  • Artworld Metaphysicsby Robert Kraut

    Oxford University Press 2007; US$ 38.99

    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. Aesthetic theory is treated as descriptive and explanatory, rather than normative: a theory that relates to artworld... more...

    Harris Meltzer Trust 2008; US$ 27.95

    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.

    Palgrave Macmillan 2008; US$ 105.00
