From the Publisher"Art as Language is in itself extremely valuable as an example of the still largely unappreciated relevance of Wittgenstein's work to traditional philosophical issues. . . . This book, as a more or less encyclopedic critique of aesthetic theories from a Wittgensteinian perspective, will be enlightening to aesthetic theorists who want to know, not what Wittgenstein said about art, but what the relevance of his work is to their use of language as a point of reference for interpreting art."—Choice
"The arguments are persuasive and deftly executed, and the examples are well chosen. Initiates into the main debates of analytic aesthetics who share the author's sense that the latter tradition is in need of internal critique . . . will not be disappointed."—Casey Haskins, SUNY at Purchase, The Journal of Aesthetics and Art Criticism. 1999.
"A clear and intelligent book. Hagberg's strategy is to show the consequences of holding a Wittgensteinian view of language and mind for aesthetic theories which are either based on, or analogous to, other non-Wittgensteinian positions about language and mind. This is an important project."—Stanley Bates, Middlebury College
