Editorial Reviews


"Rediscovering Aesthetics is an impressive collection that lives up to the mission outlined in its subtitle...this book is to be highly recommended to both experts and merely curious readers."—Vladimir D. Thomas, Philosophy in Review

"Rediscovering Aesthetics collects the essays of a number of the most distinguished and articulate intellectuals and artists of our day, all of whom have original and challenging things to say about important issues. This powerful book, which focuses mostly on the visual arts, has ramifications for the reconsideration of the aesthetic in many different areas of artistic practice."—Martin Jay, University of California, Berkeley

"Rediscovering Aesthetics is a valuable contribution that begins with the premise that recent developments in art history and practice have engendered a recovery of the place and role of aesthetics. It refreshingly dispenses with questions of aesthetics' origins and instead inserts itself in the midst of modern histories of art."—Tom Huhn, School of Visual Arts
