What is art? THE NATURE OF ART: AN ANTHOLOGY explores that question and shows you how it's been answered over the years by both Western and Non-Western thinkers. You'll not only read selections from these great writers, you'll also get study questions that draw your attention to the key points you just read. That makes THE NATURE OF ART: AN ANTHOLOGY the resource you need for test time as well.

Review:

"Thomas Wartenberg's THE NATURE OF ART is easily the most student-friendly introduction to the philosophy of art available today." -- Dwayne A. Tunstall, Grand Valley State University

"The best available short anthology of historically and conceptually diverse approaches to aesthetics." -- David K. Johnson, Massachusetts College of Liberal Arts

"A good, well-selected and well-edited collection of what needs-to-be-known by anyone studying the philosophy or history of art." -- Charles W. Harvey, University of Central Arkansas

"Very accessible and surprisingly comprehensive." -- John Gibson, University of Louisville

"Wartenberg's volume is a fantastic resource that covers the broad range of views that define philosophy of art. It is an excellent text for any introductory course that plans to cover both analytic and continental philosophy of art." -- William Seeley, Bates College
