Summary

Guiding readers through major problems, issues and debates in aesthetics, this is a bias-free introduction for students studying the philosophy of art for the first time. Each chapter of the book begins by considering a particular work of art - from contemporary concetual art, through literature to TV Soap Operas - to help students understand and explore key philosophical discussions and ideas.
