  • Introductory Lectures on Aestheticsby Georg Hegel; Michael Inwood; Bernard Bosanquet

    Penguin Books Ltd 2004; US$ 15.50

    No philosopher has held a higher opinion of art than Hegel, yet nor was any so profoundly pessimistic about its prospects - despite living in the German golden age of Goethe, Mozart and Schiller. For if the artists of classical Greece could find the perfect fusion of content and form, modernity faced complicating - and ultimately disabling - questions.... more...

  • Thomas Reid?s Lectures on the Fine Artsby P. Kivy

    Springer Netherlands 2012; US$ 90.99

    The past few years have seen a revival of interest in Thomas Reid's philosophy. His moral theory has been studied by D. D. Raphael (The Moral Sense) and his entire philosophical position by S. A.

  • A Discourse on Novelty and Creationby C.R. Hausman

    Springer Netherlands 2012; US$ 96.34

    Over the past two decades, the number of studies of creativity has in­ creased enormously. Although these studies represent a wide variety of perspectives, the largest proportion of them falls within the province of the social and behavioral sciences. Perhaps this is due to the impetus of experimental psychologists, who recognized the special problems... more...

  • Speaking of Artby P. Kivy

    Springer Netherlands 2012; US$ 82.43

    As the title of this book was meant to suggest, its subject is the way we talk about (and write about) works of art: or, rather, one of the ways, namely, the way we describe works of art for critical purposes. Be­ cause I wished to restrict my subject matter in this way, I have made a sharp, and no doubt largely artificial distinction between describing... more...

  • Intimacyby Ziyad Marar

    Taylor and Francis 2014; US$ 17.95

    The hope for intimacy lies deep within us all. That moment of feeling uniquely understood, the antidote to isolation, is what gives us value, validation and self-belief. But as Ziyad Marar shows in this fascinating and engaging study, intimacy is a tricky business. The prevalence of social media, for example, is a sign of our desire for human connection,... more...
