Creation of Art by Berys Gaut
Book DescriptionAlthough creativity, from Plato onwards, has been recognized as a topic in philosophy, it has been overshadowed by investigations of the meanings and values of works of art. In this collection of essays a distinguished roster of philosophers of art redress this trend. The subjects discussed include the nature of creativity and the process of artistic creation; the role that creative making should play in our understanding and evaluation of art; relations between concepts of creation and creativity; and ideas of tradition, metaphor, genius, imagination and genre. This is an important collection that will be eagerly sought by philosophers of art as well as theorists in art history, cinema studies and literary criticism.

Art, Emotion and Ethics, Paperback (August 2009)» View all books by Berys Gaut
Can a good work of art be evil? Berys Gaut argues that artworks are always aesthetically flawed if they have a moral defect that is aesthetically relevant. He shows how moral goodness is a kind of beauty, that artworks can teach us about morality, and that it is right for emotional responses to artworks to be guided in part by moral considerations.
