    Oxford University Press 2007; US$ 34.99

    Artworld Metaphysics turns a critical eye upon aspects of the artworld, and articulates some of the problems, principles, and norms implicit in the actual practices of artistic creation, interpretation, evaluation, and commodification.

  • The Apprehension of Beautyby Donald Meltzer; Meg Harris Williams

    Harris Meltzer Trust 2008; US$ 26.95
