Editorial Reviews

Review

All of the writings are scholarly and articulate, and the book they together compose would make a fine addition to any thinkers library. Jeffrey Strayer, Philosophy in Review Peter Lamarque's wittily titled book ... is to be welcomed for the way in which it demonstrates the significance of its subject matter and its centrality within the analytical canon. Employing his stylist philosophical prose, Lamaerque raises, and offers answers to, the central questions in the metaphysics of art. Furthermore, and I think this may be the work's prime source of value, the book elegantly combines and elaborates a set of answers to these questions in such a way as to complete the reader with a complete metaphysics of art that has claim to represent hegemonic opinion within the discipline. ... I really enjoyed this book. I recommend it heartily as an antidote to anyone tempted to think of the metaphysics of art as a philosophical backwater. Julian Dodd, Mind
