9780521786560: Beyond Aesthetics: Philosophical Essays

Beyond Aesthetics brings together philosophical essays addressing art and related issues by one of the foremost philosophers of art at work today. Countering conventional aesthetic theories--those maintaining that authorial intention, art history, morality and emotional responses are irrelevant to the experience of art--NoŽl Carroll argues for a more pluralistic and commonsensical view in which all of these factors can play a legitimate role in our encounter with art works. The book explores works of high culture and the avant-garde, as well as works of popular culture, jokes, horror novels, and suspense films.

Review:

"Beyond Aesthetics is but the latest in a series of important works in which Carroll undertakes to expose the shortcomings of traditional and conventional modes of interpretation and appreciation." Journal of Aesthetic Education
