Summary:
Philosophical Perspectives on Art presents a series of essays devoted to two of the most fundamental topics in the philosophy of art: the distinctive character of artworks and what is involved in understanding them as art. In Part I, Stephen Davies considers a wide range of questions about the nature and definition of art. Part II, he turns to the interpretation and appreciation of art. Anyone with an interest in aesthetics or art theory will find thepapers in this volume fascinating reading.
