Contemplating Art is a compendium of writings from the last ten years by one of the leading figures in aesthetics, Jerrold Levinson. The twenty-four essays range over issues in general aesthetics and those relating to specific arts--in particular music, film, and literature. It will appeal not only to philosophers but also to musicologists, literary theorists, art critics, and reflective lovers of the arts.

Review:

...over the last twenty years or so, Jerrold Levinson's work has been undoubtedly amongst the most wide-ranging and highly regarded in the field of philosophical aesthetics...interesting and original... It is this mixture of profoundly investigative and innovative essays that leaves the most lasting impression on the reader, leading us to wonder, whether, despite his previous achievements, Levinson's most interesting and important work is yet to come... Elisabeth Schellekens, Mind an excellent book...Levinson is essential reading for contemporary aesthetics. Derek Matravers, British Journal of Aesthetics
