Essential for Non-Specialists

by Docent on Jul 26, 2007

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 attempts to link evaluation of the various arts, something quite difficult to do.
