This chapter explores the continuities and discontinuities that exist between Georg Lukács' early aesthetic of the middle period (1908–16 period). It first presents an outline of Lukács' political involvement and writings from 1918 to 1957. The chapter then argues that the writings of the Lukács' middle period seek to establish an aesthetic typology which has a starting point that is instituted within The Theory of the Novel.

Keywords:   early aesthetic, Georg Lukács, aesthetic typology, middle period, The Theory of the Novel
