Philosophizing Art Selected Essays
Available from more sellers
Paperback. 288 pages. Dimensions: 8.8in. x 6.7in. x 0.8in.Arthur Dantos work has always affirmed a deep relationship between philosophy and art. These essays explore this relationship through a number of concrete cases in which either artists are driven by philosophical agendas or their art is seen as solving philosophical problems in visual terms. The essays cover a varied terrain, with subjects including Giottos use of olfactory data in The Raising of Lazarus; chairs in art and chairs as art; Mel Bochners Wittgenstein drawings; the work of Robert Motherwell, Andy Warhol, and Robert Irwin; Louis Kahn as Archai-Tekt; and visual truth in film. Also featured are a meditation on the battle of Gettysburg; and a celebration of the Japanese artist Shiko Munakata, an essay that is partly autobiographical. Arthur C. Danto is one of the most original and multitalented philosophers writing today, a thinker whose interests traverse the boundaries of traditional understandings of philosophy. Best known for his contributions to the philosophy of art and aesthetics, Danto is also esteemed for his work in the history of philosophy, the philosophy of history, philosophical psychology, and action theory. These two volumes, each with an introduction by the author, contain essays spanning more than twenty-five years that have been selected to highlight the inseparability of philosophy and art in Dantos work. Together they present the thinking of Arthur C. Danto at his very best. This item ships from multiple locations. Your book may arrive from Roseburg,OR, La Vergne,TN.
