Editorial Reviews

From the Publisher

“These lively debates by some of today’s most prominent philosophers of art explore the multiple ways the arts engage our cognition, imagination, emotions, and even our moral sensibilities. The accessibility of these discussions makes them ideal for classroom use, while their range and depth make them equally of interest to philosophers who work in the field.” Susan Feagin, Temple University

“By virtue of its astute selection of topics and distinguished contributors, this volume will help to advance debate on a number of central issues in contemporary aesthetics. It also provides an excellent central text for a cutting-edge course on the subject.” Paisley Livingston, Lingnan University
