About the Author:

David Boersema is the Douglas C. Strain Professor of Natural Philosophy and Distinguished University Professor at Pacific University in Oregon. He is the author of Philosophy of Human Rights: Theory and Practice (Westview Press), Pragmatism and Reference,and Philosophy of Science, and coeditor of Spiritual and Political Dimensions on Nonviolence and Peace.

Review:

"Philosophy of Art is an accessible and well-organized text. The integration of primary source materials into the writing allows students to engage with challenging thinking without sacrificing the clarifying narrative. I find the hybrid format very appealing."
Kelly A. Parker, Grand Valley State University 

"Combining the virtues of an anthology and a monograph, Boersema's book skillfully weaves together a collection of important essays in contemporary philosophy of art with astute and thought-provoking commentary. Boersema offers a comprehensive examination of a broad range of issues that is truly accessible to non-specialists. Philosophy of Art: Aesthetic Theory and Practice will be an invaluable tool for readers new to the philosophy of art."
Christopher Bartel, Appalachian State University

"Boersema provides teachers of aesthetics with a thoughtful blend of [primary readings and secondary texts]. The readings for each chapter are well chosen and the author writes in very readable prose. Everything fits together nicely, and the student receives a careful walk-through of each essay before it appears. Highly Recommended."
