Cambridge Scholars Publishing is pleased to announce the publication of Continuity between the World and Art, and the Problem of Globalization by Pedro Aullón de Haro.

This book represents a synthetic challenge to create a general aesthetics overcoming the problem of mimesis and any subordination of art, by using the ancient concept of continuity. Consequently, it traces an ontology of continuity considering nature as landscape, the persons who inhabit it as character, and the passage of the character in the landscape as journey. In addition, it also addresses the problem of continuity and globalization. As such, it is of special interest to readers of aesthetic and critical thinking, as well as literary and sociocultural scholars.
