封面
Wiley, 2008年4月15日 - 192 頁
Now, for the first time, a philosopher undertakes a systematic investigation of the moral and aesthetic issues to which cultural appropriation gives rise.
  • Cultural appropriation is a pervasive feature of the contemporary world (the Parthenon Marbles remain in London; white musicians from Bix Beiderbeck to Eric Clapton have appropriated musical styles from African-American culture)
  • Young offers the first systematic philosophical investigation of the moral and aesthetic issues to which cultural appropriation gives rise
  • Tackles head on the thorny issues arising from the clash and integration of cultures and their artifacts
  • Questions considered include: “Can cultural appropriation result in the production of aesthetically successful works of art?” and “Is cultural appropriation in the arts morally objectionable?”
  • Part of the highly regarded New Directions in Aesthetics series
