Pages crisp and clean, though mildly age-toned throughout; binding square, spine uncreased; soft cover shows a bit of shelf rubbing at the spine ends and corners and a tiny thumbnail crease at the bottom front, otherwise excellent. Bookseller Inventory #
Synopsis: Contemporary visual art stands on the ruins of beauty. What is the place of aesthetic in the experience of such art? And how has it changed in the two hundred years since the emergence of the modern conception of art as the object of a distinctive kind of pleasure? The essays in this volume, by philosophers and art theorists from Britain, France, Germany and the USA (Christopher Menke and Jay Bernstein), investigate the changing role of the aesthetic in art. From an Aesthetic Point of View is one of a new series of books, Prisms, which aims to bring to bring the best of contemporary philosophical thought about culture to the attention of a wider literary public.
