Library Journal - Library Journal
McEvilley directs our attention to the often obscured nature and function of ``healthy'' art criticism in a cultural system that includes artwork, artists, audience, and capital. His approach is historical and heavily informed by philosophical cycles that have addressed aesthetic concerns over the years. While usually overcoming the expert's tendency to write in jargon, McEvilley does ask his readers to bring to the text an understanding of the history of philosophy as well as knowledge of the history of art criticism in recent eras. Recommended for collections serving graduate students in these areas and for very well-informed lay readers.--Francisca Goldsmith, Berkeley P.L., Cal.
