Synopsis

"A beautiful, original, and very provocative book-a model of creative research. Nathalie Heinich makes a very significant contribution to the sociological analysis of artistic value and to the sociology of culture more generally. She propose[s] a critique of genius theory that will strongly shape the way we think about cultural genius."--Michele Lamont, Princeton University "A beautiful, original, and provocative book--a model of creative research.
