Description - Ideas About Art by Kathleen K. Desmond

Ideas About Art is an intelligent, accessible introductory
text for students interested in learning how to think about
aesthetics. It uses stories drawn from the experiences of
individuals involved in the arts as a means of exposing readers to
the philosophies, theories, and arguments that shape and drive
visual art.

An accessible, story-driven introduction to aesthetic theory
and philosophy

Prompts readers to develop independent ideas about aesthetics;
this is a guide on how to think, not what to think

Includes discussions of non-western, contemporary, and
discipline-specific theories

Examines a range of art-based dilemmas across a wide
variety of disciplines - from art and design and law to visual and
museum studies
