    En Venezuela, el modernismo llega con retraso y aparece detrás de los últimos vestigios del romanticismo.

In den Künsten hat die Sage von Prometheus... more...

    Taylor and Francis 2003; US$ 46.95

    Almost all of us would agree that the experience of art is deeply rewarding. Why this is the case remains a puzzle; nor does it explain why many of us find works of art much more important than other sources of pleasure. Art and Knowledge argues that the experience of art is so rewarding because it can be an important source of knowledge about ourselves... more...
