Ontology and the Art of Tragedyby Martha Husain
Ontology and the Art of Tragedy is a sustained reflection on the principles and criteria from which to guide one's approach to Aristotle's Poetics. Its scope is twofold: historical and systematic. In its historical aspect it develops an approach to Aristotle's Poetics, which brings his distinctive philosophy of being to bear on the reception of this text. In its systematic aspect it relates Aristotle's theory of art to the perennial desiderata of any theory of art, and particularly to Kandinsky's.
“Original and well-argued, Husain’s book is a direct challenge to the growing and influential socio-political interpretation of the significance of the art of tragedy.” John P. Anton, author of Categories and Experience: Essays on Aristotelian Themes
