Aesthetics: A Beginner's Guide
What is art? Why do we find some things beautiful but not others? Is it wrong to share MP3s? These are just some of the questions explored by aesthetics, the philosophy of art. In Aesthetics: A Beginner's Guide, this sweeping introduction, Charles Taliaferro skilfully guides us through different theories of art and beauty, tackling issues such as who owns art and what happens when art and morality collide.
From Plato on poetry to Ringo Starr on the drums, Aesthetics: A Beginner's Guide is a perfect introductory text for anyone interested in the fascinating questions art can raise.
Charles Taliaferro is Professor of Philosophy at St. Olaf College, Minnesota. He is the author of over twenty books on philosophy and lectures on aesthetics and the philosophy of religion.
