Nelson lays it all out, but leaves the judgment to us.
That said, I enjoyed every perspective it gave; and perspectives are the entirety of this book. It's very open about criticisms and attacking the author's own initial beliefs. Nelson does a great job remaining unbiased, or if she's biased, to address it and explain it.
There's numerous critiques of common perspectives, but most of this book is regarding art which the common person might not know of, providing a new ground for understanding.
