Ethics of Luxury: Materialism and Imagination

Jeanne Randolph
YYZ Books
Artists' Books
12.6 × 17.8 cm

In Ethics of Luxury, renowned Canadian thinker and artist Jeanne Randolph gives us a magnum opus focusing on one of the most pressing issues facing us today – how we act morally and ethically while participating in a culture of abundance, opulence and consumerism.

Randolph argues that when we use our imagination, as we do when we create, appreciate, and live with art, we are acting ethically, expressing our sense of morality in a practical, material way. With an afterword by Ihor Holubizsky.
