Philosophy and the Artsby Andrew Harrison, Ray Monk
Philosphy and the Arts examines how questions of understanding the pictorial and narrative arts relate to central themes in philosophy. The ways of understanding art are ways of understanding what it is to be human. Much of what baffles or misleads us in the arts invokes what puzzles us about ourselves. The issues raised are thus central to philosophy as a discipline. Failures to understand art can be philosophical failures.
