Science and Aesthetic Judgement : A Study in Taine's Critical Method, Hardback Book

Science and Aesthetic Judgement : A Study in Taine's Critical Method Hardback

Part of the Routledge Library Editions: Aesthetics series

Description

First published in 1953. This title provides an exposition and discussion on Hippolyte Taine (1828-1893), the leader of the Naturalist movement in French criticism.

The book examines his theories and some of his practice, as a critic of literature and art.

A more general consideration of the chief issues raised by his central problem is also given, namely the attempt to approach the analysis and judgement of works of art historically, and thus to provide an objective basis of criticism.

This title will be of interest to students of art history and philosophy.
