Paul Eggert's brave book considers together architectural restoration (houses, churches), art conservation (Rembrandt, the Sistine Chapel, and Leonardo da Vinci), and textual scholarship (German g Gabler's Ulysses, Shakespeare and Middleton, Dreiser and Lawrence).

Paul Eggert's brave book considers together architectural restoration (houses, churches), art conservation (Rembrandt, the Sistine Chapel, and Leonardo da Vinci), and textual scholarship (German g Gabler's Ulysses, Shakespeare and Middleton, Dreiser and Lawrence). If a musicologist objects to the failure to include musical "texts" in this panoply, it is not from a "déformation professionelle," but because there is much to be learned from similarities and differences involving this repertory.

Securing the Past book. Paul Eggert shows how they have been philosophically undermined by postmodern theories and charts another, richer way forward to a new future for the past.

We all have a stake in the past and in its tangible preservation, and we trust professionals to preserve our cultural heritage for the future. However, restoration in all its forms is entangled in many contemporary theoretical debates and problems. This book is the first concerted effort to examine together the linked philosophies of the different arts of preserving and uncovering the past: the restoration of buildings, conservation of works of art, and editing of literary works to retrieve their original or intended texts. By investigating a series of recent crises in each of these areas, Securing the Past shows how their underlying justifications relate closely to one another. Paul Eggert shows how they have been philosophically undermined by postmodern theories and charts another, richer way forward to a new future for the past.

Paul Eggert approaches the past with a breadth of philosophical insight, a range of examples from the humanities, and a clarity of expression, that few contemporary authors possess. He problematises the concept of 'preservation' with an emphasis on literary work, art work, and architecture, taking into account the many ways in which postmodernity has muddied the waters of 'the text' and 'the author'. He thus constantly reminds us that we - in the present - cannot escape from the objects from the past that we preserve, even as we try to disown their status as 'objects'. He takes us carefully through one paradox after another with the help of philosophy and considerable practical experience as an editor. The result is masterly. The only drawback is the absence of music, or film, perhaps, in Eggert's generous sway.
