The RAA catalogue on their Anish Kapoor show makes a link between the uncanny and Edmund Burke, seeing the uncanny as the dark side of the sublime (linked to terror), but as far as I can tell Burke doesn't use the term "uncanny". Thus far google mainly finds the truism that Burke is uncanny about the French Revolution and Royle doesn't have Burke in his index. Ring any bells with anyone?
