This chapter explores the early aesthetic of Georg Lukács. It discusses the factors that influenced Lukács' conception of modernity: romantic anti-capitalism and Hungarian culture and society. The chapter provides a more conditional delineation of the early aesthetic as a prelude to a more substantive analysis of Luk'cs' first engagement with film theory in his ‘Thoughts Towards an Aesthetic of the Cinema’/‘Gedanken zu einer Ästhetic des Kino’ (1911/1913).

Keywords:   aesthetic, George Lukács, romantic anti-capitalism, Hungarian culture and society, film theory, cinema
