Aesthetics and the Philosophy of Art: An Introduction
Rowman & Littlefield, 2005 - 255 頁
In Aesthetics and the Philosophy of Art, Robert Stecker introduces students to the history and evolution of aesthetics, and also makes an important distinction between aesthetics and philosophy of art. While aesthetics today is the study of value, philosophy of art deals with a much wider array of questions not just about value, addressing issues in metaphysics, epistemology, and the philosophy of mind as well. Aesthetics and the Philosophy of Art is an essential introduction to some of the central topics and approaches being debated in contemporary aesthetics and philosophy of art. By taking a stand on each of the issues addressed and arguing for certain resolutions and against others, the text does not simply present a controversy in its current state of play, but instead helps to advance it toward a solution.
