Review:

"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:

This work is an expanded and updated new edition of this textbook. It presents a comprehensive introduction to those coming to aesthetics and the philosophy of art for the first time. Two entirely new sections are presented on digital music and environmental aesthetics and all other chapters have been thoroughly revised and brought up-to-date. As with the first edition, the book: is written in a wholly untechnical style and appeals to students of music, art history and literature as well as philosophy; looks at a wide range of the arts from film, painting and architecture to fiction, music and poetry; discusses a range of philosophical theories of thinkers such as Hume, Kant, Habermas, Collingwood, Derrida, Hegel and Schopenhauer; contains regular summaries and suggestions for further reading; and now includes two new sections on digital music and environmental aesthetics.
