David Lloyd offers Under Representation as a contribution to the genealogy of the racial formation of the human in aesthetic culture. There have been far too few substantive accounts of the central role of the aesthetic in the emergence and dissemination of that universal human subjecthood. In Under Representation, Lloyd argues that the constitutive relation between the concepts of universality, freedom, and humanity and the racial order of the modern world is grounded in the founding texts of the disciplines that articulated them and that we now term the humanities.
