The Wake of Art: Criticism, Philosophy, and the Ends of Taste / Edition 1by Arthur C. Danto, Gregg Horowitz, Tom Huhn, Saul Ostrow
Pub. Date: 06/01/1998
Publisher: Taylor & Francis
Since the mid-1980s, Arthur C. Danto has been increasingly concerned with the implications of the demise of modernism. Out of the wake of modernist art, Danto discerns the emergence of a radically pluralistic art world. His essays illuminate this novel art world as well as the fate of criticism within it. As a result, Danto has crafted the most compelling philosophy of art criticism since Clement Greenburg. Gregg Horowitz and Tom Huhn analyse the constellation of philosophical and critical elements in Danto's new- Hegelian art theory. In a provocative encounter, they employ themes from Kantian aesthetics to elucidate the continuing persistence of taste in shaping even this most sophisticated philosophy of art.
