"Straightforward, wide-ranging and above all engaged, Gordon Graham's discussion of important theories of the value of art, conducted with close attention to particular artforms, will be found highly useful by beginners in aesthetics." -Jerrold Levinson, University of Maryland.Synopsis:
Written in untechnical style, this text is for students of music, art history, and literature as well as of philosophy. It looks at all the arts, such as film, music, fiction, poetry and architecture. The text examines what the special "value" of art is, rather than what art "is". It discusses the philosophical theories of Hume, Mill, Kant, Habermas and Collingwood; the objections of Althusser, Lukacs, Levi-Strauss, Derrida; and concludes with Hegel and Schopenhauer.
