New Books by HASE members
Emmanouil Aretoulakis, Forbidden Aesthetics, Ethical Justice, and
Terror in Modern Western Culture (USA: Lexington Books, 2016), 182 pp. ISBN
Forbidden Aesthetics, Ethical Justice, and Terror in Modern Western Culture
explores the potential links between terror and aesthetics in modern Western
society, specifically the affinity between terrorism and the possibility of an
aesthetic appreciation of terrorist phenomena and events. But can we actually
have an aesthetic appreciation of terror or terrorism? And if we can, is it
ethical? The author insists, paradoxically, that it is.

Emmanouil Aretoulakis, Artificial Natures, Unnatural Desires and
the Unconscious Other. St. Thomas More's Utopia and Sir Philip Sidney's New
Arcadia (Saarbrucken, Germany: Omniscriptum, Scholar's Press, 2015), 271 pp.
This book explores the notion of artificiality in Renaissance England. What
is the artificial in English Renaissance Culture and Literature? In More's
Utopia and Sidney's New Arcadia, the artificial element assumes the dimension of
a new kind of technological nature which transcends the "artifice-nature"
dichotomy. In the two works, artificial natures and fake desires become natural
and authentic in a retrospective and unconscious fashion, thus problematizing
the very nature of Renaissance reality.
