“This is an important book and one of the best to appear in a long while. There is a special reason to recommend the book to an American audience. Interest in Aesthetics has always been high in this country, but American aestheticians have not always been very clear about what the philosophical problems of aesthetics are, and especially have they not been clear about the kinds of problems they wanted to address. Mr. Scruton is very clear about both of these.” – B.R. Tilghman, Journal of Aesthetics and Art Criticism
