Product Description

Review

Reviews of previous editions:

"This is an immensely useful book that belongs in every college library and on the bookshelves of all serious students of aesthetics." - Journal of Aesthetics and Art Criticism

"Attests to the richness of modern aesthetics…the essays in central topics – many of which are written by well-known figures – succeed in being informative, balanced and intelligent without being too difficult." - British Journal of Aesthetics

"This handsome reference volume. . . belongs in every library." - CHOICE

"The succinctness and clarity of the essays will make this a source that individuals not familiar with aesthetics will find extremely helpful." - The Philosophical Quarterly

"An outstanding resource in aesthetics…this text will not only serve as a handy reference source for students and faculty alike, but it could also be used as a text for a course in the philosophy of art." - Australasian Journal of Philosophy

"The sheer eclecticism of this work – the variety of content, method, outlook and sensibility – shows the vigour and vitality that aesthetics as a branch of modern philosophy has come to assume in the last two or three decades. Its compilation is a real achievement, and it will appeal to a very wise range of readers. Some of these essays are, and will remain, classics of their kind." - Richard Wollheim

Format: Paperback
This is written in response to Alan Dean who is critical because the entries lack details of prior publication. I am the author of one of the entries and can confirm that it was an original piece of work written specially for the collection. I hope this removes your doubts. I've given it five stars although my declaration of vested interest should be obvious!

Excellent articles on aesthetics drawn from respected philosophical publications and academics. BUT there is nothing to show where the papers have been drawn from. They are, I suspect, original entries composed specifically for the Companion but each has a full list of references so excellent for research. The editors are Berys Gaut and Dominic Lopes and have compiled an authoritative collection that reflects the main themes from the philosophy of art.

The essays are quite dense and make references which are less than contemporary.
