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)

On rule that goes beyond cannons contemporary art history designated
on 27 March 2014 - Published on Amazon.com
Very detailed contest against formalism and institution(al critigue) and conceptualism for their exclusiveness. Quite understandable, even agree that there is and there can be rule that goes beyond cannons contemporary art history designated. He calls it normative aesthetics aka trans cultural and transhitorical. It rings somewhat similar tone of Donald Kuspit's New Master he described in his book End of Art. But my comparison to Kuspit is not valid since I did not finish Kuspit's book. While I respect his attempt, I wonder if his Normative Esthetics can overcome the politics and interventions from ruling class.
