From the Publisher:

Unique in perspective, this collection of nearly 90 readings is designed to introduce students -- at any level of sophistication -- to the philosophical problems of aesthetics as they pertain to specific arts -- e.g., Painting, Photography, Music, Film and Video Art, etc. It reflects the tendency to resist thinking of art as an abstract whole and to acknowledge the diverse character of philosophical thinking about individual arts.
