  • A Critical Rationalist Aestheticsby Joseph Agassi; Ian Jarvie

    Editions Rodopi 2008; US$ 56.00

    This book is a first attempt to cover the whole area of aesthetics from the point of view of critical rationalism. It takes up and expands upon the more narrowly focused work of E. H. Gombrich, Sheldon Richmond, and Raphael Sassower and Louis Ciccotello. The authors integrate the arts into the scientific world view and acknowledge that there is an... more...

    Lexington Books 2010; US$ 39.99

    Aesthetics and Modernity brings together Agnes Heller's most recent essays on aesthetic genres such as painting, music, literature and comedy, aesthetic reception and embodiment in the context of the continuing pitfalls of modernity. The essays also throw light on Heller's theories of values, emotions and feelings, embodiment, and modernity. Those... more...

  • Artistic Judgementby Graham McFee

    Springer Netherlands 2011; US$ 137.44

    Artistic Judgement sketches a framework for an account of art suitable to its philosophical investigation.

  • Aesthetic Essaysby Malcolm Budd

    OUP Oxford 2008; US$ 36.99

    Malcolm Budd presents a selection of his work in aesthetics. Some essays deal with the abstract heart of aesthetics: issues such as the nature and scope of the aesthetic, the validity of aesthetic judgements, realism and anti-realism, pleasure and value, and the aim of art. Others focus on specific art forms: music and pictorial representation. more...

  • The Apprehension of Beautyby Donald Meltzer; Meg Harris Williams

    Harris Meltzer Trust 2008; US$ 25.95

    This volume has grown over the years as a family project of Martha Harris, her two daughters Meg and Morag and her husband, Donald Meltzer. It therefore has its roots in English literature and its branches waving wildly about in Psycho-analysis. It is earnestly hoped that it will reveal more problems than it will solve. more...

  • Rhetoric Of The Unselfconscious In D H Lby Masami Nakabayashi

    UPA 2011; US$ 34.99

    In this study of the Lady Chatterley novels, Masami Nakabayashi pays particular attention to D.H. Lawrence's language for the feelings and for the life of the unselfconscious, sexual body. The novels constantly find ways of verbalising the characters' internalised experiences as they occur in states of unselfconsciousness. Lawrence's language for sensual... more...

  • Nelson Goodman and the Case for a Kalological Aestheticsby Dr Nikolaos Gkogkas; Professor T. J. Diffey

    Palgrave Macmillan 2008; US$ 105.00

    Based on Nelson Goodman's conception of language and of pragmatically inherited meaning, this book looks at the arts as systems of particular symbols. The author offers an approach to kalology as a metaphysical implication of symbological functioning. more...

  • Sensibility and Senseby Arnold Berleant

    Andrews UK 2011; US$ 20.99

    Aesthetic sensibility rests on perceptual experience and characterizes not only our experience of the arts but our experience of the world. Sensibility and Sense offers a philosophically comprehensive account of humans' social and cultural embeddedness encountered, recognized, and fulfilled as an aesthetic mode of experience. Extending the range... more...

    VS Verlag für Sozialwissenschaften 2009; US$ 17.76

  • Theorien der Avantgardeby Christine Magerski

    VS Verlag für Sozialwissenschaften 2011; US$ 20.43

    Nicht ohne Häme bemerkte Arnold Gehlen 1966, dass es einmal eine wissenschaftliche Kunstlehre als wesentlichen Bestandteil der Philosophie gegeben habe, die als Ästhetik für Phänomene wie den Avantgardismus zuständig gewesen sei. Doch scheinen diese Bemühungen eingestellt, was Gehlen zum Anlass nimmt, den Avantgardismus aus der Perspektive der Soziologie... more...
