Some brief overview of this book

This series is about style. Philosopher Georg Lukacs described the style of a piece of work as the attempt to reproduce one's view of the world within it. Looked at in this way, he says, style ceases to be a formalistic category but rather, "it is rooted in content; it is the specific form of a specific content".

Philosopher Georg Lukacs described the style of a piece of work as the attempt to reproduce one's view of the world within it. Looked at in this way, he says, style ceases to be a formalistic category but rather, "it is rooted in content; it is the specific form of a specific content".

After all, style is not technique, but ought to convey an intention. Sociologist Georg Simmel said that style is the aesthetic attempt to provide a "unifying encompassing context". This series is about the content and context of style.

Undoubtedly, it will irritate and enthuse but it is intended to be a fillip for our contemporary era in which style is often equated with fashion - where style can be dismissed in order to avoid dealing with its essence. Therefore these essays are not style over substance, but the very substance of style. The De Stijl manifesto of 1918 argued that the liberal arts should engage in a dialogue to create a new "wisdom of life".

The robustness of these essays suggests that such an ambition still resonates. Such an exchange can still appear vital and captivating. Each Style: In Defence Of… confronts us with new ideas for contemplation and critique.

We hope that minds might be open to critically engage with each of these polemical bulletins. In so doing, we might reasonably formulate what we stand for.
