This review is from: What Is Art For? (Paperback)
Although there may be flaws in Dissanayake's first presentation on this topic, her ideas are revolutionary and (in their more developed form) will influence ideas about the genesis of art and its evolutionary role in human experience and culture for years to come. Her ideas are pioneering and will be quoted, argued, further developed, expanded, and expounded upon.
Best of all...this is a very readable book. In fact, its an exciting read; you may be challenged but you won't be bored.
