This chapter studies the return to the sublime in recent philosophy and culture. It analyses and rejects the technological sublime defended by David Nye and the environmental sublime put forward by Emily Brady. There is a consideration of the link between the sublime and nostalgia, and an explanation of the link between the sublime and values.
