    by Docent

    This book is especially valuable for the non-specialist in aesthetics or philosophy of art. Its author writes readable, fluent, elegant English which any educated person can understand and follow. He links the various eras of artistic endeavor, showing links and progression. He is in favor of objective standards in art criticism, and does not fully subscribe to the theory of art as expression dominant since John Dewey, Collingwood, and others. He attempts to link evaluation of the various arts, something quite difficult to do.
