    Taylor and Francis 2015; US$ 54.95

    This innovative study re-evaluates the philosophical significance of aesthetics in the context of contemporary debates on the nature of philosophy.

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

    Springer Netherlands 2012; US$ 119.00

    Over the past two decades, the number of studies of creativity has in­ creased enormously.

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$ 99.00

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...

  • Listeningby Jean Luc Nancy; Charlotte Mandell

    Fordham University Press 2007; US$ 17.99

    In this lyrical meditation on listening, Jean-Luc Nancy examines sound in relation to the human body. How is listening different from hearing? What does listening entail?

  • Touching Surfacesby Anca Cristofovici

    Editions Rodopi 2009; US$ 64.40

    Who isn’t seduced by the idea of an affinity between aging and aesthetics? Yet, when does aging truly begin? What attributes does the aesthetic embrace?

The... more...
