This chapter focuses on the notion of the sublime, which is discussed in relation to its foil: beauty. It is argued that some of the specific ways that the experience of the sublime is gendered and racialized are to be found on both sides of the boundary between the modern and the postmodern. The chapter also considers Kantian sublime out of an interest in how the sublime functions as a mode of Euro-masculine self-constitution and how we might understand, in detail, what this means and how it works.

Keywords:   beauty, Kant, gender, modern, postmodern
