About the Author:


Frank Sibley (1923-1996) was the first Professor of Philosophy to be appointed at Lancaster University, a position he occupied until his retirement.

Review:


"A valuable and stimulating collection that shows Sibley at his fearless best in asking and making distinctions that raise doubts about some of our most entrenched beliefs and assumptions concerning art and aesthetic."--The Review of Metaphysics

Book Description Oxford University Press, United Kingdom, 2006. Paperback. Book Condition: New. Language: English . Brand New Book ***** Print on Demand *****.Approach to Aesthetics collects all Frank Sibley s major papers on philosophical aesthetics. The availability within single covers of his published papers alone would be welcomed by students and scholars of aesthetics. The value of this book is greatly enhanced by the inclusion of five substantial papers written in his later years and hitherto unpublished. Most of the published papers are concerned with a group of related topics: the nature of aesthetic qualities and their relation to non-aesthetic qualities, the relation of aesthetic description to aesthetic evaluation, the different levels of evaluation, the objectivity of aesthetic judgement. The later papers constitute both a continuation and a significant development of Sibley s individual approach to aesthetics. One group of papers discusses the distinction between attributive and predicative uses of adjectives, first elucidating the distinction, and then considering its application to beautiful and ugly . Another major paper is an extensive study of the aesthetic significance of tastes and smells, a topic Sibley considered to be much neglected, whose examination could throw interesting light on the boundaries of the concept of the aesthetic. This collection constitutes a wide-ranging yet coherent account of aesthetics by one of the most acute philosophical minds of his generation, one which is and will continue to be a source of controversy and a model of analytical method.
