9780415349789: Philosophy of the Arts: An Introduction to Aesthetics

Philosophy of the Arts presents a comprehensive and accessible introduction to those coming to aesthetics and the philosophy of art for the first time. The third edition is greatly enhanced by new sections on art and beauty, modern art, Aristotle and katharsis, and Hegel. Each chapter has been thoroughly revised with fresh material and extended discussions. As with previous editions, the book:

  • is jargon-free and will appeal to students of music, art history and literature as well as philosophy
  • looks at a wide range of the arts from film, painting and architecture to fiction, music and poetry
  • discusses a range of philosophical theories of thinkers such as Hume, Kant, Gaender, Collingwood, Derrida, Hegel and Croce
  • contains regular summaries and suggestions for further reading.
