Philosophy of Art
Readings Ancient and Modern
Philosophy of Art by Alex Neill
Book DescriptionThis anthology is intended as a core text for courses in aesthetics or philosophy of art. It contains a wealth of readings from both classic and contemporary sources, and aims to present substantial selections from those texts rather than mere "snippets." Readings are organized historically within four broad themes so that students can see how concepts of art have evolved and been debated. Each reading is introduced by the authors, who suggest connections between the reading and others in the anthology. Unlike other anthologies on the market, "The Philosophy of Art" is both comprehensive and affordable, making it the ideal book for course use.
