Editorial Reviews


"A major, pathbreaking work, The Rules of Art will stimulate theoretical debates for years to come."—Le Nouvel Observateur

"The Rules of Art is consistently interesting, sometimes enthrallingly so. It is written with a clarity not commonly encountered in French writers on art, and with an irascible authority to which Bourdieu's acuity and learning certainly entitle him."—Arthur C. Danto, Johnsonian Professor Emeritus, Columbia University
