Product description


Crowther's argument offers an interesting possibility for reading art as a mode of image making...The book's greatest strength may be in the opportunities it provides for future studies on how art can be thought from more open theoretical orientations as opposed to predetermined value-based systems. (Michelle Lavigne, Journal of Aesthetics and Art Criticism)

This book is rich and sweeping, ambitious and dense, taking its reader through a fast-paced argument which addresses and borrows from cultural criticism, transcendental idealism, phenomenology, and hermenuetics...I found Crowther's book a stimulating read. It is unusually wide in its scope, it deals with several of the central questions for philosophy of art, and it offers an occasion to think hard about the deeper commitments we have both as philosophers and as art-lovers. (Ingvild Torsen, Notre Dame Philosophical Reviews)

About the Author

Paul Crowther is Professor of Philosophy and the Visual Arts at Jacobs University Bremen in Germany.
