"Aesthetics: a Comprehensive Book" was a required text book for an Aesthetics class I am taking. Cahn includes a variety of readings ranging from ancient philosophers Plato and Artistotle through to modern philosophers. Cahn offers a variety of approaches and arguments to study in "Aestheics." As I am taking an introductory course, I find this text is not an accessible text for most classmates. Many students struggle to read a majority of the text and there are a few that do not comprehend at all. I wished there were articles provided that were written in more "common" terms. Or perhaps the text could offer an aside with an elementary explanation of the philosophy.
A good text for a more advanced student of Aesthetics.
