Few today can escape exposure to mass art. Nevertheless, despite the fact that mass art provides the primary source of aesthetic experience for the majority of people, mass art is a topic that has been neglected by analytic philosophers of art. This book aims to address that lacuna. It shows why philosophers have previously resisted and/or misunderstood mass art and it develops new frameworks for understanding mass art in relation to the emotions, morality and ideology.

Noel Carroll is Monroe C. Beardsley Professor of Philosophy at the University of WisconsinReview:
`the very term around which his elaborate train of thought revolves, "mass art", turns out to be somewhat patronising in itself ... Nevertheless, the sheer clarity of argument, and the range of the ideas explored and clarified, compensates for the embarrassment. This is an unusual book and unravels whole skeins of arguments in a useful way.' The Times Higher Education Supplement
