Description - Aesthetics and the Philosophy of Art by Peter Lamarque
This anthology provides comprehensive coverage of the major contributions of analytic philosophy to aesthetics and the philosophy of art, from the earliest beginnings in the 1950s to the present time. The volume presents the classics of this tradition, and in so doing displays the very foundations of modern debates. Aesthetics and the Philosophy of Art also features a selection of key papers from subsequent contributors that illustrate how the debates developed and how issues arose as analytic philosophers increasingly turned their attention to this area.The volume is a comprehensive guide for students and researchers in aesthetics and philosophy of art, conveniently making available all those papers most often cited. The papers are grouped into sections, ordered chronologically, and covering theoretical topics - identifying art, ontology, aesthetic properties, intention and interpretation, values of art, fictionality - as well as particular art forms, including pictorial art, literature, music, and the popular arts. A final section looks at the aesthetics of nature.
