What is art? THE NATURE OF ART: AN ANTHOLOGY explores that question and shows you how it has been answered over the years by both Western and non-Western thinkers. You will not only read selections from these great writers but you will also get study questions that draw your attention to the key points you just read. Hailed by reviewers and adopters for its clarity and rigor, Wartenberg's THE NATURE OF ART offers a lively and engaging introduction to the philosophy of art.

Review:

"Thomas Wartenberg's THE NATURE OF ART is easily the most student-friendly introduction to the philosophy of art available today." -- Dwayne A. Tunstall, Grand Valley State University

"A good, well-selected and well-edited collection of what needs-to-be-known by anyone studying the philosophy or history of art." -- Charles W. Harvey, University of Central Arkansas

"The best available short anthology of historically and conceptually diverse approaches to aesthetics." -- David K. Johnson, Massachusetts College of Liberal Arts

"Very accessible and surprisingly comprehensive." -- John Gibson, University of Louisville

"Wartenberg's volume is a fantastic resource that covers the broad range of views that define philosophy of art. It is an excellent text for any introductory course that plans to cover both analytic and continental philosophy of art." -- William Seeley, Bates College
