columbia.

Endorsement

"This terrific book brings forward new research on techniques of science, art, politics and philosophy, finding hidden connections between these only seemingly disparate worlds and providing a fresh and inspiring reconceptualization of European modernism."—John Tresch, University of Pennsylvania
