The Sublime

Check out this article by the journalist, Richard Fisher, “The upsides of feeling small,” published in December 2022. It’s a wonderful overview article about the sublime and kicks off a new series, “Immensities,” by BBC Future. Fisher quotes from my book, The Sublime in Modern Philosophy: Aesthetics, Ethics and Nature (2013), reflects on a variety of sublime experiences, and references work in psychology, too.
