Philosophy and Art Paperback / softback
Edited by Daniel O. Dahlstrom
Part of the Studies in Philosophy and the History of Philosophy series
The 13 essays in this collection are marked by a diversity of philosophical styles and perspectives on art.
While some authors focus on specific forms of art, others are more concerned with the interpretation given to art by past and contemporary philosophers and artists.
In some essays nothing less than the outline of a systematic account of the arts is ventured, even as other authors raised the question of the very possibility of such interpretations or argue for the conditions that must be met by an adequate account or evaluation of the arts.
Yet, in one way or another, all the essays address the question of specifying the distinctiveness of artworks or art itself.
