From the Back Cover:

This collection of papers focuses on theories and practices in relation to the arts around the globe, in particular, those that have been ignored or marginalized by analytic or Anglo-American aesthetics and philosophy of art. The intention is to explain specific ways that the concepts of the aesthetic and of the arts might be enriched and enhanced. Indeed, in some cases the participation in artistic practices and the experience of art are deeply embedded in one’ s sense of self, in moral action, and in how one negotiates one’s way through the world.

About the Author:

Susan L. Feagin is Visiting Research Professor of Philosophy at Temple University and the editor of The Journal of Aesthetics and Art Criticism. She is the author of Reading with Feeling: The Aesthetics of Appreciation (Cornell, 1996) and co-editor, with Patrick Maynard, of Aesthetics (Oxford, 1997). She writes generally on philosophy of the visual arts, emotions and art, and philosophy of literature.
