Aesthetics : A Beginner's Guide Paperback

Part of the Beginner's Guides series

Description

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 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, this is a perfect introductory text for anyone interested in the fascinating questions art can raise.
