For courses in Aesthetics. Unique in perspective, this collection of nearly 90 readings is designed to introduce students at any level of sophistication to the philosophical problems of aesthetics as they pertain to specific arts e.g., Painting, Photography, Music, Film and Video Art, etc. It reflects the tendency to resist thinking of art as an abstract whole and to acknowledge the diverse character of philosophical thinking about individual arts.
