About the Author:

Alex Neill is a Senior Lecturer and Aaron Ridley is a Professor, both at the University of Southampton, UK.

Review:

'A most valuable supplement to any philosophical aesthetics course, one that would enliven and freshen it up, partly by deftly engaging students.' The Times Higher Education Supplement

'My first choice for a core text in an undergraduate course would be Neill and Ridley. On every topic their lively collection stimulates thought.' The European Journal of Philosophy
